Earth require little introduction for fans of drone. Their debut album has become so legendary in the scene that even Stephen O'Malley (a legend in his own right) was inspired to start a project named after one of its tracks. However, the band demonstrated soon after that they were never content to sit in this one style, and have been consistently reinventing themselves ever since. 2014's Primitive And Deadly only continues this trend, further proving that Earth aren't running out of the tricks in their hat anytime soon.

  "Primitive And Deadly, Earth's tenth studio collection, Carlson and long term foil, drummer Adrienne Davies, manage to pull off the trick of completing an Ouroborean creative cycle, 25 years in the making.

Some familiar faces on Primitive And Deadly: Bassist Bill Herzog (Sunn O))), Joel RL Phelps, Jesse Sykes And The Sweet Hereafter), additional layers of guitar from Brett Netson (Built To Spill, Caustic Resin) and Jodie Cox (Narrows).

But perhaps the largest left turn on Primitive And Deadly though, is prominence of guest vocalists Mark Lanegan (Queens Of The Stone Age) and Rabia Shaheen Qazi (Rose Windows) who transform the traditionally free ranging meditations of Earth into something approaching traditional pop structures.

Available everywhere early September 2014. Vinyl pre-sales via http://www.southernlordeurope.com will be announced soon as well as some August tour dates."

Yeah, it's pretty damn sweet. Follows somewhat along the lines of the past three albums, and the addition of vocals makes the whole formula sound like some sort of obscure psychedelic rock.

  The last couple of albums have shown a bit of dip in quality so I'm hoping this one makes up for it.

  Awesome, I absolutely love everything Earth has done.

You really think so? Gotta disagree with you there man, Earth have always been one of those bands to me capable of manifesting themselves into many different forms, but none of which suck.

Joe never said that they sucked... They have jut been less great. The Bees is one of the bestest albums around. Ever. After that album they tried to develope that sound more with other structures and chello but the last two albums are not as inspired.

Nah dude, I never thought he did, I just find all their albums enjoyable and well composed, from different perspectives. Even if I may like some more than others. Anyway, I will agree that the two Angels Of Darkness, Demons Of Light albums weren't as good as The Bees, but this new album is pretty fire. Heavy psychedelic rock sound, and the guest vocalists totally enhance the mood. Review coming in a few
