The best kept secret in music




Walk the Earth, a great trio from Union, Mo., has finally released a CD and I feel so strongly about wanting to do it justice, I don’t even know where to start. Let’s start by saying this: Walk the Earth is an excellent band that is truly unique in what they do. Lead singer/guitarist Tim Johnson does a great job experimenting with different guitar tunings and provides a low, gloomy sound for the band that is brutally effective. There are plenty of great guitar parts on this CD, ranging from the painfully heavy to the clean and melodic. Every song has a haunting feel, and the vocals are certainly up to par with the music. This is one of the few cases where a band with all the angst of Black Sabbath could simultaneously please fans of the Cure, as well.

Though there are several good tracks on this recording, “The Fifth (Flood of Creation)” and “The Long Road Home” stand out as the best. The great thing about hearing these songs on the recording is that they have the same dramatic effect that they do at one of Walk the Earth’s gigs. Simply put, Flood of Creation is a great creation indeed. | John Kujawski

"Three to See"

. . .The melodies are truly spectacular and the vocals fit in perfectly with the low guitar riffs, making the distinct sound all the more effective. This is certainly something different for the local music scene. . . - Playback

Feeling a bit camera shy


We first met in 2001. We had the opportunity to play together a few times with both Tim and EJ on guitars and myself on drums. It would be some time until we worked together again. . .

January, 2004

Tim and I spent 2004 recording and developing an enormous wealth of songs. Months went by that Tim would show up with new songs every session. We maintained a steady recording and rehearsal schedule. We played 3 shows as Walk the Earth in 2004. We were a two piece. We started recording at Pogo Studio in Champaign, IL, just to stay busy. Near Thanksgiving we compiled a group of songs that we had recorded in my office over the previous year to be released as our first album. By the end of the year we released our first album, "Mirror" a full length experimental demo if you will. Our very loyal fans consumed these CD's giving us the vision to grow. EJ would soon be joining us again. This time as the bass guitarist.

January, 2005

With just six weeks under our belts as a 3 piece, we started playing live. The entire band wasted no time tightening up. We continued on our recording project at Pogo Studio and played live regularly. We continued our recording and rehearsal schedule. By the end of the year we had finished our second album. It is to be our first "official" album.

January 2006

Flood of Creation released.
