Earth + Holy Sons

Sunn O))) did a major service to Earth (the band) by name-checking the veteran Seattle outfit constantly—not to mention reviving its monolithic sound—as it ascended the avant-metal ranks. Earth capitalized on the favor by reemerging in an entirely overhauled guise, the latest example of which is last year's tenth studio LP, Primitive and Deadly, full of hazy, slo-mo twang doom, and recorded with an expanded lineup including Sunn O)))'s own Bill Herzog on bass and Built to Spill's Brett Netson on guitar. Pioneering genre-crossing futurists Holy Sons opens this Saint Vitus show.
