Earth Phase 3: Thrones And Dominions on 2LP + Download
Earth’s career, like its music, has always been a slow, deliberate progression. Each record slightly removed from the last, a constant refinement of a singular vision. Founder Dylan Carlson has remained focused throughout on coaxing moments of strange beauty and reflection from “the riff.” Formed in Olympia, WA circa 1989, the band has experienced an ever evolving line up over the years which has included the likes of Slim Moon (Kill Rock Stars founder), Joe Preston (Melvins) and many others along the way.
After moving to Seattle and signing to Sub Pop in 1990 Carlson and Co. would release three genre defining full lengths for the label - Earth 2 (1993), Phase 3 (1995) and Pentastar (1996) - before going on a near decade hiatus. Earth's second studio effort, Phase 3: Thrones And Dominions, is another monolithic beast and landmark drone release which finds the band as Uncut notes, "Sinking further and further into one-note, time-twisting, blissed-out doom, with notes hanging heavy and long like thunder clouds on a summer night."
