Additional info
Second LP collaboration between Sunn O))) and Ulver.

Staff pick by
Apothecary

24.03.2014 Two of the most challenging bands in the past decade combine in what can only be described as a natural choice of partners. This is exactly what you'd expect from such a collaboration: the dreamy, psychedelic ambiance that Ulver have been digging into lately, but applied in the heavy, monolithic style that Sunn O))) have come to employ. Dark and haunting, but also warm, uplifting, and beautiful, somehow all at the same time.

Rating: 7 New sample up on bandcamp, here. Not quite the type of approach I was hoping for, but sounds more or less like I expected.

Rating: 7 Pretty good. Quite like The Mount Fuji Doomjazz Corporation (though not quite up there with it in terms of quality).

To me, sounds like an intro of almost 10 minutes.

these two are related bands. I think The Mount Fuji Doomjazz Corporation is a side project of Kilimanjaro Darkjazz Ensemble.

Oh, i see. It seems less ignominious that way.

  Eternal Return is probably one of the most eerie and stunning songs I've heard in a while. At first it sounds like the two bands are doing their best and their darkest Earth impression...which causes an unwilling swell of desolation to befall you. Once the vocals hit, it goes to a brand new level.

  In case anyone want to listen this stunning collabration, its streaming over Pitchfork.

Not identical by any means, but the stuff these guys do is pretty immense.

This is what I got out of the first two minutes. Good stuff, my friend just pointed out that it sounds like bees though

Jazz bees. I'm liking it.
Troy Killjoy - 24.03.2014 at 18:20  
  Not the bees!

In all seriousness, that Mount Doom thing was actually pretty soothing.
Mr. Doctor - 24.03.2014 at 20:01  
  I've seen them life at Roadburn and damn they were awesome and so relaxing.
Plus, the visuals are fucking trippy!
InnerSelf - 24.03.2014 at 21:23  
  Their other project, The Kilimanjaro Darkjazz Ensemble, is as brilliant (though more on the lighter side of the Noir Jazz spectrum).

  Mmm please back on topic about Sun O))) and Ulver collaboration/split. Save the Mount Fuji/Killimajaro talk for another thread or even a Celestial Season thread

  I think it says a lot about the music on this collab that we're all discussing other bands instead.

kind of true. I love Sunn O))), and this album is decent, but it's kind of forgettable and vague considering how divisive Sunn O))) can be, and how modern Ulver gets fan foaming at the mouth.

  It is bored to me. I prefer Perdition City, Shadows of the sun, Teaching in silence... But not this work.:nogood:
