American progressive metal act HORSE the band has made its 10 hour "Earth Tour" DVD available for free download. A description of the DVD can be found below along with the DVD's official trailer. You can download the "Earth Tour" set at this location.

"Polarizing art-metal weirdos HORSE the band grow tired of life in the American underground music scene and decide to book and fund a 45-countries-in-90-days, round-the-world tour, all by themselves. Unprecedented in its scope and bravery, it is the most ambitious nonstop tour ever attempted. $60,000 of credit card debt later, hilarity, chaos, and metaphysical crises begin to ensue as the band strays far from the tourist-trodden path into the homes, underground clubs, and hangouts of real and driven people from some of Earth's most exotic locales. Sleep deprivation and non-stop travel eventually take their toll, snowballing into an absurd and meaningless seven-and-a-half-hour climax of binge-drinking, fear, thoughtful reflection, hatred, literary criticism, severe depression, and infantile behavior. Moving at a very fast pace and laughing their way through CIA-inadvisable, communist/Muslim/anti-American/human-trafficking/terrorist-laden countries and/or dictatorships including but not limited to China, Egypt, Israel, Turkey, Serbia, Belarus, as well as the rogue nation of Transnistria, experiences boil down to one of two possibilities: the highest of highs or the lowest of lows. Later: The lead singer breaks his shoulder onstage with over a week left of tour. The female photographer becomes fat. People playing music, and selling t-shirts, and changing locations. A modern day Heart of Darkness taking a decidedly frank, open, and honest look at the classic misgivings of a terrible life: What the fuck are we doing? and What happened to me?"
