Dec 4, 2015This is the soundtrack to the decline of our species, once again illustrating that Sunn O))) is one of the most interesting and progressive groups in heavy music.
Dec 3, 2015Kannon, like Terrestrials, says its three-section piece in under 40 minutes, but is a more intense, punishing affair.
Dec 3, 2015The abstract, astral plane trifecta of the Kannon pieces is undeniable and one suspects that the spiritual connections these masters hold with their instruments and the frequencies which emanate are deeper and more remarkable than we could have imagined.
Dec 11, 2015ts concise nature, glossy finish and sense of clarity (something that even extends to the band photography) suggest that, as strange as it might seem, this is not a return to Sunn O)))’s metal roots, but is instead, for all intents and purposes, their pop album.
Jan 28, 2016What’s left is distinctly Sunn O))) in scope and scale, as heavy and loud and intense as anything they’ve produced.
Dec 7, 2015Even as they add unimaginable depths to a deceptively simple form, Kannon reasserts their commitment to merely existing, unapologetically out of genre and out of time.
Dec 14, 2015Ignoring the conceptual background, Kannon only achieves the very cusp of the transportative, magical power of past Sunn O))) albums.

The compositions are relatively uncomplicated, but still create a very heavy feeling. It is not an accessible or commercial record by any means, and listening to it can be a challenge for someone who isn't sure what they're getting in to, but if you give this a chance I think you will find it a worthwhile listen.… Expand
Jan 2, 2016A relatively short review for Sunn o)))'s three track long album, Kannon.
An overall less interesting project with Sunn o))) playing itA relatively short review for Sunn o)))'s three track long album, Kannon.
An overall less interesting project with Sunn o))) playing it even more safe. Less exhilarating and punishing, with the only exception being "Kannon Pt.2". It's pretty much the same sound they have been toying with for the past years without even the slightest of experimentation.
Soused, the collaborative album they did with Scott Walker in 2014, sounds like they were going the extra mile in comparison.
Kannon is quite the disappointing album. Maybe it 'll grow on me after some extra listens....if six were not enough...
