4.0 out of 5 stars Rise and Fall, Rage and Grace 13 July 2008
By Matt Pucci VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Crassly dismissed by some as mere Isis copyists, Swedish eight-piece Cult of Luna have been plying their apocalyptic, post-metal wares for some time now; having released their self-titled debut in 2001, they are now on album number five - one more than their Californian-based counterparts - and Eternal Kingdom marks a further evolvement of the band's sound. Granted, it may lack the sheer sonic vastness of that first album and its flawless follow-up, 2003's The Beyond, and it doesn't quite match the crushing emotional intensity of Salvation. Nevertheless, it retains many of the features of all three records (notably, the distinctive if slightly one-dimensional vocals and the slow, build-to-climax song structures) as well as building on the experimentalism and integration of melody exhibited on 2006's Somewhere Along the Highway. Third track, 'Ghost Trail' is a perfect distillation of the band's current mindset: a wholly cathartic ten-minute mini-epic that contains impossibly uplifting passages of textured melody, followed by a sombre reprieve, before climaxing with a jaw-dropping display of thunderous rage. Further into Eternal Kingdom, however, you may be surprised to hear digital 'bleeps' and other flourishes of electronic experimentation; fear not, though, for Cult of Luna have not gone all techno or arty on us, as everything this band does has a moving, human quality to it. Rarely does music affect the listener on both an emotional and physical level, to such an extent, but these sumptuous Swedes seem to manage it every time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful! 19 Feb 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Beautiful, raging, textured, cathartic, apocalyptic, drifting, pounding, vast, epic, satisfying, brutal and delicate. Don't let a bit of shouting put you off - there's cliche'd sore-throat bands and there is emotional cathartic outpouring which is a different thing and sounds to me very natural. The whole thing to me seems more organic and real compared to bands this has been compared to.
The DVD itself is worth the price and captures a great gig - the sound quality is perfect. Put it through the stereo, it shakes the walls. Great to see the interaction of two drummers and three guitarists, you can appreciate more how well crafted this stuff is.

5.0 out of 5 stars the biz 1 July 2008
Format:Audio CD
I can't believe no one has reviewed this yet? This is definitely worth getting if your a fan of the finer things in life, if you prefer catchy commercial stay clear as this beast of an album is really going to grow on you. Like ISIS they're making some of the most forward thinking music available these days-restore your faith in music, it's an awesome piece of work!

5.0 out of 5 stars Devastating yet intensely beautiful. 9 July 2008
By David J. Warren - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Cult of Luna have been improving little by little with every release. Eternal Kingdom finds the band possibly at the top of their game. This release is haunting, beautiful and devastating all at the same time. Cult of Luna manages to craft lush soundscapes that transcend typical heavy guitar music. At the same time, CoL manages to bring in a few absolutely crushing parts at key times in the movement of the album. The lyrical content was taken from the journal of a madman while the music was crafted around the eerie feel that such a journal could invoke.

5.0 out of 5 stars Knows No Bounds 26 July 2008
By drawesome - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Guaranteed to blow your mind or your money back! It is rare to find a band that continues to evolve, push, and progress like their lives depended on it. Not in the business of letting down, CoL delivers 10 tracks of complete magnificence. Whether you're a CoL loyalist, a fairly new member, just passively passing by, or perhaps discovering Sweden's greatest export for the first time, obtaining the Eternal Kingdom should be your top priority. I am about to mention bands to use as a reference only. I am not comparing. Perfect flow throughout, nothing in excess, crisp consistent vocals in the vein of Isis and Rosetta, guitars like that of Russian Circles and Red Sparrowes, and some random sounds similar to Neurosis, NIN, or a video game of sorts that takes place in space. CD booklet has all lyrics as well as curious detailed drawings on each page made to look and feel like an old story book. The Eternal Kingdom is a beautiful, inspiring, and hardcore journey worth seeking for I assure you.

4.0 out of 5 stars Luna's Kingdom 3 Aug 2008
By C. J. Marshall - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I must have been under a rock. I had no idea this album was even coming. In that respect I had no expectations. Of all the "Disciples of Neurot" Cult of Luna is my favorite. They aren't too heavy on pretense, and their writing is phenomenal.

This album is typical Luna. Slow heavy riffs, Hardcore vocals, dark brooding dramatic atmosphere...this is where they excel above many other groups. This album has plenty of that. Where I have trouble with this record is the songs in general. Where is my "Circle" or "Echoes"? What about "Thirtyfour" or "Dark City Dead Man"?

Besides track 3 "Ghost Trail" nothing grabbed me in the manner that the other albums did. Granted, there is a concept and theme (both lyrically and musically) and they've executed it perfectly. This album just doesn't speak to me like the others have. Still, it's heads and shoulders above your average metal. I'd recommend any of their records in a heartbeat.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cult of Luna's Darkest Album 11 Oct 2008
By pray_for_mojo - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
As metal bands age and progress, the general tendency seems to be that the music gets lighter and more commercial with each successive release. Then there is Cult of Luna, who with their fifth album "Eternal Kingdom" have released what is arguably their darkest, heaviest, and most complex work to date.

This album in not light in any sense of the word, and even though I am a massive Cult of Luna fan, it still took me a while to really get into this album. There are lot of slow, plodding, monster riffs here, combined with tempo changes and other nuances that are all awesome once you pick them up, but also act as a barrier of inaccessibility. Personally, I find that this album has some issues with the overall flow that the previous two did not. It's just not as easy to listen to this one straight through.

But they make up for it and then some with "Ghost Trail," which ranks up there with the best songs Cult of Luna have ever done. When this song ramps up to full steam, the band seems to somehow find another gear of intensity. The way they layer the guitar on this song creates a new sound for Cult of Luna that I wish they had explored more on this album.

Eternal Kingdom is good, but it doesn't quite stack up to "Somewhere Along the Highway" and it is definitely no "Salvation." Don't get me wrong: the album is dark, heavy, and awesome. Cult of Luna only comes up short when you compare it to Cult of Luna.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best album of 2008. 13 Jan 2009
By Joel Dahmen - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Yes, even more than obZen. A perfect marriage of music and corresponding artwork, including concept. Beautiful production and thematic recurrence. This band is now it's own fully original entity. No more comparisons to Isis. Eternal Kingdom is on par with the best of the "post metal" albums you know you love. Listen to it on acid for an even deeper experience. That's right... ACID.
