PROG REVIEWER
3 stars Have you read my ISIS “Oceanic” review? Then you know what to expect from here :) It’s not a joke actually, this is pretty true: music is good, vocals are hardly bearable. I prefer instrumental Post-Metal bands (PELICAN) or at least those who try to sing in the way I can endure or even enjoy (THE MORNINGSIDE). So CULT OF LUNA is a good band (I guess) but just not for my favourities’ pantheon. I won’t refuse to check some other albums (they have higher rating) from them later, but this one has left me cold. For genre’s fans I believe, but don’t miss it if you’ll chance to listen to it.

2 stars The end of the 90's saw the rise of whole legions of Neurosis influenced post-metal bands. While some of them carved their own path, Cult of Luna stayed as true to the Neurosis sound as they could on their debut.

It condemns this album to the "fans of the style territory" and those fans will probably not be disappointed with this album. It is an endless outburst of violence, it's wild, compelling and very intense. But the songwriting is rather unremarkable. Not that this is a required feature with this music but some more diversity to be able to distinguish one track from the next would have been interesting.

Cult of Luna were excellent at what they tried to do. It's an accomplishment that almost deserves 3 stars and that motivated me enough to seek out the rest of their catalogue. But I can't think of anything else to say about this particular album. Decent, but not particularly inspiring.

3 stars 5/10

Mediocre Beginnings.

Swedish act Cult Of Luna already had their roots planted in their debut album of the same name. Like many debut albums, however, "Cult Of Luna" has nothing but a skeleton, a basic sound, and no original skin to cover it, to make it appealing. Casually produced, this album shows an interesting and somewhat promising blend of Post-Hardcore, Sludge Metal, and Metalcore and together assemble a few interesting tracks such as the closing "The Sacrifice", definitely the most multi-faceted and well structured out of the entire LP, or "Circle", which proudly earns the compliment of heaviest song here. Looking at the album as a whole, it's easy to see the talent, but the casual production dooms the LP down to very average levels. Only for the fans.

3 stars "Cult of Luna" is the debut full-length studio album by Swedish sludge/post metal act Cult of Luna. The album was released through Rage of Achilles Records in August 2001. Earache Records re-released the album on CD in 2003 and on double vinyl in 2010.

The music on the album is sludge/post metal with roots in post hardcore (the Swedish post harcore pioneers in Breach are definitely not unknown to these guys). The tracks are mostly slow-to mid paced featuring some really raw and heavy sludgy riffing and some pretty extreme shouting vocals. The music is for the most part rather abrasive and probably purposedly designed to make your ears bleed but there are some more atmospheric post metal parts in the music too. They are very few though and this is first and foremost a brick heavy and fiercely aggressive album. The general lack of dynamics in the tracks, can make the 8 track, 61:06 minutes long album a bit of a trial to get through but if you like them as harsh, uninviting and raw as they come this album certainly applies.

The sound production is equally raw and gritty and it´s hard not to at least partially enjoy the sensation of being hit on the head by a brick heavy dose of sludge/post metal when it is delivered with the fierce conviction and professionalism as it is here. A 3.5 star (70%) rating is deserved.

Latest members reviews

5 stars The conventional wisdom about Cult of Luna's self-titled début album is that it's a less sophisticated and dynamic affair than the band's later material. This is actually almost entirely wrong; the band goes through nearly as many dynamic shifts as on any of their later material, and the band's slow ... (read more)
