However, to appreciate it, it is necessary to let go of some tenets of black metal orthodoxy, such as: high tempo music, a trebly sound which places black metal in opposition to relatively bass-heavy dance-oriented genres such as techno and hip hop, and lousy production values signifying resistance to the musical mainstream. Black One is - as might be expected from a Sunn 0))) album - slow, excruciatingly slow; it has fathomless depths of bass, even deeper than the previous releases; and it has a very subtle sound design.
Then why is it Sunn 0)))'s black metal album? Not only have US Black Metal anti-luminaries Malefic (Xasthur, Twilight) and Wrest (Leviathan, Lurker of Chalice, Twilight) joined the ranks, gloomily gargling deeply distrorted, generally unintelligible lyrics. Moreover, where White 1 and 2 appeared to be oriented towards a relatively benign paganism (cf Julian Cope’s lyrics on My wall), the focus of this album is on an intensely dark, nightmarish atmosphere that is the hallmark of a black metal album. Even more than many of the best black metal albums, Black One posits music as a mise en scene of the listener in a hellish, icy landscape – reminiscent perhaps of black metal’s Scandinavian birthground. Its lyrics, which speak of a cosmic nihilism in the Lovecraftian sense, refer to places (cemeteries, sarcophagi, pits, voids, valleys, precipices) rather than to events. One key moment on the album is on the sixth track, where one hears the – quite unnerving – sound of a huge wooden door creaking on its hinges, the sound of one of Lucio Fulci’s seven Gates of Hell slowly opening: it is a sound that functions in the music as a decor might function in the theatre.Read more ›
To call this inspired is to completely fail in giving it enough credit. The `White' Sunn O))) albums are magnificent, but this is like an entity that grew a temporary skin and crawled out to meet the end of the world. I simply cannot recommend it enough and if you have a love of shadows then you are missing pure un-cut heroin.
Life is often a dark place and there is a pleasure to be had in that. Black One is the proof and I wish you lots of happiness drinking it down.
The theme is dark and crushing and so are the compositions to match. Some of the drone and sub bass is just amazing when it all clicks together, almost hypnotizing. If you like their other stuff then you'll appreciate the progression on Black One, especially the unique vocals, but also, I'd say this is as good as White One if you are new to the band and looking for a starting point.
Beware though, Sunn O ))) are an acquired taste and a very challenging listen. So many people don't understand what these guys strive to achieve. 4 stars because a couple of tracks haven't quite clicked for me yet.
Experiment and you might just realise the majesty.
This album was a real insight into Sub-genres of Heavy Metal, a much under-rated album, thus still having underground status. I suppose I'd better compare Sunn O))) to someone, so, Earth I suppose would be the closest. Well, I hope I've done justice to this great album with this review, buy, and enjoy, for I'm sure you will.

one of my top 10 all time LPs .
That's it but i need to say more words this is stupid I am going to stop reviewing stuff on amazon unless i can make concise reviews.
Up there as one of the darkest albums ever made, each track is a dark masterpiece. I wouldn't say it's the best thin Sunn has released, but it is one of their best albums. Read morePublished on 4 Jan. 2014 by hpsmusic08
