Tales From Bandcamp: Primitive and Deady by Earth

a2338655344_10Slow, plodding, methodical, droning doom is rarely associated with adjectives like relaxing, uplifting, and beautiful, yet long time trio Earth pull it off again and again as they push the boundaries of the doom genre on each album.  While their last pair of releases were a tad lackluster compared to the monumental slab of instrumental drone/doom that is known as The Bees Made Honey in the Lion’s Skull, they have just released one hell of a shattering record that soars the band to new heights.

Now with the inclusion of vocals in their still very instrumental affairs, Earth have really created their most engaging record to date.  For music this thick and viscous, I shouldn’t be so sucked in, yet I am.  I get this heavy White Album-era Beatles vibe throughout the whole thing, especially on the song ‘From the Zodiacal Light’, which really adds a unique flavor to the music.

If you are looking for some great zone-out/meditation metal this record should be right up your alley.  Give it a listen and let us know what you think.  Enjoy!! Peace Love and Metal!!!!!
