SUN WORSHIP "elder giants" LP
Whether in the frozen Scandinavian forests or in the sprawling urbanity of Neukölln, desolation will be desolation. Berlin outfit SUN WORSHIP channels this desolation into an icy spear of harsh beauty. The result is a kind of black metal without pretense or theatrics, a sonic landscape both stripped and dense, perceived through post-punk schooled eyes and reduced to its bare essentials. The music of SUN WORSHIP is both a distant formal aesthetic homage to the era that first allowed for a spiritual experience of the genre as well a timeless catharsis through vehemence, momentum and volume.
