Earth - Descent to the Zenith

Seattle stoner minimalist outfit Earth has apparently been together for upwards 20 years and it shows in their composure. Their so called "metal" is drawn out, teeming with appropriate cello pieces and guitar hooks that are catchier than a baseball player pumped full of steroids. It honestly sounds a lot closer to fundamental rock n' roll than any metal I've ever heard and reminds more of Thee Silver Mt. Zion Memorial Orchestra Band than anything else I can think of. Their first full-length release in over three years will drop sometime in February via Southern Lord Records. I've seen a lot of buzz going around about this one, so watch out for it. Cool artwork too.
