Riff-Mag.com conducted an interview with Swedish "art rockers" CULT OF LUNA at this year's Hellfest, which was held June 21-23 in Clisson, France. You can now watch the chat below.The vinyl version of "Vertikal", the new album from CULT OF LUNA, was made available in the U.S. on March 26. Only 1,000 pieces were manufactured for retail and online purchase in the U.S. The gatefold LP was foil-numbered and priced significantly lower than the currently available import vinyl. "Vertikal" was released in Europe on January 25 via Indie Recordings and in the U.S. on January 29 through Density Records. In addition to the regular CD, there is a limited edition of "Vertikal", including one bonus track. According to a press release, "Vertikal" marks a much-anticipated return for the band after five years spent cultivating the ideas and directing the influences that have helped form a concept for the album. Distilled throughout are themes of machinery, repetition and clear, linear structures honed to the visual imagery of Fritz Lang's classic expressionist science fiction film "Metropolis". The music broods, builds and boils as you may expect from CULT OF LUNA, but never overcomplicates itself or veers from its intentions; it is arguably their finest and most cohesive piece of work to date.
