Band: Cult of Luna
Label: Indie Recordings
Genre: Progressive metal, post-metal, heavy metal
Sweden’s Cult of Luna are a band who when they come to town, everyone knows it’s an event. They’re the band you’d take the day off work for, you’d leave the kids with a babysitter for and a band who are worth the cost of the travel and ticket. As one of the most consistently amazing live acts currently touring, give the gift of Cult of Luna this Christmas. They’ve had an amazing year, they nearly sold out their 10th Anniversary tour of Somewhere Along The Highway (the London show was one of the best shows of the year), played Roadburn and Damnation and released an amazing collaboration with Julie Christmas called Mariner. Cult of Luna are one of the greatest bands to walk the earth and with Vertikal in 2013 released one of the albums of the decade. In my opinion they are the greatest post-metal band of all time and a band that pushes the boat out more than a lifeguard, a truly inventive collective of musicians.
