Sunn O))) to reissue Domkirke

Sunn O))) will reissue their 2008 live album Domkirke on February 2.

The four-track, double LP was recorded at Bergen Cathedral, Norway in 2007, during the Borealis Festival.

The record features a lineup consisting of Attila Csihar, Tos Nieuwenhuizen, Lasse Marhaug, Steve Moore, Greg Anderson and Stephen O’Malley.

Sunn O))) released their latest studio album Kannon last month – and Anderson gave TeamRock an insight to how the writing process differed from 2009’s Monoliths & Dimensions.

He said: “There are no premeditated ideas. Monoliths started out similar, but was developed in a way more complicated way by bringing on extra instrumentation and embracing different musical theories and concepts.

“With Kannon there are elements of that, but it’s a little more stripped down. It’s reflective of the live shows we’ve been doing over the last four years, especially with Attila Csihar and his vocal contribution to the group.”
