Salvation

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stewart Mason
For their third album, Swedish prog metal stalwarts Cult of Luna added a seventh member, Anders Teglund, a second keyboardist who concentrates on samples and effects.

The near-ambient opening section of "Echoes" might even remind listeners of the Pink Floyd epic of the same title, and the closing track, "Into the Beyond," has a fluid, bass-led section that recalls some of Can's later work. These moments of musical respite only increase the power of the full-on metal onslaughts when they come in. Where many similar albums become numbing after a while, Salvation is strong without being bludgeoning.
