this album is frankly insane. 3 songs lasting just over an hour containing very few component parts, especially Hell-O)))-Ween which has basically one long riff repeated over its entire 15 minutes. this would at first appear to be boring, but that is far from being the case. you listen to this album and soon you're sucked in, not wanting the riff to end as it repeats over and over until you reach a state of almost hypnosis. the repetition is the strength of this song, as bizarre as that sounds. bassAliens is a very different matter, containing again repeated riffs throughout but with very strange sounds that actually do manage to sound like aliens in the bass amp. i assume this was the effect they were going for and if so they've pulled it off remarkably well. the final song, Decay2 [Nihils' Maw] is again very different. with guest vocals from ex-Mayhem man Attila Csihar reading from an ancient Sanskrit text, this song is again very strange, containing all manner of wierd atmospherics and effects over a simple guitar and bass track. the vocals add this track an air of eerieness and uncertainty. overrall this album is an astonishing piece of work, although in terms of other sunn O))) albums is probably just behind their best work, which is probably White1 or maybe Black One, although all their albums are excellent if a little inaccessible for newcomers to the genre. other bands of this style to check out include Khanate, Earth, Boris, Asva and Stephen O'Malley's solo work (if you can find any).

Well what can you say about this ep/album. If you are unfamiliar with the sound of the sub genre of doom known as drone this is a good starting point. The main instrumeents in this ep are the bass guitar and drums. To get the most of it you need a good hifi and a fair bit of volume as most notes are opperating in the very low frequencies with minor variations throughtout. To the untrained ear it sounds like just a constant hum, but there are many permitations to it. Very very few vocals and the bpm for the tracks is probably about 5, if that! more an experiment in abstract music than proper tracks. But if you want to broaden your horizons and here new and different stuff this could be for you.

An astonishing album, my personal favourite out of the Sunn O))) I've heard so far.
As the other reviews describe, track one is guitar and bass riffage that just trances out, lovely crunchy textures and very full sonically in the now-patented Sunn 0))) style.
Bass Aliens goes off on a different but no less sinister tip, with low end subs and atmospheric guitar chimes amidst subtle soundscape.
Track three takes it home with chanting (in Sanskrit!) and more subs and eerie effects.
The overall vibe of this superbly inventive album is lulling if you're used to heavy weird music. It's kind of anthropologically exotic too, taking listeners on a subterranean trip through dark chasms, almost Lovecraftian in it's evocation of the dark forgotten places under the earth which reveal strange glimpses of lost civilisations buried for eons.
This music creates vivid pictures in one's mind, especially when heard on headphones in a darkened room, like a soundtrack to a mindblowing and as yet unmade horror movie.
Who needs drugs when you have Sunn 0)))?
