CULT OF LUNA: New Video Interview With JOHANNES PERSSON Posted Online

Founder and guitarist Johannes Persson of Swedish art-rockers CULT OF LUNA was recently interviewed by UK's Kerrang! magazine about the group's forthcoming "Eternal Kingdom" album. Watch the six-minute chat below.

Due on on June 16 in Europe and July 8 in the U.S. via Earache Records, "Eternal Kingdom" the fifth full-length CD from CULT OF LUNA was recorded at Tonteknik Studios in the band's hometown of Ume and was produced by Magnus Lindberg. The follow-up to 2006's "Somewhere along the Highway" is said to be a much heavier and darker affair than previous albums.

CULT OF LUNA recently posted the "Eternal Kingdom" title track on the band's MySpace page.

The "Eternal Kingdom" artwork also has a deep connection to the music contained within.

"The artwork is inspired by old woodcuts and it is definitely the right way of maintain and amplify the harshness of the 'Eternal Kingdom'," said the band. "With the Man/Owl king in the middle, it is a perfect visual representation of how the album is going to sound."
