In the mid-90’s, in the cold, bleak north of Seattle, Washington, two friends in their mid-20’s, Greg Anderson and Stephen O Malley, were wading deep in the behemoth dirge of the Melvins, and melting into Earth‘s expansive, glacial-paced, guitar-based soundscapes, heavily influenced by these sounds. Greg and Stephen were playing together in Thorr’s Hammer and Burning Witch, and tread their own paths after the demise of those bands, only to be brought back together in Los Angeles in 1998. In a new city, at the dawn of a new decade, the two went on to form a new band sunn O))) and launch Southern Lord Recordings with the vision of releasing recordings of these works.
