Like master painters exploring a subject over a lifetime’s work, Kevin Martin and Dylan Carlson – The Bug and Earth, respectively – have each been mining and defining their genres for more than 20 years. They’re united by an interest in – really an obsession with – heaviness. They search for, examine and break the boundaries between beautiful and ugly, minimal and maximal, light and dark – but The Bug and Earth always make music that is heavy in the most thrilling of ways.
Earth, and its founding member Carlson, first appeared in the early ’90s, and came to prominence with their Sub Pop release "Earth 2". An exercise in SLOW distorted droning minimalist riffage, their debut was the blueprint for what Dylan coined at the time "ambient metal,” – a style still being pushed forward on his latest Southern Lord release "Primitive And Deadly.”
Collaborative album between Dylan Carlson of Earth and Kevin Martin (The Bug).
Three extra tracks (including the two featuring JK Flesh) will be available as a bonus digital download with the CD and as a bonus 12” titled ‘Below Heaven’ that comes with the LP.
