With: Papa M (David Pajo), Big Brave, Eagle Twin Sunn O))) American doom/drone metal/dark ambient band, formed as a tribute to Earth (2) (and named after this band's amplifier brand of choice). The two founding members, Stephen O'Malley & Greg Anderson, have appeared at every concert and release under the SUNN O))) moniker. They have also been (and are) active in various other bands (Thorr's Hammer, Khanate, Goatsnake, Burning Witch, KTL and others). Sunn O))) have employed a number of high-profile guests along the years such as Attila Csihar, Julian Cope, Oren Ambarchi, Merzbow, Tos Nieuwenhuizen and others. Big Brave Experimental metal band from Montreal, Québec Montreal, Quebec, Canada, three-piece BIG|BRAVE plays long-form out-rock that ventures in to different directions. In 2019 Tasy Hudson (Tasreen Hudson) played drums during the tour Eagle Twin Eagle Twin is a two-man doom metal / sludge outfit from Salt Lake City, Utah, United States. Formed in 2007 and featuring Gentry Densley (Ascend, Iceburn) on baritone guitar / vocals and Tyler Smith (Form of Rocket) on drums. Behold the debut album from Eagle Twin. Although Eagle Twin is a very new entity its helmsman: Gentry Densley is no stranger to innovative, heavy music. Densley was the musical visionary and leader of the legendary jazz, prog, rock, metal, hardcore group Iceburn (aka The Iceburn Collective) from 1991-2001. Iceburn has been called the greatest and most important musical offering from Salt Lake City since the Osmonds! Gentrys’ playing has been very influential to a lot of successful modern music groups such as: Isis, Pelican, Sunn O))) etc... In order to disseminate his majestic and mountainous riffs in the present day he enlisted massively behemoth skinsman Tyler Smith. The drums are not only a driving force that efficiently steam rolls over you they conjure a repetitious mantra that is eerily infectious. Although Iceburn was primarily a instrumental force, with Eagle Twin Gentry is much more vocal and the depth of his lyrics is endless. His vocal evocations bring to mind the hoarse rasp of Tom Waits and Howlin Wolf but possibly channeled through Tuvan throat singers. His voice, is used much like an instrument and often times creates a unique drone of its own. The riffs and music definitely have familiar reference points (Caspar Brotzmann Massaker, Earth, Sunn O))), Melvins etc...) but are crafted in a way that stands miles beyond the others.
