With Earth's new album Angels Of Darkness & Demons Of Light Volume II out now, band mainstay Dylan Carlson selects his 13 favourite albums for your perusal


King Crimson - Starless And Bible Black

The album that most re-arranged my priorities about music. From the achingly beautiful 'The Night Watch' to the the sinuous and raging 'Great Deceiver' (best description of Jesus' parentage ever - "health food faggot with the bartered bride" - take that black metal), to the awe-inspiring improv of 'Fracture' and 'Starless...' and all the stuff in between, as well as one of my favorite album covers.
