CULT OF LUNA'S JOHANNES PERSSON EXPLAINS ETERNAL KINGDOM SONGS
With the release date drawing nearer for ETERNAL KINGDOM - the brand new album from Swedish art-rockers CULT OF LUNA - the hype is growing and the story behind the album is certainly adding to the excitement.
Based on an actual journal found in an old mental home, ETERNAL KINGDOM takes listeners on a weird and wonderful journey through the mind of a former patient as he tells the tale of how his wife came to be murdered and of the mythical creatures he claims to have encountered during the time of the harrowing event.
CULT OF LUNA guitarist JOHANNES PERSSON recently gave a track-by-track explanation of the songs from the upcoming album. To hear JOHANNES discussing the meanings behind the songs over exclusive clips from the songs themselves, head to www.myspace.com/cultoflunaeternalkingdom
The fifth album from CULT OF LUNA, ETERNAL KINGDOM was recorded at Tonteknik Studios in the band's hometown of Umea and was produced by MAGNUS LINDBERG. The follow-up to 2006's P3 award-winning SOMEWHERE ALONG THE HIGHWAY, ETERNAL KINGDOM is set to be a much heavier and darker affair than previous albums.
ETERNAL KINGDOM will be released on June 16th in the UK/Europe and July 8th in the USA.
