Cult of Luna and Julie Christmas have premiered a new track from their upcoming collaborative record, Mariner, at Stereogum. The new track is the leviathanic “The Wreck of S.S. Needle”, which features over nine minutes of post-metal glory. The track starts off slow with ominous soundscapes and Christmas‘ recognizable crooning. After about a minute the song explodes into thunderous melancholic sludge as Christmas shreds her vocal chords to bits. The song is similar to Christmas‘ short-lived Battle of Mice project, but arguably more vicious. Check out the towering track after the break.
Mariner will be released on April 15 via Indie Recordings.
