CRITIC REVIEWS

90
AllMusic

Earth's massive, plodding, serpentine approach on Primitive and Deadly reflects a new focus on lyric euphony and a renewed commitment to corporeal force.

85
The Line of Best Fit

This is properly heavy fare, a sound utterly bereft of light yet still richly, intensely, rewardingly musical that makes the evil posturing of the extreme metal posse seem even more daft.

musicOMH

Primitive And Deadly, in part, represents an encapsulation of Earth’s discography, but more importantly it also sees the band moving on, entering a new phase and expanding their dimensions.

80
Drowned in Sound

Primitive and Deadly is the latest in a recent suite of triumphs – by this point Earth are masters of their game, making music that’s bigger and more powerful than anything mere mortals should be able to create.

70
Pitchfork

This is the closest Carlson has ever been to leading a rock band, to fully offloading his exceptional sense of control into a systemic and thorough whole.

An honest effort at capturing the early styles of Black Sabbath, Heart and others, but just pretty uneventful.
