"Chapter II: Vulgo Gratissimus Auctor goes further – not only in confirming the potential of its predecessor, but in setting a course for progression in style and performance that makes these songs a joy to hear. There are a few that resonate better than others, but taken as a whole work, At Devil Dirt’s second offering is a rich collection that gives a lasting impression, and the span they cover proves that it’s not all about tone… even if there’s plenty of that to be had as well." JJ Koczan (The Obelisk)

"Each time I listen to this album I have a new list of four favorite tracks. Oh yeah, every song is a highlight.
You will come for the fuzz but you will stay for the melodic hooks."
Lucas Klaukien (Paranoid Hitsophrenic)

"all the above guide me to the conclusion that if “Chapter II” had one or two tracks less, we’d be speaking about this year’s top album (or one of the most serious candidates for 2012’s top five)" Maria Voutiriadou Metal Kaos)

"What is amazing of this band is how simple, basic, primitive, dirty, the sounds are, and how rich and solid they are as well and how deep they reach you down inside while they move via vibrations from your skin and from your belly to your brain cells. Only two people …"
Marilena Moroni (Doomantia)

"Chapter II" takes all the stuff I loved about that first release, the droning vocal harmonies, and the thick molten syrup-like fuzz guitar tone, and adds even more fuzz (if that's possible) and harmonic textures to the wall of sound, that is At Devil Dirt.
Adam Walsh (Ear Munchies)

"Long story short, At Devil Dirt is a band you ought to check out and be sure to give both their albums multiple listens 'cause each and every time will sound even more exciting. At Devil Dirt are a sincere, special band that for once more offered us one of the year's best releases."
Thanos Aronopoulos (Downtuned Magazine & Radio)

"The riffs are louder, heavier and better than ever. This album just blasts the other one into dust. At Devil Dirt have released an album that should cement their fame and reputation as one of South America’s best Stoner/Sludge Metal hopes."
Steve Howe (Sludgelord blog)

"I love that contrast between the deepness and melody of the vocals and the guitars which are very heady and crushing; even if this is different and doesn't exactly recover the same kind of textures, I feel this sounds a bit similar as the heaviest side of OM and even a few weedy SLEEPian overtones can be smelt here and there ! I honestly think these are just references, nothing too obvious and easy that you've heard ten times before, this is defenitley fresh, sincere and harmonious and makes it an agreeable surprise..."
Sthéphane Le Saux (Temple of Perdition)

"I was impressed that the album is full of fuzzy moments, and even more from the debut album, that here the guitar unleashes massive riffs mostly in slow tempo, but with several outbursts that shakes the soul of the listener" (welcome to the void)

"The slow, driven and impending doom remains an underlying factor that ties the whole record together throughout the duration. But the strange thing is the collaboration between that doom and the almost softly sang vocals. It's different and at first it does sort of catch you off guard." Jay Hooke (Ride with the devil)

"What is most impressive is this quick organic growth within the year since the debut, which was good but brash, now Chapter II steps it up in every area, At Devil Dirt have gotten even heavier. This is a great record coming from the South Americas and I hope these guys keep on getting better because I know there’s a classic in them. " Sean Thomas (The Soda Shop)

"Chilean fuzz monsters AT DEVIL DIRT have set August 31st as the release date for their self-produced sophomore full-length outing “Chapter II: Vulgo gratissimus auctor”. Using just one guitar, drums and vocals the South American duo offer an album that comprises of eleven doomy psychedelic rock songs."

"At Devil Dirt may be somewhat isolated in their location, but they are beyond doubt the caliber of band that should get label support to spread their music far beyond South America, and do some touring to let us witness the magic firsthand." A.S. Van Dorston (Fast ´n´Bulbuos)

Track Name: I am an ugly skin
Goodbye my friend,
Don´t worry, the pain is gone
He said, god took it away…
But I say, fuck you man!
I am an ugly skin

Don´t be afraid, we ´re not alone
I´m an ugly skin, YES i am
I am the bastard to bleed, SO
Let me swing, let me run, let me down
I am an ugly skin

Through suffering
comes redemption
Through sorrow comes exaltation
Through pitch dark
comes a cleansing fire
Through the fucking fire
you´re welcome in hell
Track Name: Don´t be afraid
Don´t be afraid
I wanna run away
To the land of wet dreams
It’s not what you think

I want to run
Far away from here
I feel very small…
What can I do?

Let me tell you something
Something that maybe
you will not believe
I am your enemy
Track Name: I walk aimlessly
walk aimlessly

Hey honey, I left you again
You learnt nothing at all
I´m a hole in the floor
You always step in and fall

I don´t know, Why you´re laughing
I must confess, This really hurts

I walk aimlessly
Nothing in my heart
I'm confused again
Nothing in my hands

Adios a tu verdad
No queda mas aqui
La lluvia sin piedad
Golpea tu mirar
Track Name: Better the devil you know than the devil you don´t know

Thousands of whispering taken my soul and my mind
I fear for you, but I know I´ll see you again
This side or the other, I do not complain
I´m still home, sitting and smoking a weed

You know it, but I don´t
I can´t see you, I don´t know why
I don´t know why you here
I don´t know if really want you

Better the devil you know
Than the devil you don´t know
Track Name: Let it Flow
Aah! Just let it flow!

Aah! Just let it flow

What do you hide?, What have you done?
I give you this part of me,
It´s the distribution of my fear
the beauty of this vision falls

come on, come on, follow me down
come on ,come on, What do you want?
come on, come on, follow me down
come on ,come on, just let it flow
Track Name: Lie to me
Lie to me
You get the tears
I got the smile…
You have a fever
But I don´t care

Come closer, I must confess
Come around, I have something to say
I yell loud, you give me only shit
I´m the looser weeping on the floor

Healing must begin
Otherwise you will die
now, murder
and then wash away the blood
Track Name: Peel

Take a little piece of me
Take the long way down
I can’t believe it, I did again
Take the long way down

Peel your eyes and peel your soul for me
Write with blood, what do you want?
Nothing can save us right now
Nothing can save us right now

Sitting in my couch smoking a weed
Peel your eyes and peel your soul for me
Track Name: Curse

Rise again, it is my mind
I must admit, I needed love!
Don´t you see, I can´t explain
Try again… on my bed!

Don´t you know ? How it hurts…
Say it again … you delay…
Suck my tongue , take out my thoughts
I love you… it´s my curse

Don´t you know how this shit can hurt
Can´t you see, I could love your spit
Don’t you want a little bit of mine?
Come again wherever you are
Track Name: unleash your anger
Unleash your anger

Unleash your anger
Upon this fucking country
The more you need more you steal
Let me unleash my anger

Unleash your anger

Unleash your anger
Upon this fucking government
My president, oh yeah!
Is a fucking asshole!
Track Name: I said goddamn
I say goddamn

How could never die?
Did you see that!
What the fuck man!
I don’t get it

I got the drill

…And I say goddamn
I can see your blood
I can prove that because
I got the drill

I say goddamn
Track Name: That the start sweet ends bitter
That the start sweet ends bitter

That the start sweet ends bitter
That the start sweet ends bitter

Getaway… runaway

I was not made to smile
I was not built to lie
Here come darkness
I´m going nowhere, nowhere, nowhere.

The end of all reason
Now is the time
