Earth (Southern Lord Records)

What happens after rebirth? The newness of one's soul, vision or culture can only last so long until it disintegrates with fading inspiration, jaded attitudes and divided opinions. Rebirth is only as powerful as its ability to continually transform the transformed and those around them. As Earth developed its heavy instrumental vision in the past six years, subtle deviation has been crucial to the band's renewal. Angels of Darkness, Demons of Light 1 is the latest installment in that trajectory, adding a cello, desert blues and British folk-rock motifs to Earth's slow-moving Americana.

Originally, Earth pioneered the minimalist metallic drones that shook speakers to frayed wires with 1993's Earth 2, followed by more straightforward but still heavy fare. After a break, the band re-emerged in 2005 with Hex; Or Printing in the Infernal Method, a doomy, noirish Americana record that confounded as much as it retained the heaviness that defined Earth. But this time, the group redefined heaviness on its own terms.

Earth is a live band truly invested in its craft. At least that's what I realized after witnessing them in Baltimore in June. Led by guitarist Dylan Carlson, the instrumental quartet gave a stirring, meditative performance at All Tomorrow's Parties, mostly culling from this year's excellent Angels of Darkness, Demons of Light I, but also reaching back to its louder days with "Ouroboros is Broken. - NPR
