Just Passing Through
It certainly seems like a lot of the “metal” I’ve been posting about recently could hardly be considered metal at all in the traditional sense. Take this awesomely eerie new video from Swedish band Cult of Luna. It’s the final track on the recently released “Vertikal” album and is easily the most subdued track on the album, and although it isn’t heavy in any way, it is a beautifully fitting closer for the epic LP filled with sweeping post-metal, sludge grooves, hardcore, indie rock, and, for the first time on a CoL album, a heavy dose of electronic keyboard arrangements that brings krautrock to mind.
Although it isn’t my favorite song on the album, I highly suggest you check out this video for “Passing Through”, for the fact alone that it was reportedly shot in an abandoned mental hospital in the band’s native Sweden. If it strikes your fancy please do yourself a favor and get the entire album, which is already one of the year’s best new albums in my opinion.
