Formed in 2005, the whole raison d’etre behind Earthless is the distorted, elongated mind-journey that comes trucking out of the industrial space-freighter end of space-rock. It’s a sound which Earthless drummer Mario Rubalcaba describes as “Heavy, Loud, Sonic mind melt,” a miasma of repetitive droning from the drums, and Mike Eginton’s driving bass lines, juxtaposed with the crackling fire of Isaiah Mitchell’s guitar. As this double CD recording of their Roadburn set demonstrates in what is notionally marked as four instrumentals but is really one massive head-trip, what they lack in cohesive direction (and it’s fair to say that none of this particularly goes anywhere) they make up for in the sheer guts of their sound.
