On March 20, the band announced signing a deal with Metal Blade Records and first batch of European tour dates scheduled for Autumn Cult of Luna's sound has progressed from early material being heavily doom metal influenced to one much less aggressive and more concerned with orchestration.
Fans and critics have termed this sound post-metal. The band is considered to be at the forefront of the genre, along with contemporary proponents Neurosis and Isis. Its songs are often long, slow, repetitive and crushing, heavy sections of distorted guitars often interspersed with orchestral interludes and extended, post-rock -esque forays. The group shuns conventional song structures, opting for a sound that evolves throughout a song, sometimes toward a climactic crescendoinstead of a verse-chorus-verse pattern.
That style, incorporating sections of "light and dark" into their music, has led to comparisons with contemporaries such as Isis with whom they have touredCallisto and Pelicanas well as the significantly older Neurosis. Former singer Klas Rydberg, however, has stated that decidedly Radiohead are an influence.
As the band progressed, the imagery they employed became less overt and less " doom metal ". In some ways, the albums showed a shift from anger with modern society as in Cult of Lunato disgust with the ruling parties in The Beyond and Salvation.

Your Point Of View Has Dematerialized - Expose Your Eyes - Untitled concerns are addressed in contemporaries Isis' Panopticoncentered on the theme of Big Brother -like government surveillance.
Early Gideon Jackson - Tribal Experiments / Taj-Mahal made Christian references; to the devilFaust  and the four horsemen of the apocalypse. Over the course of the following albums, these seem to have disappeared, though Salvation does have overarching spiritual themes.
Somewhere Along the Highway is slightly different from the previous releases in its thematic basis. It focuses on personal matters, specifically male loneliness,  instead of macroscopic concerns addressed in the previous albums. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Cult of Luna.
