Cult Of Luna & Julie Christmas: Mariner

Album Review

Sweden’s post-metal overlords return to take you higher

Collaboration! Everybody’s at it these days, from Scott Walker and Sunn O))) to Johnny Mathis and Watain.

And now, so too are post-metal comeback kings Cult Of Luna, who have brought onboard former Made Out Of Babies and Battle Of Mice lead singer Julie Christmas for their seventh, cosmos-gazing studio effort. Following 2013’s astounding Isis-meets-Vangelis-in-Metropolis-like Vertikal LP and EP combo, Mariner leaves behind much of the cold, mechanised and occasionally industrial harshness of the city and instead aims its gaze directly towards outer space.
