We’ve known that drone/doom standard-beareres Sunn 0))) would be releasing their first album in six years, Kannon, in December. And while it’s likely going to be an album that will best be appreciated played very loudly and listened to as a whole, they’ve released a 15-second clip that that will likely only be heard on computer speakers. Stephen O’Malley released the clip on his Twitter page, and while the press release about the album, out on December 4, says that it’s the band’s “most outright metal” album in years, it’s hard to tell from the clip. While the clip doesn’t give all the much context to what the rest of the album is going to sound like, it’s drony, contains chants, and is pretty foreboding, which is encouraging.
Kannon will be released on Southern Lord on December 4.
