We find the drone genre rather fascinating, what makes people want to hear such repetitive heavy music. To the casual listener drone music seems to go nowhere. Yet, the more patient listener who lets the music wash over them, it can be a thing of beauty. In our experience, we love drone to be played at insanely high volumes or through headphones, there is no in between as the music can really take your mind to other places.

Father Sky Mother Earth, from Hamburg, Germany is an intriguing duo that brings forth a collection of two songs of meditative drone that borders on the side of doom and space metal. The two tracks “The Return of Alhazred” and “Across the River of Time” run approximately just over 18:00 each. For fans of bands like Sunn O))), you may find this album to your liking. It’s a slow, droning affair that is not for the faint of heart.

Do Father Sky Mother Earth bring anything new to the table in the drone genre?
Across The River Of Time may not be breaking the barriers of drone music, but they have a monumental sound that doesn’t waiver one bit.

How is the production value?
The production is good. The only problem we encountered was the percussion, it sounds a bit programmed. The cymbal use can become unnerving at times.

What adult beverage to enjoy while listening to this album?
We recommend Troegs Mad Elf. This winter dark ale is wicked strong with an 11% (ABV). Combine this with the drone music of Father Sky Mother Earth and you’re in for quite an experience.

Final thoughts on Across The River Of Time.
Drone music is a very acquired taste, we are always in search of fresh new artists who can take this genre to the next level, whatever that may be. This may not be an album that we go to very often, but when the mood strikes us for some drone, we will no doubt reach for Father Sky Mother Earth. - 7/14/2017
