Earth polarized a lot of amp-worshippers with 1993's Earth 2, an album that took doom metal to such sonic extremes that it crossed over into a kind of rumbling serenity. Twelve years later, they caused another upset with Hex; Or Printing in the Infernal Method, which swapped the full-stack thunder of their early years with a Bakersfield-twang death march. Earth's latest album might not be as pivotal as the aforementioned records, but Primitive and Deadly is still a curveball in the Earth canon. The languid narcotic tempos are still in full effect, but guitarist Dylan Carlson has combined the tranquilized metal of Earth 2 with the nuance and space of Hex, resulting in a heavy minimalist psych record that may be their most accessible work to date.
