Dylan Carlson founded the band in 1989 along with Slim Moon and Greg Babior, taking the title Earth from Black Sabbaths original name. Carlson has remained the core of the bands line up throughout its changes. Outside of the underground music world, Carlson is perhaps best known for having been a close friend of grunge icon Kurt Cobain, as well as the person who purchased the gun that Cobain later used to commit suicide. After Earth had moved to Seattle, Cobain sang lead vocals in the song Divine and Bright, from a demo included on the re release of the live album Sunn Amps and Smashed Guitars. The drone doom band Sunn O, who formed as a tribute to Earth, were named after their collective amplifiers of choice, Sunn. Sunn O also has a song entitled Dylan Carlson on its demo. The drone doom supergroup Teeth of Lions Rule the Divine are named after the second song from Earths first full length album, Earth 2 Special Low Frequency Version. The album Angels of Dark ness, Demons of Light is out now.
