Earth - The Bees Made Honey in the Lion's Skull (2008)

Beautiful, melodic drone. I'm not sure what else to say about this album, having never really heard anything like it before. I'm fairly certain that Earth began as a drone metal band, but you won't find any Sunn O)))-esque refrigerator noises on this album, if that's what you associate with drone. There's a bit of piano here and there, but the star of the album is the variety of relatively simple chord progressions that drive each song. Hooray for minimalism.
