Also this week, Ninja Tune announced an upcoming 12″ The Bug Vs Earth, to be released in December, featuring two tracks, “Boa” & “Cold“, that see Dylan’s signature guitar sound sitting seamlessly with some of Kevin’s most destructively heady bass explorations.

SOME PRAISE FOR PRIMITIVE AND DEADLY

“The most accessible and rounded album yet, With lyrics come more linear structures, but this remains snugly Earth with customary power and unhurried, circular riffs. A presence as forceful as Lanegan could distract, but his growl merges with the whole – Qazi’s declamation is otherworldly. An Earth reborn, then.” – 4 STAR MOJO REVIEW

“If altered states and slow-motion meditation are your thing, Earth remain the somnambulant motherlode.”
– GUARDIAN METAL PLAYLIST, AND LISTED AS ONE RECORD YOU MUST HEAR THIS WEEK

“This is as close as Earth have ever come to perfection.” – ROCK A ROLLA

“Painful slowness has never sounded so powerful.” – 4K KERRANG!

“Dylan has taken his music into fresh but subtly familiar territory, notching up the dominance of overdriven guitars and bringing transcendental vocal mantras into the resultant slow-motion melee…As with all Earth records, you could easily lose yourself forever in this somnambulant cloud of sound, but as if to prove its ageless value, the spirit of Black Sabbath is on hand throughout to offer reassuring spectral guidance. The drone live: vital and free.” – 8/10 METAL HAMMER REVIEW

“A surprisingly natural addition to the band’s discography – and a thoroughly enjoyable one.” – 4 STAR REVIEW RECORD COLLECTOR

“The rich textures and Carlson’s expressive leads provide plenty to luxuriate in.” – WIRE

“Primitive and Deadly is the latest in a recent suite of triumphs – by this point Earth are masters of their game, making music that’s bigger and more powerful than anything mere mortals should be able to create.” – 8/10 DROWNED IN SOUND

“This is a properly heavy fare, a sound utterly bereft of light yet still richly, intensely, rewardingly musical that makes the evil posturing of the extreme metal posse seem even more daft. 25 years in the business, and Earth keep improving; you can’t say that about many bands.” – 8.5/10 THE LINE OF BEST FIT

“A truly stunning piece of work, and one which ranks easily amongst their best work to date, although such is the quality of the musicianship involved, you wouldn’t bet against them bettering it next time round. Each of the six tracks on here are very different but they all belong together and work well as a whole. In lesser hands some of the more repetitive tracks could end up being torturous, but each song flows naturally and never threatens to become dull. Another excellent addition to an already impressive catalogue.”
–  9/10 THIS IS NOT A SCENE

“Primitive & Deadly is an awe-inspiring record and will hopefully bring more people to Earth’s unique, powerful music. It’s a diverse, satisfying collection that looks to the future with an always respectful nod to the past. Expertly combing elements of dark and light, Primitive & Deadly is a rich and engrossing experience”  – 10/10 SOUNDBLAB
