2015 was a busy year for SUNN O))). Following the recent release of the triadic entity Kannon — their first full-length album since 2009’s Monoliths And Dimensions — a series of magnificent European appearances, culminating in their curation of four days at Utrecht’s Le Guess Who? festival, the band now presents the news that their live album, Dømkirke, will see dawn of day again this February.
Kannon, in its earliest incarnation, was spawned and inspired from live compositions of SUNN O))); elements of which were present at Dømkirke, Dømkirke itself was recorded at the Bergen Cathedral in Bergen, Norway during the Borealis Festival in 2007. The four-song double album was initially released in September 2008 and is available on vinyl only, with one track featuring on each side of the records. This performance features intrinsic members of SUNN O)))’s mythology, including Attila Csihar (vocals), Tos Nieuwenhuizen (Moog), Lasse Marhaug (noise), Steve Moore (organ, trombone) with Greg Anderson (guitar) and Stephen O’Malley (guitar) vitally remaining at the center of the constellation.
Dømkirke will be re-released on February 5th, 2016 on 2xLP only.
Dømkirke Track Listing:
1. Why Dost Thou Hide Thyself in Clouds?
4. Masks the Ætmospheres
Kannon is now available via Southern Lord on gatefold LP, CD and digital formats worldwide. Order through the SUNN O))) store, the Southern Lord store, and the European Southern Lord store.

“Any review of Dømkirke would be remiss without commending Southern Lord’s dedication to presenting its records as non-disposable pieces of art” – Pitchfork
“Domkirke exceeds expectations; it is an unexpectedly dynamic, labyrinthine document of texture and space, and sees Sunn O))) defend its title as one of the most prestigious (and prolific) bands of American metal.” – Consequence Of Sound
“Dømkirke still stands up far beyond many of the drone releases today.” – Sputnik Music
