Cult of Luna
Played at Graspop Metal Meeting
2014 / 2019


Post metal




The seven-headed post-metal monster Cult of Luna made its Graspop debut in 2014. Over the years, the sound of this Swedish band has evolved from heavily doom-influenced material to a less aggressive form of metal with orchestral interludes, which is one of the reasons why they are often named as one of the pioneers of post-metal - think dark, ponderous, repetitive and crushing guitars that erect a gigantic wall of sound. Former Made Out of Babies and Battle of Mice lead singer Julie Christmas appears as a guest singer throughout their most recent album ‘Mariner’ (2016) which, according to the band’s press release, is a “figurative journey through the cosmos”. The live DVD for the album was shot in Kortrijk and captures the essence of the band. (#GMM19)
