As I said earlier, "there's no drums". I've only listened to this once, sadly. At the time we were doing that, the CD was like 75 minutes long, and we wanted to fill the entire CD. Earth 2 - Special Low Frequency Version (Sometimes known simply as Earth 2) is the first full-length studio album by Washington drone band Earth.Released in 1993 via Sub Pop Records (SP185) it has been hailed as a seminal album in the development of drone metal and drone in general (Influencing acts such as Joe Preston, Sunn O))), Boris and Pelican among others. Like sweltering heat. Earth’s first album is a musical milestone and served as a blueprint for drone music. Pay the proper respect and you will be rewarded well! Earth - Earth 2: Special Low Frequency Version review: If you can imagine Black Sabbath without drums and vocals, while the riffs are being played much slower, heavier and lower and are repeated over and over again, then you’ll get a good picture of this album. For starters it's one of the very first drone metal albums ever released along with the Melvins' Lysol, coupled with the fact that it was a significant influence on Sunn O))), another beloved hipster metal band. If Extra-Capsular Extraction was being forced into a hole then Earth 2 is emerging out the other side, to drift into the infinite empty blackness of some other universe. The show was canceled after one season of 21 episodes. The guitar and bass are full on wall of sound, no definition just immersion. Earth is one of these obvious examples and Earth 2 is a hipster metal staple. Sure, I must grudgingly acknowledge that this was sort of inventive at the time in the same way Andy Warhol making Sleep, a film that's just a guy sleeping for five hours, was in the 60s, though both are equally pointless wastes of time. The 'songs' (I hate that word in this context) don't follow a particular pattern either - one guitar will play some superslow riffs, repeat 'em a few times, while the other guitar and bass (in key) play something else, maybe something a little more thumpy and feedback-harboring. This album is completely guitar-driven. I grabbed a bunch of stuff when I worked there, and a series of meditational cassettes Atlantic Records did in the '70s caught my eye. ", Alan Licht, in his third list of minimalist classics, wrote "Unlike a lot of more recent noise underground stuff, which (to me) is relatively factorable, this is technically boggling drone music--the sustain is achieved not just with distortion but through overdubbing, and there's clean guitars in there too--even on headphones it's hard to tell what the fuck they're really doing. ). I'm currently playing the Ultimate World Map from EE Heavens and even though i 've turned every option to its lowest I'm still getting lag about 1 hour into it. How they got the note to sustain throughout the whole song is absolutely beyond me, but god damn it, I'd love to be able to do that. Sounds dull, yes? Imagine it stretched out to over a minute long. I recommend waiting for the summer; then going for a long walk in the street under the sun.

It lasts throughout the whole thing, while Joe Burns plays percussion at certain times (not like you would think, though. It’s because most first time drone / doom listeners do not understand that drone / doom should not really be listened to in the same manner as the more “conventional” sub-genre’s of extreme metal. Within the three tracks, the psychedelic and doomy guitar riffs of Dylan Carlson are layered over Dave Harwell's heavy and crushing bass with each song transitioning into one another. The last track, Like gold and faceted is the longest and arguably the most inaccessible piece on Earth 2. It went along with a series of Medical records that I had. Earth could be considered one of the most important bands in musical history. Earth 2: Special Low Frequency consists of three long sections that seamlessly flow into each other. "There were a couple of ideas. One imagines the entire history of the Earth itself, glaciers moving, continents drifting, mountains rising and then disappearing into dust, entire civilizations coming and going, all ultimately to reach oblivion in the far distant future. I feel the need to stress that this is just as minimal and detail-free as the cover art, and I'm really starting to think I might be insane because others are detecting a nuance which is completely absent to me. Along with plenty of feedback, this will make the listener feel like if they're tripped out or stoned. "Seven Angels" is the closest anything on the album comes to an actual song, with a surprisingly fast riff and even a "bridge" of sorts. However, I've written over half of this review so far listening to some dope-ass nu-metal, and I'm pretty sure that if I wanted to, I could write about this album entirely from my relatively stale memory of it (keep in mind I usually listen to this album in the background instead of trying to actively focus on it) and my review would still be factually accurate, because I really can't stress how little actually goes on throughout this album's 73-minute length. The album is not only meditative, but perhaps the most deserving of the name "Earth" of any piece of music ever made. The riffs are so slow they sound like tectonic plate movement - this sounds much like the best parts of a band like Sunn O))), about 8 years earlier, and leaving out all the uselessness of a band like Sunn O))) too. A soft drum- beat heralds the start of "Like gold and faceted" which is a gently and mellow 30-minute tone / drone piece - though I guess those really long solid blocks of sound could give some people headaches! Album Rating: 4.5Great description using the Black Sabbath riff. You just imagined the first song on this album. "Seven Angels" could be a proper doom metal song with the addition of some sparse drumming and vocals, because there are actually enough notes being played to form a riff and there is even some palm-muted crunching to be heard. Teeth of lions rule the divine rolls on majestically, using long droning ambient sections drenched in shimmering feedback amongst passages of more doom metal influenced slow, yet still drone laden guitar riffing.
