Cult Of Luna "The Beyond" LP


The second studio album by Swedish post-metal band Cult of Luna, released in 2003. The subject matter is dissent with authorities, similar in some ways to contemporaries Isis' Panopticon. This album sees the rawness of the self-titled debut channeled into a cleaner sounding and more crisply produced sound. The tempo is slowed and the feeling is of a more expansive, reflective album, which almost bridges the gap between Cult of Luna and Salvation, leaning more towards the former (elements of which can be heard in "Arrival", "Leash" and "Deliverance", whilst "Circle" has the most similarity to the latter).
