Earth is an American rock band based in Olympia, Washington, formed in 1989 and led by the guitarist Dylan Carlson. Earth's music is nearly all instrumental and can be divided into two distinct stages. Their early work is characterized by distortion, droning, minimalism and lengthy, repetitive song structures. Owing to their 1993 debut album Earth 2, Earth is recognized as a pioneer of drone metal. The band resurfaced in the early 2000s, with their later output reducing the distortion and incorporating elements of country, jazz rock, and folk.
