As a little teaser for the day of doom coming up tomorrow here's a fucking classic. The first LP from dronedoom originators Earth. Ever heard of speed metal? You know, motorhead, early Metallica, that kinda shit? How bout Power Violence? You know, the genre with the ridiculous, inanely ironic song titles longer than the actual songs themselves played at blinding speeds? Yeah, this album ain't that. In fact, this album is so far from that it's fucking mindblowing. This is about as slow as you can possibly get. So slow that for the vast majority of the record there's not even a discernible beat. Sunn0))), Boris, Khanate, etc etc etc. basically all copped their sound from this album. In fact, Sunn0)))'s name comes from a joke that they orbit Earth. Not funny and you already know this I know, let me feel important. Haterdick. Just listen to this if you need to get your heart rate way the fuck down.
DOOM EXTRAVAGANZA TOMORROW IN HONOR OF GOING TO ATL, BRACE YOURSELF MOTHERFUCKERS!
