“They embrace chaos, and wield it with a skill few can match.” – Revolver
“… a band that wasn’t afraid to tinker, deconstruct, or simply open up and let its guts spill out.” – Pitchfork
Salt Lake City’s Cult Leader have premiered a haunting new music video for their shapeshifting standout track from their forthcoming album A Patient Man. Watch the “To: Achlys” clip today via Revolver Magazine.
Recorded and engineered by Kurt Ballou at God City Studios (Converge, Nails, High On Fire), A Patient Man takes listeners on a sonic rollercoaster ride from moment one. The ten-song album is driven by a weave work of unorthodox metallic riffing and fueled by hyper-aggressive percussion. While the technical proficiency is impressive, it’s in their use of dynamics where Cult Leader truly shine. The album also contains four beautifully brooding epics; each one of them carries a maturation and sense of melody that few “extreme” bands have within their arsenal.
A Patient Man is available for preorder here, and Cult Leader will headline an extensive North American tour in support of the album this November and December.
