COMMENTS

Murder Earth is a 5-piece groove metal band from Des Moines, Iowa, consisting of ex-musicians from Onslot, PygWalk, Nothing, Vice Grip Throttle, Tripwire, Calous, Barter In Blood and Painface. The band incorporates influences from Acid Bath to Pantera.

Tim Flor sometimes goes by Tim 'Dominic' Flor or Dominic Flor. When questioned about this, he replied "I used Dominic because I know too many people named Tim."

Murder Earth have added the old PygWalk song 'Big Top' to their live set.

The name 'Murder Earth' came from old, unreleased PygWalk song. Jared Albertson on the name of the band: "The title is a look in the mirror...our initials are M.E. We write songs about how we as people are doing things to hurt and alienate each other."

The band was asked by the website 'Band Bombshell', to be a part of a project and cover Kanye West's 'Golddigger'.

Murder Earth's video for the song 'Waiting (For The End Of Man)', is the first single off their debut full-length album of the same name. The album was recorded at The Establishment Studios by Griffin Landa, and features special guest vocals by Joe Day (of Apathy Syndrome) and lead guitar work by Donnie Steele (formally of Killpact and Slipknot). The band shot and edited this video by themselves, and is also their first ever music video.
