Earth - Angels Of Darkness, Demons Of Light: 1

Rating: 8

Earth’s continued trudge into beatific wilderness sees Dylan Carlson return to territory traversed by the desolate windswept tundras of ‘Hex’, stripped of the rich organ and brass that made ‘The Bees Made Honey In The Lion‘s Skull’ so memorable. Yet while the stark minimalism of ‘Hex’ evoked a sense of doom and desolation, ‘Angels Of Darkness...’ has an innate warmth that defies its morbid track titles: Adrienne Davies’ jazz-inflected groove lifts ‘Father Midnight’ out of the morass, while the title track, a gently simmering drone underpinned by Lori Goldston’s weaving cello, resonates slowly into the distance for 20 glorious shivery minutes.
