“Father Midnight” is a song off of upcoming “Angels Of Darkness, Demons Of Light Pt.1” album by Seattle band Earth. It is now available for download / streaming via NPR Music’s All Songs Considered Blog.
Since its formation in 1989, Seattle’s Earth has gone through several sonic transformations, but has always been a seeker of heaviness. This song, “Father Midnight” — a track from the upcoming Angels of Darkness, Demons of Light 1 — is a long way from the band’s early-’90s material. Earth 2‘s monolithic, metallic drone would inspire the likes of Sunn O))), and later the band would take a more minimalist, rock-oriented approach withPentastar: In the Style of Demons.
