Earth : Earth 2

Imagine how you would feel if the gravity of the earth would be ten times stronger than it is now. Your feet feel as if they are stuck in ten ton concrete. Your hands constantly seem to reach towards the ground. Your shoulders feel so heavy that you feel like laughing at Jesus' painful facial expression while he is carrying something ridiculous like a cross. Even if you make the biggest effort, you can't even take a step forward. Well, if it is possible for you to imagine something like that, then you might have an idea about the sound of Earth.

Improbably slow and heavy guitar riffs and a bass vibe that sounds like an earthquake are exclusively used drenching the listener into an agonising experience, surrounding him with apocalyptic feedback sounds with a particular 'Sabbathian touch.

How can one describe this? It's not possible to speak about music, since Earth makes f.i. Winter sound like a speed metal band. Instead it is an experience of never suspected gravity forces holding you captive in their almighty power. Painfully minimalistic, threating and dark sounds hold you in their grip until you confess that nobody can beat the sound of the planet itself when it comes to heaviness and primitive power.

On this album you will find not a single voice, no drums, no keyboards, no special effects: only the pure, primitive forces of the earth making the heaviness worshipper like me bow in awe and greet the mighty planet....
