Metal ritual overdrive

Rushing around a little unexpectedly today, so instead of a full post I’m linking to a groovy short interview with ambient metal mavens SunnO))). Maximum drone heaviosity is of course always magnificent – but what really intrigued me was the way they talk about their on-stage dress / rituals.

They seem to use them to help forget that they’re playing to an audience, and therefore enter a more creatively productive state of mind. Interesting resonances with recent ponderings below / from Mark McGuinness about the need for creativity to be unconscious of itself and its rewards to really take off.
