Swedish post-metal institution CULT OF LUNA recently announced the release of their sixth studio album Vertikal. The first new output since 2008’s Eternal Kingdom will be released on Jannuary 25th via Indie Recordings. It will feature nine new songs by the guys from Umeå and was very much influenced by the legendary movie Metropolis from Fritz Lang. CULT OF LUNA about the concept of the album: “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” Listen to the epic first song I: The Weapon already today – nine minutes of pure heavy heaven.
