Monoliths & Dimensions is the latest album of the refrigerator-duo Sunn O))) consisting of doom veterans Stephen O'Malley and Greg Anderson.
Jokes aside, this is by far Sunn O))) most accessible and in my opinion their greatest album.
They've nearly abandoned the strictly bass/guitar drone doom formula and incorporated other elements such as choirs and classical instrumentation.
At first this sounds like their old stuff; droning mindbendingly low drone doom riffs with Attila Csihar as their vocalist/gibberish mumbler. But as you progress through the album, you realize that they've changed their style, most notably on the last song, which has close to none of the old drone doom elements.
So check it out and be amazed.
