TERRIFYING! That is how i would describe this latest Sunn 0))) album. _Black One_ is heavy-as-fkk droning post-metal born of a lost world's hellbound nightmares. It rumbles and churns with colossal thunder and glistens with coiling blades of blackened electricity, and it will test your force of will -- after an hour or so when the album ends, you may doubt that your sanity is still with you. "Cry of the Weeper" is my favorite track -- the screaming will haunt me forever. You too will be forever changed by this album -- you won't realize it at first, but someday, down the road, the order with which you perceive reality will crumble. It may begin with a subtle, barely perceptible change, but once it begins and it becomes known to you, it will devour all you known in its obsessive entropy of chaos and disharmony. To me, that's AWESOME. Warning: avoid this album if you are at the pedestrian stages of requiring melody to be reached by music.
