"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, Vol 1
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.
