Cult Of Luna Announces New Album Details

Cult Of Luna have confirmed that the band's brand new album is entitled 'Salvation'. This, the bands third album, follows on from the critically acclaimed 'The Beyond,' and is due to be released on Monday 4th October 2004.

Recorded again at the famous Tonteknik Studios in Sweden and produced by Magnus Lindberg, the album is described by guitarist Johannes Persson as "a natural progression for the band, but we hope it will appeal to a much broader audience than the previous two releases, as the tracks are much more melody-based, having Anders in the band has allowed us to use fewer samples this time and has meant our musical skills have improved immensely so we can push our music forward!"

Persson continues; "Salvation is definitely a heavy album, but we have learnt that you don't need 100 guitars to be heavy, we've been much more diverse in our use of sounds, they have more depth this time - fewer walls of sound and more soundscapes! In keeping with Cult of Luna tradition 'Salvation' will not be a short affair, as Persson explains that "one problem we have is that we have one song to many! You can only fit 74 minutes on a CD so we're having to cut one song off!"

If you saw Cult of Luna on any of their UK and European tours last year then you will have already heard one of the tracks to be included on "Salvation" - their set ender, the 13 minute epic "Waiting For You."
