The dark, droning metal of Sunn O))) must be approached with a reverence for its spiritual and aesthetic values. You don’t just listen to Sunn; you experience it. Built on repetition and atmosphere, the ambience created by Stephen O’Malley and Greg Anderson encourages introspection from its audience and a listening environment that allows such. The music of Sunn has become viable in the realms of yoga (aka Black YO)))ga) because of its visceral, transportive qualities.

Kannon carries on many of those traditions, emphasizing meditative drones across a tri-movement piece. Per the album’s press release, “Kannon” literally represents an aspect of Buddha: the “goddess of mercy” or “perceiving the sounds (or cries) of the world.” To classify Kannon as an album relegates it to the commercial framework of recorded music and economic product, demeaning some of that spiritual allure. Sunn seek to defy that consumerist inevitability, essentially creating a mixed media art project around the release of Kannon. – Consequence of Sound
