Earth

Earth is a pioneering Drone Metal band from Olympia, Washington, that was started by Dylan Carson in 1989.

Earth laid the foundation for what would become drone music – an entire genre dedicated to slow guitar music, heavy distortion and feedback. A sound that would lead to bands like Sunn O))), Burning Witch and Teeth of Lions Rule the Divine. Earth was probably influenced by bands like the Melvins, The Swans and Black Sabbath and at a time when Grunge was popular, were pretty much alone with their own kind of sound.

When I first heard Extra-Capsular Extraction in 1991 (complete with Kurt Cobain of Nirvana), I thought, ” What the fuck is that ? It’s so cool !”. I was hooked from day 1. And even though I haven’t followed the development of Drone Metal, I still think Earth is very cool and interesting !

So turn out the lights, lay back and let the music take you into the darkness !
