sample the album:
"Blood of the Earth is a studio recording of unearthly urgency. The music, propelled forward at full-speed by duel drummers Marc Edwards and Weasel Walter, is energetic, spiky, harsh and articulate Free Jazz for the modern age. The other members rounding out this powerful sextet include Darius Jones (alto saxophone), Forbes Graham (trumpet), Elliott Levin (tenor saxophone and flute) and Adam Lane (bass). Recorded in Brooklyn, NY in November 2009 by Colin Marston (Krallice, Behold...the Arctopus, Gorguts, Dysrhythmia), Blood of the Earth is a crystal clear document of instrumental heaviness which will blow away fans of the Albert Ayler/Cecil Taylor/Milford Graves/Peter Brotzmann/FMP/ESP/BYG schools of total energy music!"-ugExplode
