Cult of Luna - Vertikal / Indie 6.5/10

We are totally new to this band and genre post-metal. We can say for certain this is new/different to us.

Vertikal is 10 songs and over 66 minutes long. Don't come here expecting to get a quick listen and decide if you like this or not. We will say patience is a must. This albums takes you places rarely visited in your head. It has very slow songs that make you want to sliced your wrist in agony one minute. Then you find yourself enjoying this chaotic industrial/punk rythm but before you realize it withers away and we are back to the slow melodic tempo with slow vocals leading the way. We have very mixed feelings about this release. In the one hand, we love the original structure of the songs since they don't follow normal/regular tempos.

Songs are often long, slow, repetitive and crushing, heavy sections of distorted guitars often interspersed with orchestral interludes and extended, post-rock-esque forays. The group shuns conventional song structures, opting for a sound that evolves throughout a song, sometimes toward a climactic crescendo, instead of a verse-chorus-verse pattern. That style, incorporating sections of "light and dark" into their music. Here's is what they said about Vertikal's writing process.

Vertikal is a concept album. Cult of Luna said, "Before we started writing, we were keen to find a theme that in a very direct way could be shown through the music, and we hope to have achieved this. We developed clear structures — very linear, refusing to over complicate the writing process." The album's concept was heavily influenced by Fritz Lang's 1927 film Metropolis and features themes of "machinery, repetition and clear, linear structures."

Overall we are definitely not the post-metal authority around here but we do like alot of the elements available here. We do like this release and it takes us places we haven't been before. It is long though, so lay back relax and hopefully it won't give you crazy ideas of a mass murder/suicide. Enjoy!
