CULT OF LUNA is a swedish Heavy Metal, Hardcore band from Umeå founded in 1998. They are known for Post Metal music similar to the contemporary bands like NEUROSIS and ISIS. The band was signed to EARACHE RECORDS in the early 2000s and released five albums, including the commercially successful albums "Salvation" (2004) and "Somewhere Along the Highway" (2006). After an extended period of inactivity, CULT OF LUNA returned with its Indie Recordings debut "Vertikal" (2013) and companion EP Vertikal II (2013), both drawing inspiration from Fritz Lang's 1927 film, Metropolis. In 2016 the band released their space-themed seventh album, "Mariner", featuring American vocalist Julie Christmas. Building on twenty years of creating some of the most epic, emotive and inventive heavy music unleashed on the world, there is no denying that CULT OF LUNA´s "A Dawn To Fear", the bands´ new album 2019, is a monster of a record. An album comprised of eight tracks running seventy-nine minutes, it embodies everything the band's faithful have come to expect from them while covering new ground. "We knew exactly the album we wanted to make, and that was the antithesis of everything we've done before," says vocalist / guitarist and lead songwriter Johannes Persson. "For pretty much every album there's been a very concrete theme. We've known from the start the kind of story we wanted to tell, and I didn't want that to be the case. I've seen a lot of subtle changes and patterns in my own behavior and my own thinking the last couple of years, and I wanted this to be a completely spontaneous process. I just wanted to see what came out of me, and "A Dawn To Fear" is the result of that."
Limited edition of 300 numbered copies on Light Orange / Red Marbled vinyl, this double album comes in a nice gatefold sleeve (with the first version of the cover artwork) with twenty pages book in LP size and download card.
