CULT OF LUNA Gets Remixed By Justin BroadrickThursday, 23rd May 2013
Sweden’s CULT OF LUNA have released a new remix from legendary artist and producer Justin Broadrick (GODFLESH, JESU). Broadrick tackles the 18+ minute track, ‘Vicarious Redemption’, from Cult Of Luna’s recent studio album, Vertikal. Fans can stream or download the track below.
“It was both a pleasure and a challenge to work on such an sprawling epic song,” Broadrick commented. “(There was) so much material to choose from and to attempt to refocus in my own context, and a challenge to make something new and concise which resonates like the original.”
“When I was 14 years old, my friend taught my how to play guitar,” adds Cult of Luna’s Johannes Persson. “We spent hours listening to songs and then trying to play them. One of the records he had was the Streetcleaner LP that since has been continuously in my rotation for almost 20 years, so listening to Justin’s remix of ‘Vicarious Redemption’ kind of felt like going full circle. Justin has created something new with the elements of the song which, in my opinion, is the only way to justify a remix.”
CULT OF LUNA’s Vertikal was released this winter.
