Umeå-based metal band Cult of Luna played at Parkteatret for a sold out show on Wednesday.
It’s hard to name their music style, probably best to call it Doom/Post metal with a really, really heavy (but crystal clear) sound.
Being part of their European tour for their latest album A Dawn of Fear, they opened the show with the 10 minute long album opener, «The Silent Man». Putting the main emphasis on the latest albums, they put up a magical show and delivered according to expectations.
They are not a band to talk in between songs and have small chats with the audience, neither would they come back for an encore. This is Cult of Luna, and they’re best at managing to make you feel both miserable and peaceful whilst showing you the grief of our futile existence.
The support bands this evening was This Gift Is A Curse (SE) and Attan (NO).
