More Information

VERTIKAL (1/29/13, Density Records) marks a much?anticipated return for Cult of Luna after five years spent cultivating the ideas and directing the influences that have helped form a concept for the album. Distilled throughout are themes of machinery, repetition and clear, linear structures honed to the visual imagery of Fritz Lang’s classic expressionist science?fiction film ‘Metropolis’. The music broods, builds and boils as you may expect from Cult of Luna, but never over?complicates itself or veers from its intentions; it is arguably their finest and most cohesive piece of work to date.

“Vertikal is a challenging and extraordinary album, complex and aching. Like a great city that is also a machine, it has moments of great beauty, technical wonder and a deep, gaping pit of cost and loss. Cult of Luna have created a wondrous musical engine.� (4.5/5) – About.com
