Let the internet brew for long enough and magical things happen.

Someone out there has gone and mashed up John Coltrane’s ‘Mars’ with Sunn O)))’s ‘Rabbit’s Revenge’, and it makes perfect sense. Vaguely recalling the heavyweight avant-skronk of Norwegian trio The Thing, it’s a glorious splicing of the jazz saxophonist at his most free and experimental with the trench-scraping gloom of Seattle’s drone metal royalty.

Sunn O)))’s excellent new album Kannon dropped in December, a few months after the band uploaded dozens of concert bootlegs to Bandcamp. Check out band member Stephen O’Malley’s FACT mix.
