We are Unto the Earth, a four piece metal band out of Chicago, straddling the lines between stoner, desert, doom, and sludge, with shoegaze and heavy psych influences.
Formed in 2019, we have embarked on a musical odyssey that combines driving drums, melodic basslines, layered guitars, and evocative lyrics, while paying tribute to the influences of our youth.
PRESS AND REVIEWS
"Unto the Earth may be influenced by many different bands of the Hard Rock/Metal scene but The Dawning is their show and they're in complete control of this brilliantly insane album. With first rate production values helping the band deliver a punishing audio experience, this allows The Dawning to be one of the best debut albums to be released this year.
This is a wonderfully diverse album that the underground scene needs to know about now." - Steve Howe, Outlaws of the Sun
"The Dawning makes good on the potential that I'd gleaned seeing Unto the Earth play live here in Chicago. The band combines stoner rock and doom - an obvious pairing, of course - with elements of grunge and alternative metal - less obvious, maybe. Hazy tones and a wide-open production set the stage for a space western, perhaps: heat, dust, and mystery abound."
- Ted Nubel, Invisible Oranges
