Boomkat Product Review:
Released in their complete form for the very first time, this disc collects in their entirety the 1990 Smegma Studios sessions which constituted the recorded debut of legendary drone-metal pioneers Earth. Combining material that was previously scattered between the Extra Capsular Extractions EP and Sunn Amps And Smashed Guitar, this release has been given the care and attention it deserves with liner notes penned by the band's own Dylan Carson with exclusive Simon Fowler artwork housed in a Stephen O'Malley-designed package. You can hear this massively influential band drawing up its stylistic template on these tracks, grinding through spectacularly slow-moving minimalist riffs, as heard on the sludgy Sabbath-isms of 'Geometry Of Murder' and the crushing, epic sustains of 'Ouroboros Is Broken', while industrial-style drums rear up during 'German Dental Work', the like of which could have been lifted from one of Swans' grizzlier moments. A definitive account of Earth's doomy beginnings, this new Southern Lord edition is essential listening for anyone disposed toward the alternative side of heavy music.
