Editor’s Note: Ben Stas has been all over the place. And things are starting to get heavy. Last weekend the Vanyaland photographer ventured up to Maine to capture Sleep’s pair of 4/20 gigs at State Theatre in Portland, and after a quick breather here in Boston shooting PUP at Royale, Stas this past weekend went down to Connecticut to experience Sunn O))) in all their colorful doom at College Street Music Hall in New Haven. The experimental Seattle group, whose very loud sonic cocktail blends drone, black metal, dark ambient, and noise rock, were in town supporting new LP Life Metal on its release date; this latest effort delivers four new tracks that clock in at length between 11:46 and 25:24. Find a stream of the record, crank it up, and scan through Stas’ full gallery below, including a few shots of the night’s opener, Papa M.
