The debut studio album from Swedish avant-rock behemoths Cult Of Luna is finally released on vinyl as part of Earaches 'First Time on Vinyl' campaign, which aims to plug the gaps in the Earache catalogue previously unavailable on wax. Besides being pressed for the first time there is exclusive vinyl only artwork by guitarist Erik Olofsson and the album has been specially remastered by producer Pelle Henricsson (Refused, Hell Is For Heroes) as if this wasn't enough three of the songs have been extended solely for this vinyl version. "Originally released in 2001 on cult London Label, Rage of Achilles, Cult of Luna's crushing debut thrust them into the limelight and exposed their brand of apocalyptic noisecore to the masses. Taking their cues from bands such a as Unsane and Neurosis, Cult of Luna add a few more dimensions to the sludgy bombast of the former bands. Adding a subtle element of melody and depth that not many bands of this ilk could muster up even if they joined forces and formed into one giant Noisecore Transformer.'
