SunnO))), if the name wasn't clue enough, has not made many efforts to conform to the mainstream, but their San Francisco performance at the Mezzanine has been described as anything from mind blowing to genre generating. The band churned out a bizarre fusion of genre's that probably should have failed but defied all reason and turned into something remarkable.

If you've never been to one, a SunnO))) performance is a thing. More of a movable feast with two fixed leaders than a proper band, every SunnO))) show is essentially the same: two guys with guitars in druid robes pushing a massive backline of amplifiers with rumbling, detuned chords unleashed at molasses-slow tempos. It's an overwhelming experience: sound grows to monstrous proportions, taking on physical characteristics as it massages your skin and slows your thought process like a cannabinoid. Although most clearly related to heavy metal and avant-garde noise, the spectacle is a noteworthy modern phenomenon that anyone of sound mind and body ought to experience once.
