Is it their BWWWWWWWWOOOOOOOOOOOOOMMMMMMMMMMM-iest yet?

A few months ago, when "Life Metal" was released, Greg Anderson warned us about the release of this "Pyroclasts". As a reminder, "Pyroclasts" is not a real Sunn O))) album, it was not planned, and was not composed...

I love Sunn 0))
I really do but this just feels very uninspired and just blends it with one another

I never liked Sunn O))) with all the material I've heard from them but now I kinda enjoyed this. Not an AOTY or The Decade or anything like that, this album is just fairly decent.

Again, Life Metal without the homicide.
