50. Earth Pentastar: In the Style of Demons (1996)

There is no doubt to the musical importance of Earth — I know Sunn O is the hipsters choice for stating their interest in real music, but Earth is where it is at. Pentastar was their 3rd album and marked an introduction to a more rock orientated sound. Their “abstract” or totally non-traditional metal/drone cover is great- hinting at the Plymouth ‘Cuda and all they imply is what spoke to me when I picked this up. Alice Wheeler took the photo for this cover.
