“… 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 announced their sophomore LP, ‘A Patient Man’, which will be released November 9th on Deathwish. Listen to the pummeling album opener, I Am Healed via Revolver Magazine who called it: “claustrophobic, utterly terrifying.”
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 pre-order here. More news from Cult Leader coming soon.
