  1. Light Of Day, Day Of Darkness

Light of Day, Day of Darkness is the second (one-track) studio album by the Norwegian progressive metal band, Green Carnation. The album was composed, written and arranged by founding member Terje Vik Schei (a.k.a. Tchort). It was released by The End Records on January 8 2002. It is composed of a single 60-minute track on CD, but is split into 2 parts digitally. The album was largely inspired by the death of Tchort’s daughter and the birth of his son. It is said that 600 different samples were used in the editing of the song.

Musically, Light of Day, Day of Darkness is pure progressive metal. In this album, the band combines many different instruments, not commonly used in metal, to create an original soundscape. The album shows some death metal twinges from their roots with Roger Rasmussen / Nattefrost drafted in to perform death growls and Anders Kobro implementing occasional blast beats as well.
