Band : Sunn O))) & Boris present Altar
Venue : Kutshers Country Club (ATP New York)
Town (country) : Monticello, NY (USA)
Date : September 5th 2010
Grade : 5/5
Comments : One of the most extreme shows I have ever seen, louder than My Bloody Valentine and Brighter Death Now put together. The extreme use of smoke machines transformed the room into a version of John Carpenter's The Fog while the infrabass made my whole body vibrate. This was only the second time that Sunn O))) and Boris performed Altar live and their individual sounds melded together into a single huge drone. The presence of Jesse Sykes brought a bit of light to this dark mass before taking us even deeper into the core of the earth. A brutal and yet beautiful experience to conclude this year's ATP. Woww.
