SUNN O))) & BORIS picture
"Altar" is a true collaboration album between Sunn O))) and Boris that is a result of both bands conceptualizing, writing and recording the album together as one entity. Both groups have stepped outside their previous sounds and created a wholly unique album that stands on its own unique ground. There are elements of each group's trademark sound within the album but true to each group's progressive and experimental aspects, “Altar” moves into a completely new dimension. Also contributing additional entrancing textures are the guest collaborators on this album including: • Jesse Sykes (Jesse Sykes & the Sweet Hereafter) vocals on “The Sinking Belle (Blue Sheep)”. • Kim Thayil (Soundgarden) guitar on “Blood Swamp”. • Joe Preston (Earth, Thrones, Melvins, High on Fire) vocals on: “Akuma No Kuma”. • Dylan Carlson Earth guitar on "Her Lips Were Wet With Venom (Satan Oscillate My Metallic Sonatas)".

Also: Bill Herzog, Phil Wandescher (Jesse

Two of underground music’s most eclectic forces band together for this album as drone pioneers Sunn O))) and Japanese acid victims Boris unite in a fusion of dissonant creativity.

“Altar” is rife with swelling resonance, shimmering cymbal rolls and sustaining, buzzing tones, as evidenced by the record’s opener, ”Etna.” When these five artisans of doom lay down a twenty foot thick slab of apocalyptic sludge, the result is brilliantly foreboding and patently re-definitive of the term heavy. This sort of eardrum-rattling, low-frequency hum is of the sort that makes the bowels of human beings prolapsed and causes foundations conceived by even the finest of masonry to crumble to dust.

“Akuma No Kuma” will wholly envelop you with it’s electrically-charged, bottom-feeding aural nuances, while the mysterious beauty of “The Sinking Belle (Blue Sheep)” exudes bleak brilliance as the smooth, ethereal flair imparted by the members of Boris allows a poignant balancing factor to the depth-dwelling lurch of Sunn O))). With each group of artists being forerunners in the expansion of the landscape of musical possibilities, the amalgamation of their talents on “Altar” should be considered as a furtherance of their expansion of musical horizons.

An awe-inspiring combination of ambient light and shade, “Altar” is another adeptly written chapter in the history-making annals of each of these most important artists. A brilliant mind-alteration that transcends classification, this collaboration should not be seen as any sort of one-off project, but as a radiant highlight in the career of both acts. Drone fans and lovers of experimental music alike are duty-bound to attain this ritual transcendence of perception.
