Sunyata – The Great Beyond (2020); Sunnata – Burning in Heaven, Melting on Earth (2021)

Hello out there! In the immortal words of the Barenaked Ladies, it’s been…

Seven days since we got together here, at which time I had shared two albums with you by bands who coincidentally had similar-sounding names, but otherwise had little in common.

Any fan of things that are loud and heavy, but also thought-provoking, should find plenty to like with either one of these records — or hopefully both!
