Cult Of Luna Live Review - London, Assembly Hall
Venue: Assembly Hall, London
Cult of Luna celebrate the 10th anniversary of Somewhere Along The Highway.
Expectation fills the air as seven figures take their places wordlessly on the Assembly Hall stage.
Cult Of Luna have come a long way since the release of their self-titled debut 15 years ago. Indeed, the enigmatic Swedes have almost reached the point at which they can do whatever they like.
They arrive in Islington a few days after the release of Mariner, an album (their eighth in total) made with New York-based singer Julie Christmas, whose previous experience includes stints with Made Out Of Babies and Battle Of Mice. For most acts, this would be the ideal justification to fill the set with new, unheard material. Cult Of Luna, though, do exactly the opposite, and Mariner goes unrepresented.
