Earth

http://earthsl.bandcamp.com | https://earth.bandcamp.com/ Earth's drone-heavy experimentation is largely the result of its one lasting member, guitarist Dylan Carlson. The band was originally formedin 1990 in Olympia, Washington by Carlson, Slim Moon (who later founded the Kill Rock Stars label), and Greg Babior. Moon and Babior leftsoon after and were replaced by Joe Preston. Earth played a few live shows and then recorded some material with Mike Lastra.

http://earthsl.bandcamp.com | https://earth.bandcamp.com/ Earth's drone-heavy experimentation is largely the result of its one lasting member, guitarist Dylan Carlson. The band was originally formedin 1990 in Olympia, Washington by Carlson, Slim Moon (who later founded the Kill Rock Stars label), and Greg Babior. Moon and Babior leftsoon after and were replaced by Joe Preston. Earth played a few live shows and then recorded some material with Mike Lastra. After openingfor L7 in Seattle, the group was approached by Sub Pop Records, whichreleased the recordings in 1991 as Extra-Capsular Extraction. Thefollowing year, Carlson and Preston recorded Earth 2 with producer Stewert Hallerman, but Preston left soon after the album's release. Sub Pop was unhappy with Earth's lackadaisical recording tendencies, and the label pulled the plug on 1993 sessions for the third album.Recording resumed the following year with producer Ian Dickson (who would become a permanent member justone year later), engineerScott Benson, and drummer Rick Cambern. Phase 3 was finally released in April 1995. A live album taken from a Blast First label concert wasreleased the same year as Sunn Amps and Smashed Guitars. Sub Pop surprising lyre-signed Earth for three more albums early in 1996, andCarlson recorded a new album, Pentastar: In the Style of Demons.The album showed a more stabilized band, with the addition of guitaristShawn McElligot and drummer Mike McDaniels. After a small series of live performances following the release, Earth quietly disbanded withvirtually no public acknowledgment of the split. A live album appeared in 2000, followed the next year by a series of demos (one whichincludes another vocal from the deceased Kurt Cobain) issued with a CD version of the Sunn Amps EP. An Earth video titled A BureaucraticDesire for Revenge was also available from Sub Pop. Earth returned in 2002 for a series of live shows in the U.S. and Europe, this time as a two-piece with Carlson and drummer Adrienne Davies.That lineup was featured on 2005's Living in the Gleam of an Unsheathed Sword. The album was recorded live, with its title cut lasting nearlyan hour. Earth returned that September with the more ambitious Hex: Or Printing in the Infernal Method, which suggested the sound of adrone metal band covering Giant Sand or Scenic. Hibernaculum was released in 2008, which offered four long songs, three of which originallyappeared on earlier recordings but were performed on this set via the new Earth sonic aesthetic. It also contained a DVD featuring concertand interview footage from the Hex tour. The Bees Made Honey in the Lion's Skull appeared in 2009, and took the latter-day Earth sound intoeven more hauntingly abstract and cinematic directions. In 2010, Southern Lord released A Bureaucratic Desire for Extra-Capsular Extraction, a remastered compilation containing the complete 1990Smegma Studios sessions -- their earliest recordings -- that were previously only available separately on Extra-Capsular Extraction and SunnAmps and Smashed Guitars. Carlson resumed the experiments he began back on Hex: Or Printing in the Infernal Method with the first part ofa projected trilogy entitled Angels of Darkness, Demons of Light, Vol. 1. Itwas also issued by Southern Lord in early 2011. Somewhatdifferent in approach, Angels of Darkness, Demons of Light, Vol. 2was issued by Southern Lord in early 2012. « hide
