• EARTH - The Bees Made Honey In The Lion's Skull 2XLP
SOUTHERN LORD RECORDS
The Bees Made Honey in the Lion's Kkull a.k.a the fifth album by the mainly instrumental band called Earth. Earth is a magnificent band originating from the United States and formed in 1990. They are pioneers in the genre of drone/doom. That The Bees Made Honey In The Lion’s Skull takes its name from the Biblical tale of Samson and Delilah seems strangely appropriate; after all, there is something redemptive about the story of Earth. The story, really, is that of Dylan Carlson, a Seattle guitarist who released a string of thick, extraordinarily heavy, sometimes almost featureless instrumental drone records throughout the late ‘90s.
