The drone of Earth


Last Sunday I went to see Seattle band Earth at the Corner Hotel. The band, characterized complex and lengthy instrumental passages, can be partially classified –unfairly in my opinion- in the ‘metal’ category, but i would say that the most interesting of the many labels that apply to them - is ‘drone’.

At the Corner we possibly saw more of the instrumental harmonic bit –‘post rock’- that connects them to bands such as Mono or Mogwai and a little bit less of the 'drone' side. Still enjoyable, it was a good gig.

If you feel curious about the 'drone’ sound, check 2007 release of Burning Star Core titled ‘Operator Dead Post Abandoned’, an overwhelming sequence of a thick suffocating noise, pretty at times and narcotic for the rest of the album.

Thanks for reading.
