Official press release:
With their mind-melting eighth epos, Cult Of Luna and Julie Christmas bring you to the outer rim of the ever expanding boundaries of the cosmos – where the rules of man is not applicable and the cold, dark nothing envelops the harsh realities of the universe.
Mariner will be released on April 8th via Indie Recordings. Drums and bass were recorded by Magnus Lindberg at Tonteknik Recording Umeå, Sweden with additional recordings by Kristian Karlsson at Studio Hufvudstaden in Söderköping, Sweden. Julie Christmas’ vocals were produced and engineered by Andrew Schneider at Translator Audio and Loho Studios in New York City, the entire five-track gem mixed and mastered by Magnus Lindberg at Redmount Studios in Stockholm, Sweden. Mariner will be available on CD, LP and vinyl with pre-orders available at the following locations. Amazon here. iTunes here. Indie Shop here.
Sample opening track “A Greater Call” below:
Offers the band of the track:
“‘A Greater Call’ is the link between the city and the void above. Imagine walking up to your vessel. How the excitement grabs hold of you. The feeling of uncertainty. Are you even going to be able to push through the atmosphere in one piece? A last breathe before blast off and then we leave. The song is about how humanity is cutting its losses and leave. Its only hope lies above.”
