EARTH
A BUREAUCRATIC DESIRE FOR EXTRA-CAPSULAR EXTRACTION
SOUTHERN LORD

Earth’s auspicious debut has been re-released thanks to the kind folks over at Southern Lord, who restored the collection of tracks once released as two separate parts into its seven-track intended from and renamed it A BUREAUCRATIC DESIRE FOR EXTRA-CAPSULAR EXTRACTION. Delving back into the band’s formative years when the group employed a heavier and dirtier lineage akin to its Pacific Northwestern upbringing, this reissue illuminates the importance this groundbreaking squad has had on the modern underground metal realm, as the redundant cryptic drone heard on cuts like “German Dental Work” still manages to feel as oppressive and foreboding as it did twenty years ago while guest spots by a young Kurt Cobain and full-time contributions by Joe Preston help to solidify the legacy this trailblazing drone/doom metal has created.
