Angels of Darkness, Demons of Light II represents not only the most overt and successful attempt to capture the patience, subtlety and fluidity of Earth’s talented cast, but also the most accurate document of their patient, stoical and determinedly psychedelic ethos. »

recorded in the same two week session as 'angels of darkness, demons of light 1' by stuart
hallerman at avast and mastered by mell detmer, earth's 'angels of darkness, demons of light 2' 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 2' 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 2' is ultimately a new, completely unanticipated direction for earth, and a very welcome one at that.
