Exclusive Premiere: Cult of Luna, “Light Chaser”
UPDATED: Now with actual audio! Sorry about before.
Cult of Luna released their sixth full-length album Vertikal in January, an expansive, dynamic adventure into post-post-metal that caught us on our heels and has stayed in regular rotation in all corners of the MetalSucks Mansion ever since. The four songs that make up the band’s new EP — the appropriately titled Vertikal II — were written at the same time as those on Vertikal and were always intended to be released a short while after. Today we bring you the EP’s second track, “Light Chaser,” a darkly psychedelic and dreamy exploration into a slightly different side of these Swedes; listening to it you won’t be surprised to learn that another song on Vertikal II was remixed by Justin Broadrick.
Catch Cult of Luna on tour in North America with Katatonia, TesseracT and Intronaut this fall; dates here.
