O’Malley, who has been residing in Paris for the past eight years, originally planned to release the album in early 2016, but changed his plans following the November Paris Attacks. The new album was supposed to be part of an upcoming trilogy of live recordings to be released next year, but O’Malley hoped that the songs on his record could offer a small sense of solace for the few hundred who hear them. Fans can read O’Malley’s full statement here. All profits from Fuck Fundamentalist Pigs will be donated to the French Red Cross.
Stephen O'Malley (sometimes referred to as SOMA) is a guitarist, producer, composer, and visual artist from Seattle, Washington who has conceptualized and participated in numerous drone doom, death/doom, and experimental music groups, most notably Sunn O))). O'Malley is a founding member of several groups including Sunn O))) (1998–present), Burning Witch (1995–1998), KTL (2005–present), and Khanate (2000–2006).
The album, titled Fuck Fundamentalist Pigs captures live recordings from a series of shows O’Malley played in Norway immediately following the Charlie Hebdo terrorist attacks in Paris (O’Malley’s home of eight years) last January. The album is the first part of a trilogy that was intended to come out throughout 2016, but the guitarist pushed for this first volume’s early release after the terrorist attacks on Paris, last month. All profits from the album will go to the French Red Cross.

F ck Fundamentalist Pigs is Stephen O’Malley’s crushing, personal and intensely emotive retort to the fascists and fundamentalists who undermine his and our sense of personal liberty and freedom, particularly in the wake of attacks suffered by Charlie Hebdo magazine and the residents of Paris during late 2015, and the countless poor souls who’ve suffered in the Middle East, Kenya. To the facist & fundamentalist movements. To the absurding of the worst sides of monotheistic belief systems. And not only the perpetrators behind these events but also on other sides including the reactive and opportunistic.
O’Malley presently resides in Paris, and in a press release, he notes that this collection of recordings came about in response to the Charlie Hebdo attacks earlier this year. It’s clear that as an experimental guitar player I have absolutely no political power (or even ability to articulate in those forms), He says. But it’s important to take the opportunity to say ‘fuck you’ in these situations.
