Godfathers of doom, Earth play Birmingham this Sunday 4th April at Hare & Hounds, Birmingham.
You may have guessed that Earth named themselves after Black Sabbath, Earth being Sabbath’s original name. Dylan Carson of the band has paid Home of Metal recognition in the past. In a recent Pitchfork interview he cites Born Again as a key album in his musical development and goes on to say: “Sabbath is from Birmingham, England and Tony Iommi supposedly came to a festival we played there once, but I didn’t actually see him. The two women who put on that festival are always trying to get the Birmingham City Council to recognize that it’s the city of heavy metal and put up a plaque or a statue to acknowledge it.”
We’ll be sure to update him on our progress on Sunday!
