On Earth as It Is in Heaven is the third album by the rock band Angel. It is the last album with Mickie Jones who had been the band's bass guitar player since its formation. It was produced by Eddie Kramer (KISS/Jimi Hendrix) and recorded in an actual castle in the Hollywood Hills. It marked a shift from progressive and symphonic hard rock to a more mainstream hard rock approach, with the exception of "Cast the First Stone" and "Just A Dream" which are very similar in sound to the songs on Angel and Helluva Band. In fact, "Cast The First Stone" was written during the Helluva Band sessions. The band toured non-stop and it was during this time they made their only tour of Japan. The album peaked at #77 on the US Billboard charts.

Lovember Records reissued On Earth... in a digitally remastered limited edition in August 2008. It included a 16-page booklet with liner notes by the journalist Dave Reynolds (Classic Rock magazine and Kerrang), a track-by-track run down by the singer Frank DiMino, all lyrics and previously unreleased photos. The LP originally contained a symmetrical poster of the album cover.
