Since their inception in 1993, acclaimed and admired experimental metal band Earth has made a giving their listeners some curve balls.
Starting out in more of a doom metal vein, the combo of Dylan Carlson and Adrienne Davies have given fans a plethora of different musical genres to savor.
With last year’s album “Angels of Darkness, Demons of Light 1” the band started experimenting with folk rock and cellos, which saw the band moving farther away from their doom metal past.

The latest album “Angels of Darkness, Demons of Light 2” is the second part of the series and the band is out on tour to support the album.
Mount Eerie is Phil Elverum. The 33 year-old multi-instrumentalist has played in other bands, and worked as a producer, but remains best known for this solo project, which began under the name the Microphones in 1997.
In 2003, he renamed the project Mount Eerie after returning from a trip to Norway, where he lived alone in a remote cabin for a winter. “Mount Eerie” specifically refers to the mountain on Fidalgo Island, an island an hour north of Seattle.
Regardless of the moniker, music of Elverum includes interlocking themes and is marked by his distinctive naturalist lo-fi analog sound that mixes a gentle voice with various strains of sound: spare or booming, ambitiously layered or noisy.
Ô Paon is Geneviève Castrée, a French-Canadian living in the United States. She was born in Québec City, grew up in Montréal and now she lives in Anacortes in Washington State, next to Phil Elverum.
Geneviève is also known for her other project called Woelv and for a collaborative record with “The Watery Graves of Portland”.
