Sunn O))) - Dømkirke (2008)
Sunn O))) are known for their live performances and Dømkirke really accentuates their ability to make a great live album. The album has the perfect atmosphere with the live performance taking place in a cathedral with very operatic Gregorian chants coming from Attila Csihar, of Mayhem fame. The background organ in Why Dost Thou Hide Thyself in Clouds is an incredible number, competing with Attila's vocals at every note, they come together with total symbiosis. Much of the album takes on very intense atmospheric roles with a large mount of feedback noise, ridden with doomy operatic chants that reach several climaxes throughout the album. This is definitely a release from Sunn that you don't want to miss out on.
