EARTHSHIP - COLOSSAL DEBUT ALBUM UNVEILED BY HIGHLY TOUTED RIFF MONSTERS!
Berlin bonecrushers ‘Earthship’ throw down their debut album ‘Exit Eden’, through Pelagic Records (home to The Ocean) / PHD on 28th February 2011.
Laden with mighty riffs, bags of groove, and loaded up on home-brewed whiskey, Earthship surge ahead like a nuclear-powered icebreaker through the Barents Sea.
Earthship were launched in the Spring of 2010 when former drummer of The Ocean Jan Oberg plotted a course with long-time friends Dennis Boettcher (Drums), Robin Staps (Guitar) and Bastian Gutschke (Bass) during a lengthy evening of visiting the shady bars of Berlin, absorbing copious amounts of cheap whiskey. Staps, who officially joined slightly later than the others, remarks: “I have not been involved in the songwriting at all. It is entirely Jan’s creative work”.
Although Earthship are a relatively newborn baby, the riff monsters have all known one another for some time. “Jan has been my neighbour for years here in Berlin; we’ve known each other for ages and had our first band together more than 12 years ago….. we grew up going to shows and playing music together. Jan is a very skilled song-writer and I was always into his stuff, so when he asked me to join his band I agreed right away”, comments Staps.
Earthship release their debut album “Exit Eden” which was recorded by Captain Oberg at his very own Hidden Planet Studios in Berlin. The record is a gut-punching musical stampede and serves as a grim, ugly soundtrack to a rough and dangerous passage through dark, icy waters. Board the Earthship for a ride throughout the vast Black Sea of doom, metal and prog n’roll.
