Staff review by

I must start off this review with a confession.

I'd never listened to Cult Of Luna before.

Yeah, I realize that a post-atmo-sludge band is pushing the envelope outside the box in my wheelhouse, but never bothered. Was too busy exploring elsewhere and perhaps somewhere deep down I feared the band would sound all too similar to many of the post-it notes I've been reviewing for the last several years. (And, truthfully, I've checked out some of their tunes during the course of this endeavor and it seems I wasn't terribly far off the mark… they were a primary influence on those I reviewed, after all.)

  Nothing of the quality of the full length release which was awe-fucking-some.

Rating: 4 Very very disappionting compared to the album it self this album has nothing to offer but a long boring tracks full of noises unlike the album Vertikal it self that is a good post metal album

Rating: 8 ONWARD FORWARD ONWARD FORWARD - I love Light Chaser, it's so entrancing.

The EP's not as great as Vertikal, but I think it's a really interesting release in its own right
