The fact that "Angels Of Darkness, Demons Of Light I" had to be added something else had not been thought of despite the Roman "I" in the title. The work seemed to be too final with its twenty minutes of still lifes scratching the surface. But it wasn't all that Dylan R. Carlson and his comrades-in-arms had achieved with this mammoth project during the two-week production phase. Everything there was intuitive, the ideas only came in the studio during the different jam sessions. Part 2 is the second part of these improvisations, which again seem endless. Earth are true masters in the creation of transcendent mood images. And out of nowhere, so to speak. Four of the five tunes become longtracks - Folk'n'Doom in slow-motion deliberation. Earth are in no hurry to get to the point with songs like "His Teeth Did Brightly Shine" or "The Rakebell". They always work towards one, but never reach him.
