CULT OF LUNA
CULT OF LUNA
The Beyond
(Earache Records)
64:56min

Well, this is definitely not an easy-listening band! Swedish CULT OF LUNA perform a mixture of emotional Hardcore and atmospheric, spheric electronics that I can only compare to a band like NEUROSIS. The whole thing sounds a bit like CROWBAR with programming effects, keyboards and loops. Although CULT OF LUNA are no band for the typical Voices-visitor, because they have absolutely nothing to do with Death, Thrash or Black, I think it would be unfair to make fun of them or run them down. CULT OF LUNA create their stuff straight from the heart and I feel obliged to honor that! Who likes modern sounds like the bands I mentioned should give CULT OF LUNA's intense apocalyptic soundscapes a serious chance. Their music was not made for me, but "The Beyond" managed to touch even my ignorant Death Metal heart a few times and so I can not talk bad of this band. I hope no one thinks that I am a wimp now... ha ha. www.cultofluna.com
