“Post-metal” can often be guilty of merely being loud and lingering. Cult of Luna totally dodge this pitfall. I think I most enjoyed the many textures throughout this album; percussive items beyond drums, emotive synth swells, untraditional instruments. Cult of Luna create a totally unique flavor to express their musical colors. I loved the powerful CHURN that swirled through much of this album, from the beginning horns and drums, carried forward by an excellent rhythm section.
Favorite track: Cold Burn.
