CRITIC REVIEWS

The Line of Best Fit

Based on an overnight jam the two groups indulged in after Sunn O)))’s show at Oslo’s Oya festival in August 2008, Terrestrials sounds surprisingly cohesive considering the project’s improvised roots and slow development.

AllMusic

Those who enjoyed Monoliths & Dimensions should find Terrestrials accomplished, disciplined and, in its way, heavy as hell. It perfectly reflects both Sunn 0)))'s impenetrably emotional dark heart and Ulver's expertly crafted senses of drama and dynamic.

Drowned in Sound

This might be the closest you can get to ‘new age’ while remaining a heavily-tattooed riff-worshipper.

Terrestrials is an immersive journey, chock-full of amplified bass swells, cinematic grandeur, and winding melodies to complement the howling winds and other environmental tie-ins found on the record. However, the coupling of Sunn O))) and Ulver, two juggernauts in their own right, doesn't bring anything terribly exciting to the masses.
