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.

Bonnek | 2/5 |
