Drone-metal band Sunn O))) first approached vocalist and all-around iconoclast Scott Walker back in 2009; it wasn’t until this year that the studio finally beckoned. Stephen O’Malley and Greg Anderson focus more on exploring deep drone textures and bass frequencies rather than using the bass as an instrument, but what a journey: From the downright-creepy epic “Herod 2014” to the ironically titled “Lullaby,” Soused shimmers with dark operatic undertones galore.
