josedenoche Heavenly and blissful drone music to fully surrender into the divine presence of the Godhead, The Lord along with Petra Haden's angelical voice brings us the mystical experience in this musical mantra where we're driven in celestial ecstasy and joyful wanderlust amidst the holiness of each song that compels to worship creation with the sound of the sacred spheres. Pure musical beauty to leave you gleeming in magnificent awe. Favorite track: What Lies Behind Us Lies Buried Because It is Dead.

Kirk Gauthier Of course there are going to be shades of SUNN O))) from the mighty Greg Anderson, but there is a different feel to The Lord that is quite pleasing. The addition of Petra Haden’s voice adds a haunting beauty to these songs that reminds me of “Monoliths and Dimensions,” which is among my favorite SUNN O))) albums. There is a devotional quality to these songs that give it a more spiritual feel, like a religious experience for your ears. Highly recommended. Favorite track: What Lies Behind Us Lies Buried Because It is Dead.

about

Devotional is a new collaborative album with vocalist and violinist Petra Haden, who first worked with Anderson during his time in Goatsnake, as well as on the second SUNN O))) studio album, ØØ Void.

Devotional is a rapturous and heady offering of wordless vocalizations, droning guitars, and heaviness explored in unexpected and intoxicating ways. Inspirations came from deep listening to Indian classical music, as well as a fascinating look at the chaotic and unbelievable life of Ma Anand Sheela and the Rajneesh community.

Through a haze of incense, flowing robes, and secret mantras, Haden's voice rings out over constant drones in ecstatic chants throughout this musical investigation into the myriad of ways in which worship can lure and intoxicate. This is a journey that Haden and Anderson go on together, the guitar and vocals combined like the call and response of a guru and their congregation. Greg Anderson comments on the album, "I'm extremely happy with the recordings we made together. Petra's vocals bring a whole new dimension to the heaviness."

Petra Haden comments, “It was so much fun getting to play and sing on SUNN O)))’s album ØØ Void. 20 years later, I’m on stage with them at The Mayan Theater in Los Angeles singing and playing on the encore. I was in heaven! After the show, Greg and I talked about working on more music together. When I heard his ideas, I already had melodies in my head. I recorded some ideas at home and it developed from there. Greg is a really deep listener and he’s so much fun to work with. Getting to collaborate with Greg reminds me why I love to sing and improvise. I feel free and happy. That’s what music is all about."

Seductive and hypnotic, Devotional is an intriguing new chapter in The Lord’s exploration of heavy music.
