Ever since one of my all-time favorite rock bands, Earth, dropped the album Angels of Darkness, Demons of Light I, I've been anxiously waiting for the album's sequel to be released. As you might remember from my review of that album. I was a fan of the songs, but somewhat on the fence with the addition of cello in Earth's music. The mix, in my opinion, wasn't exactly complementing this new instrument, making the overall sound of the record somewhat muddy.
From what I'm hearing, that issue seems to be cleared up a bit. The cello, bass, guitar clearly have their own space on this new track, "the Corascene Dog," and each flow slowly and heavily in the music.
Look out for this new Earth LP via Southern Lord on Feb. 14th.
