...drone rockers Earth, led by the inimitable Dylan Karlson, release the follow-up to their ‘Angels of Darkness, Demons of light’ two-parter.

If you aren’t aware of Earth, or drone rock/drone metal, imagine the sparse, plodding desert rock of the likes of Kyuss, made three times slower and three times more musically sparse. Normally devoid of vocals, its the soundtrack of the desert, maybe the moon, basically somewhere where there’s very little going on.

That is until now, for with ‘Primitive’, Earth have changed – at least from their recent output. One is tempted to say dramatically, but that would be a rather misleading adjective for a band this megalithically slow.

The changes are threefold. Firstly, ‘Primitive is far more calculated and musically precise than ‘Angels’ parts one and two. In fact one could say it’s far more musical, period. Whereas Angels part two was mostly jammed, ‘Primitive’ feels more organised and focused.

Secondly, its heavy. Recent Earth work had an implied heaviness due to its metal-like key and chord changes and its bleak atmosphere, but ‘Primitive’ is just plain heavy. Crushingly so at times.

And finally...you may wish to take a seat before reading this...three of the tracks have vocals!

All of wish makes one wonder whether Karlson and co have perhaps bitten off more than they can chew? Well, no, because ‘Primitive’ is for the most part, a superb album.

The two instrumental tracks ‘Torn by the fox of the crescent moon’, and ‘Even hell has its heroes’ are two of the best tracks Earth have ever written. Thundering, chugging power chords repeat and intertwine to mesmeric effect, creating a dizzying epic soundscape.

Fine at the right moment, but not a classic. I found the 'darkness and light' albums from a couple of years ago more rewarding and they're a better place to start if you're wanting to explore this band.

great album,carrying on from where "the bees made honey in the lion's skull" left off and tracks with guests on vocals, in this new direction from the drone masters

Not really what I was expecting, which was Drone-Heavy Metal, but instead you hear a slow, laid back 1970’s style rock album (Sabbath being an obvious influence).
But the songs are well crafted & complex; with Dylan Carlson bringing a fresh feel to the rock genre. Interesting Mark Lanegan's vocals are sung in a different melody to the music, which gives a fascinating tension within the tracks.
So a engaging rock album, I just thought it would be a little more of a challenging listen.
