If their new single “Isolation in the Land of Milk and Honey” is any indication, Salt Lake City band Cult Leader have an absolute ripper of an album just round the corner.
The towering track, all abraded vocals, ominous riffs and canny dynamism, is about “mental self-cannibalism,” as vocalist Anthony Lucero told Consequence of Sound, which premiered the track.
The song is taken from A Patient Man, Cult Leader’s sophomore album out tomorrow on Deathwish Inc. It was recorded and engineered by Kurt Ballou, Converge guitarist and go-to producer for crushingly great metal records—he’s been behind the boards for the likes of High on Fire and The Dillinger Escape Plan.
