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.

Bought as a present for my son, I've put it on my own iTunes and really enjoy it.
Not quite as coherent as "Vertikal" in stucture, but a visceral journey :)

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.
