Editorial Reviews

Recorded in the same two week session as Angels of Darkness, Demons of Light 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 mesmeriising 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 brand new, completely unanticipated direction for Earth, and a very welcome one at that.

2. His Teeth Did Brightly Shine
3. Multiplicity of Doors
4. The Corascene Dog
5. The Rakehell
6. Incredible etching (no music)

Earth is one of my favorites discoveries of '12. Feels so calm yet so heavy and emotional. This record ir GREAT when played loud throught a good sound system. So hypnotic and textured. And I think there's a concept behind Angels of Darkness, Demons of Light 1 and 2. The quote on the booklet of Angels1 says something about Alchemy, and on Angels2 says "Sila ersinarsinivdluge" which means "be not afraid of the universe". So alchemy and The Universe? That's pretty cool. Great Album. not Earth's finest, but surely you will not be dissapointed.

I like Earth. Not the early stuff, but from "Hex" on out, I think they are solid.

Earth inspired many bands. Sunn, Boris, etc. etc. Just their early stuff is too low fi and boring for me, and I LIKE drone.

I have AODDOL1 and I though it was pretty good. Dylan Carlson's Telecaster through a twin Reverb is pretty hard to beat. He owns the rights to any future Wild West film soundtrack anyone ever needs made in my opinion. One listen to Hex and you will feel as though you are nailing a buffalo's skull to the plains and tearing it's hide off with your team of horses. Maybe you are the Native tribe that is still trying to eek out a living and avoid the white devil. Maybe you are Daniel Plainview and you have struck oil in the desert. Either way, "Hex" is your soundtrack.

The Bees Made Honey saw Earth using a Rhodes piano as a first, and it was a wonderful addition to the band. The sorrowful sounds created by the piano, coupled with Carlson's piercing riffs added a new dimension to the music. A steady, heavy tempo kept by minimal drumming and the staunch bass lines made it a solid album.

AODDOL2 has cello. Yup, cello. Do I like cello? Sure, I guess. It's kind of like putting too much ketchup on your hotdog. You're still going to eat the hotdog, but you wish there wasn't as much, or maybe any. At times the cello gets annoying, like the song is focusing on lots of cello, and really needs about zero cello. I liked the Rhodes better, I thought it was more tasteful and fitting. Maybe a full blown strings section would be cool, but I like the sparse sounds of Earth a la "Hex."

I've listened to this album many times now, and find it stumbles out of the blocks every time, with the first track, "Sigil of Brass." This song seems to be Dylan Carlson simply plucking random notes on his guitar, with only an afterthought as to a melody.

The remaining four tracks are good and sound like Earth. I feel they could be stronger if so much improvisation was crafted into "pre-written" songs.

There is also a sense that this album is not really a sequel, but a B-sides compilation of the Angels sessions.

In the same vein as Hex and The bees made honey. I think I like those a little more than this album but this is still good. I'd rank Angels of Darkness, Demons of Light 1 slightly better than this one. This is still a solid album though.

It's still very good, but maybe not as amazing as the first one. Once it starts moving it's a very similar feel.
