Cult of Luna are a band that's been about building a song through repetition over a fairly lengthy amount of time, yet they aren't too afraid to play parts and songs for as long as they want to.
On 'The Beyond', there's a sense of confidence in this album, and as a result, everything is in its perfect place, as it adds a lot of different influences, kinda like Earth or Sunn O))) mixed with Neurosis. From the intoxicating opening to songs like "Circle" to the emotional elements of "The Watchtower", nothing on here gets lost in the inspired noise that the band creates. 'The Beyond' likes to offer variations in its sound as well. "Genesis" and "Leash" are good examples of this with its tendencies to alternate between heavy and mellow passages, as well as the almost country-esque slide guitar intro to "Circles" or the beautiful backwards-guitar driven "Clones".
With its 10 songs altogether lasting 74 minutes, there's a lot to take in, but 'The Beyond''s multiple layers of sound ensures that you will hear something new every time.
