Cult Of Luna & Julie Christmas - Mariner 2LP
THIS The new 2016 album, released by Indie Recordings. Info from the label: With their mindmelting eighth epos, Cult Of Luna & Julie Christmas brings you to the outer rim of the ever expanding boundaries of the cosmos - where the rules of man is not applicable and the cold, dark nothing envelops the harsh realities of the universe. Since their beginnings in 1998 - Cult Of Luna has released seven albums, been awarded the top rock/ metal award at the Swedish National Radio Awards and cemented their status as one of the true progressors of the metal genre, beknownst to most metal aficionados. In 2013, the Swedes teamed up with Indie Recordings for the release of perhaps their most successful work to date in the shape of äóìVertikal Iäó? and "Vertikal II". These cohesive pieces of work received worldwide appraisal and only pillared Cult Of Luna to even greater heights. For their eight effort, the post-metal pioneers join forces with the talented Julie Christmas from Brooklyn, whom bring an even larger depth to Cult Of Lunas sound. Her haunting voice has fronted vital bands such as Made Out of Babies and Battle of Mice, and is one of significance in the underground sludge and post-metal scene. Furthermore, she has released two solo albums and features on tracks by bands like Mouth of the Architect and String of Consciousness. Her prowess as a vocalist is powerfully on display on Mariner.
