Moonn is a drone/doom metal project from Poland.
Moonn was created at the beginning of 2004 at doom-metal.com forums by Bartosz Frąckowiak and Małgorzata Góraj. At first it was supposed to be a joke and the project was named Moonn D))) after a drone/doom band known as Sunn O))). However after creating the first audio piece it became not just a joke but an audio project. It was called to be a tribute to Sunn O))), which was its main influence. Months passed and other pieces came. After more than a year the project renamed itself to Moonn, removing the "D)))".
