thenor - Betimes Black Cloudmasses
Trio of Stephen O’Malley (Sunn0))))), Daniel O’Sullivan (Guapo), and Vincent de Roguin (Shora). Taking its title from The Iliad, the music here is much more open and subtle than you might expect from such a line-up. The tracks float along in an atmospheric way, where deliberate scene changes highlight O’Sullivan’s carefully placed Fender Rhodes bombs, de Roguin’s organ, and O’Malley’s guitar. These are no tossed off improvisations or ‘side-project’ orphans. Cover is hand-printed by Alan Sherry/SIWA.
