Steeped in an aura of mesmerizing drone and atmospheric heft, “Altar” stands as a testament to the seamless collaboration between the sonic titans SUNN O))) and BORIS. This yellow edition, reminiscent of a sun obscured by a heavy mist, encapsulates the luminous yet dense soundscapes the album presents. The tracks are an exploration of the outer realms of musical extremity, where the boundaries of drone, doom, and ambient music are pushed and intertwined. “Altar” is not merely an album—it’s a transcendental experience, inviting listeners into a realm where sound takes on a palpable, almost tangible form. A must-have for those who appreciate the profound depths of experimental music.
