Earth streaming 'Angels of Darkness, Demons of Light part II' on Pitchfork
Last year, Seattle-based drone metal band, Earth, released the first part of a dual album release called 'Angels Of Darkness, Demons Of Light.' Part I came out almost exactly one year ago and it was essentially in the same vein as their previous full-length 'The Bees Made Honey In The Lions Skull,' but darker, and slightly doom-laden.
'Angels/Demons part I' was one of the more memorable albums of 2011, and I've been salivating at the thought of part II, which comes out February 14, just six short days away, which means that a six day wait should be nothing after an entire year.
Well fuck that, because Pitchfork.com is streaming 'Angels of Darkness, Demons of Light part II' in its entirety on their website right now. I literally just started listening to it, so I'll reserve any major judgement for now, but my first impression: I could not be more at peace than I am right now listening to this. If you've never given Earth a try, I suggest you start now, with this very album. Turn it up loud, maybe smoke a little bit of your local forbidden herb (if that suits you), and let the wall of sound close in around you.
