Cult Of Luna

Cult Of Luna

Profile:
Cult Of Luna (Umeå, Sweden, 1998 – present) emerged from the infamous hardcore act Eclipse (22). When the band split up, vocalist Klas Rydberg along with guitarist Johannes Persson had new ideas how to explore music further on. A new band had come to light, soon to be called Cult of Luna. After some member hunting and rehearsals, Cult of Luna had some ideas on the sound; raw, heavy and emotional.
They slowly garnered critical appreciation and underground popularity with early releases Cult of Luna (2001) and The Beyond (2003); however, it is 2004's Salvation that can be considered their 'breakthrough' release. By cutting down on the somewhat esoteric use of aggression so indicative of doom, it appealed to a new group of fans. Its calmer sound has earned it favourable reviews in the mainstream music press, a reputation built upon for the release of Somewhere Along the Highway in 2006, another largely well-received album.
The band's fifth album, Eternal Kingdom, was released on June 16 2008 in Europe followed by its release on July 8 in the United States.
