Concert Reviews

Earth at The Marquis Theater, 11/21/12


Near the end of Earth's set, Dylan Carlson said, "This is the first song I ever wrote for Earth. It's called 'The Ouroboros is Broken.'" This probably came as a surprise to a lot of people because it is inarguably one of Earth's classic songs. The doom-laden, clipped guitar riff in the beginning of this live version progressed into that drawn out, shifting, sprawling, colossus of a song that evolves slowly and surely through distinct movements before coming to a crushing end. Steve Moore played his trombone instead of filling in the keyboard parts for an even more dreamy yet menacing treatment.
