THEY rank amongst the most audacious of experimental of metal bands, and now Sunn 0))) have just announced a summer Belfast show on Monday 17th July in Limelight1.
Not for the faint-hearted Sunn 0))) mash together metal, drone, sludge, jazz with an at times minimalist approach, and for 16 years have been challenging pre-conceptions about genre definitions.
Stephen O'Malley and Greg Anderson have relentlessly pursued dark vibrating terror since they first released 'The Grimmrobe Demos' at the arse end of the 1990s.
But, when they unleashed ØØ Void a year later people began to sit up and take notice. Since then they have baffled many, bemused a multitude, but always challenged the way we take on board our musical tastes.
With a discography that is more than substantial they are also known for adding 'performance art' to their repertoire, including one show that saw vocalist Attila Csihar claw his way out of a black coffin..
No coffins are as yet planned for the Limelight show, but we're not taking anything for granted as Sunn 0)) are concerned.
Tickets for the 17th July Limelight show are on sale now from the usual outlets, priced £22.50 plus Booking Fee.
