All other bands: Here's an EP

Cult of Luna: Hold my cock

2.5 averagethis is the best album that i\\\\\\\'ve (n)ever heard in my entire life. | February 6th 21

The only thing impressive about this is how boring it is.

3 Bumps | Bump

4.0 excellentmonocaust | February 5th 21

starting to get offensive how consistently excellent their output is. Closing minutes of Wave After Wave is vintage CoL

2 Bumps | Bump

4.5 superbFurtherDown | February 5th 21

CoL at their darkest since Eternal Kingdom. Unsuprisingly awesome.

4.0 excellentBedex | October 18th 21

Man I do love me some synth of Luna. This feels like the band yet again finding a very slightly different twist to their sound, combining the heavy reliance on synths displayed on ADTF to their sludgier beginnings. This combination is most prominent on the excellent 1 (which becomes particularly beautiful starting at 6:30 whereas it is more on the aggressive, sludgy side beforehand), 2 which is super gritty and evokes almost the first CoL EP - emphasising the sludge side there, and 6, especially its majestic end with the last two minutes showing the synths going into a noisy whirlwind of emotions behind the endless (and quite rehashed in their discog ngl) post-metal riffage. People seem to like the track before last a lot too but it is about the one that least convinced me, feeling just a bit tame and more 'standard CoL' than anything here. Compare to the excellent atmosphere on 6 that unfolds superbly well into a beat we have practically never seen in their disocg before, going to a transition of desolate desperation before the majestic last few miuntes I mentioned, and to me it is clear 4 is instantly more simplistic and less engaging, dropping this a point. 3 I am not sure about as the ?guest vox isnt too my cuppa, but the track is short enough that the novelty is sufficient to counterbalance that. Rock solid as always - too often almost? Idk how to rate these anymore. 3.9

Bump

4.0 excellentThe Aspie Fantastie | March 1st 21

Cult of Luna is as Cult of Luna does and what Cult of Luna does mostly (if I forget 'Vertikal' ever existed) is a tight and often beautiful, albeit far from boundary pushing, yelpy sludgy post-metal.

Bump

4.5 superbChino smoking it up! | February 8th 21

This EP just ran me over. The dynamics and emotions thrown on last 2 tracks are too immense. Really beautiful ending to an already engaging listen.
