Cult Of Luna - Somewhere Along The Highway

I have to say that I was excited to hear this. Chris must of not realized he gave it to me since it says Cult Of Luna Really small towards the bottom .

Cult Of Luna formed around 1998 with guitarist Johannes Persson and vocalist Klas Rydberg wanted to explore new ideas in music. They hail from Umea Sweden wich also boasts bands as varied as DS-13, Meshuggah and Refused.

Melodic and heavy as hell, but not chug-chug heavy, Somewhere Along the Highway is wonderfully recorded. The fouth album from Sweden's Cult Of Luna delivers massive sonic stimulation. Some of the songs are almost trace-like and melancholy while some songs thunder as if its the last song they'll ever play. I even think i heard a banjo on it. Lots of delay and bass wich i love in bands. The vocals remind me of early Nerousis.

I could go on and on about how good this album is. It is aptly named too, since you could just listen to this album and drive forever. The only downside is that the promo cd I have has cut the tracks to 99 and there are voiceovers every five minutes or so.

this album is really good, but I still think I prefer Salvation. I'll need to listen to this one a few more times.
