Cult of Luna
Salvation (Earache)

By: Mike SOS

Sensational Swedish septet Cult of Luna returns with Salvation, a gallant eight-track, 73-minute affair. Juxtaposing the ethereal vibe of Neurosis with the sonic crush of Isis, tracks like "Vague Illusions" morph from aggressive bits of vocal shrapnel to atmospheric guitar interludes. While some may argue that the album is overall weighty and overwrought, tracks like the bone chilling "White Cell" showcase just how mighty Cult of Luna can be when the death metal world meets the prog rock realm in a battle for earth shaking metal's coveted crown. As Axl Rose once sang, you just need "a lil' patience" (and perhaps some good drugs), to fully appreciate the Gothic doom and metallic mope which Cult of Luna pristinely deliver.
