Earth In-depth Biography

Earth's} drone-heavy experimentation is largely the result of its one lasting member, guitarist Dylan Carlson}. The band was originally formed in 1990 in Olympia, Washington, by Carlson}, Slim Moon} (who later founded the Kill Rock Stars label) and Greg Babior}. Moon} and Babior} left soon after, and were replaced by Joe Preston}. Earth} played a few live shows and then recorded some material with Mike Lastra}. After opening up for L7} in Seattle, the group was approached by Sub Pop Records, which released the recordings in 1991 as Extra-Capsular Extractions}. The following year, Carlson} and Preston} recorded Earth 2} with producer Stewart Hallerman}, but Preston} left soon after the album's release. Sub Pop was unhappy with Earth's} lackadaisical recording tendencies, and the label pulled the plug on 1993 sessions for the third album. Recording resumed the following year with producer Ian Dickson} (who would become a permanent member just one year later), engineer Scott Benson} and drummer Rick Cambern} -- Phase 3} was finally released in April 1995. A live album taken from a Blast First label concert was released the same year as Sunn Amps and Smashed Guitars}. Sub Pop surprisingly re-signed Earth} for three more albums early in 1996, and Carlson} recorded a new album, Pentastar: In the Style of Demons}. The album showed a more stabilized band, with the addition of guitarist Shawn McElligot} and drummer Mike McDaniels}. After a small series of live performances following the release, Earth} quietly disbanded with virtually no public acknowledgement of the split. A live album appeared in 2000, followed the next year by a series of demos (one which includes another vocal from the deceased Cobain}) which were released with a CD version of the Sunn Amps} EP. An Earth} video titled A Bureaucratic Desire for Revenge} was also available from Sub Pop. Earth} returned in 2002 for a series of live shows in the U.S. and Europe, this time as a two-piece with Carlson} and drummer Adrienne Davies}. That lineup was featured on 2005's Living in the Gleam of an Unsheathed Sword}. The album was recorded live, with its title cut lasting nearly an hour. Earth returned that September with the more ambitious Hex: Or Printing in the Infernal Method,} which suggested the sound of a drone metal band covering Giant Sand} or Scenic}. ~ John Bush, All Music Guide
