Jewel Case version
Swedish mood merchants Cult of Luna return with their amazing new album 'Somewhere Along the Highway', With the opening chords of 'Marching To The Heartbeats' contain the feeling that something awe inspiring is about to occur and over the next hour it certainly does. 'Somewhere Along the Highway' is the apocalyptic fourth full length from the Swedish group and it is unsurprisingly amazing, After the opening track both 'Finland' and 'Back To Chapel Town' are classic Cult of Luna cuts; hulking behemoths comprised of cascading mega riffs, empowered drumming and the magnificent roaring of Klas, Whilst the use of samplers and synthesizers in the music adds further layers as well as contributing to the orchestral feel of the compositions. 'And With Her Came the Birds' shows a more stripped down and experimental Cult of Luna, acoustic guitars and clean, quiet vocals set the tone which brings to mind a combination of Neurosis & Pelican with its calm yet emotional tone, This album is not a massive progression from 'Salvation', however, it is on the same spectacular scale and is Cult of Luna doing what they do best - belting out monolithic slabs of intensity.
