Cult of Luna’s new album Vertikal just came out and of course I’ve been listening to it obsessively over the past week. This in turn prompted me to also revisit their back catalog, including 2009’s Fire Was Born DVD.
The main feature on the Fire Was Born is a full live concert filmed in London that perfectly captures the band at their prime while touring in support of their Eternal Kingdom album.
Whenever I watch Fire Was Born I keep coming back to one track again and again – “Dark City, Dead Man”. It pretty much encompasses everything I love about Cult of Luna over a sprawling fourteen plus minutes. I won’t bore you with trying to describe what is so great about the track – or Cult of Luna for that matter. Just watch the clip and you’ll see.
