Sunn O)))

Khyam Allami with Vasilis Sarikis (7/10)
Start 20:30 / End 21:05
Khyam Allami, professor of ethnomusicology in London, supported by Vasilis Sakiris opened the last evening of the CTM. 13 festival. The duo played ethnic music with lute and percussions that reminded me to warm mediterranean shores. There was something sad and melancholy in what they played, therefore even if this kind of music is pretty far away from the headliner offer, I think it was a proper opening show preparing us for hell on stage.

SUNN O))) (8/10)
Start 21:45 / End 23:25
I’ve already seen Sunn O))) live more than one year ago in Dresden, so I knew what I was going to face: pain. I mean both mentally and physically. Their doom drone flow with devastating Attila’s whispers, screams and wails can easily tear you apart. You have two ways to defend yourself: staying at home or putting ear taps in. Only after 30 min Attila came to the stage: the show was surrounded from the beginning to the end by a thick artificial fog that it was impossible to see more than slowly moving hooded shadows but so it should be. The foggy atmosphere, the extreme low-frequencies, the loud volume, the slowness of the riffs bring you to another mystical world where there´s no chance to escape. I stopped vibrating just some minutes ago…
