Angels Of Darkness, Demons Of Light II

Label: Southern Lord

Format: Vinyl LPx2

Genre: Rock

Out of stock

Recorded in the same two week session as 'AODDOL I' by Stuart 
Hallerman at Avast and mastered by Mell Detmer, Earth's 
'Angels of Darkness, Demons of Light II' carries on in the freely 
improvised, folkloric vein of the title track from their last 
release. Tape was rolled and spontaneous composition occurred.
'Angels of Darkness, Demons of Light II' is striking in many ways, not least, in the wildly improvised nature of this particular 
recording. Earth's songs, Sigil of Brass and The Corascene Dog, perfectly emphasise how the interplay between the foursome 
becomes even more accomplished as the recording evolves, a 
testament to the dynamism of this particular line up. Meanwhile, the track, His Teeth Did Brightly Shine, veers further into an entirely other direction, recalling sounds of the great 
British Acid Folk generation. This new Earth material brings forth some highly original and deeply mesmerising tones throughout, at times more hopeful and less dark and death 
oriented than previous work.

'Angels of Darkness, Demons of Light II' is ultimately a new, 
completely unanticipated direction for Earth, and a very 
welcome one at that.

The Earth line-up, again, consists of Dylan R. Carlson on 
guitar and devices (including bass on the track, The Rakehell), Adrienne Davies on drums and percussion (on this release, there is more percussion of all sorts), Lori Goldston (Nirvana, 
David Byrne, Black Cat Orchestra, Laura Veirs) who played on the infamous 
Nirvana album adds a beautiful, haunting element to the proceedings on cello , and Karl Blau (K Records, 
Laura Veirs, Microphones) plays bass. As with the first part, it again has truly amazing artwork by Stacey Rozich.
