Earth: Hex: Or Printing In The Infernal Method
Buy! - (Southern Lord)
Few bands have the distinction of inventing their own genre of music, and Earth is one of them. They pretty much pioneered the genre of drone metal. Formed in Olympia, WA in 1990, they were signed to Sub Pop on and off in their early career. They have influenced a host of new doom metal bands including Sunn 0))), Sleep and Boris. This newest record ditches the distortion for a clean, Neil Young's-Deadman-Soundtrack-esq sound. Playing slow never sounded so good. 12/8/2005 - Rachel
