Hibernaculum is an EP by Washington drone/doom band Earth.
Background[edit | edit source]
Earth recorded Hibernaculum in early 2006 to bridge the timeframe between albums. All of the songs, except for "A Plague of Angels", are older Earth songs that were re-recorded in the country-influenced style of Hex. "Ouroboros is Broken" originally came from Extra-Capsular Extraction, "Coda Maestoso in F (Flat) Minor" originally came from Pentastar: In The Style Of Demons and "Miami Morning Coming Down" was originally recorded on the Scatter compilation under the title "Dissolution II: Miami Morning Coming Down (You Fuck)". "A Plague of Angels" originally appeared on a split with Sunn O))) entitled Angel Coma. "A Plague of Angels" was recorded in December 2005.
The album includes a DVD with a documentary by Seldon Hunt, called "Within the Drone". The documentary was shot during the band's tour with Sunn O))).
The EP title culls from a zoology term for a place of abode in which a creature seeks refuge, such as a bear using a cave to overwinter. Both "Coda Maestoso in F (Flat) Minor" and a "A Plague of Angels" appear in the documentary, "The Wild and Wonderful Whites of West Virginia".
