Cult Of Luna - The Beyond 2-LP (Black vinyl)
From the depths of industrial catacombs rises an unrelenting beast – awakened like a forgotten, advanced race of cyborgs from a parallel dimension. Cult Of Luna’s second offering goes beyond the debut’s cryptic tone and relishes in the post / cyber-apocalyptic realm of futility to literally churn a new warp hole of cataclysmic proportions. The band is arguably at their heaviest here – thundering guitars eclipsing time itself backed by Rydberg’s lion-like roars make up the impenetrable backbone of the album, and it’s thicker than any steak sauce on the market. Production all around is a step up: crisp, booming, rich, and with plenty of distortion for the listener to get lost in like an abyss.
