E A R T H

Earth, originally from Seattle, visited the South Hemisphere a few weeks ago and will embark on a new tour within the next few weeks, crossing Europe and most of the States to present their new album ‘Primitive and Deadly’.

Earth belongs to a very niche and purist instrumental noise-metal, post-rock with a loyal following. Their music is determined by Dylan Carlson’s powerful and extremely defined guitar riffs that build up the structure of the song ad loop for a few minutes, adding details and elements of variation that enrich the listening experience, while the solid rhythm section of the band keeps the audience in a sort of trance that last –in some cases- for a few songs or good fifteen minutes..

Good musicianship combined with a admirable simplicity on stage will be a quite accurate summary of their shows. They stand up for a very specific vision of what music should be. It may not be the most mainstream style -and it may never be-, however they do what they do, and they do it extremely well.

Whether you belong to their loyal following or not, their music is worth a good listen, perhaps swinging by one of their shows and experiencing an hour of getting lost in the many shades, hints, and hues that guitar riff can breathe out.

Thanks for reading
