Cult of the Lost Cause
Some metal is for blasting and moshing, and some is for quiet introspection. Cult of the Lost Cause falls into the latter category, and does it with style. Its instrumental post-metal stylings are rhythmic and relaxing, but also hard-hitting, utilizing slow, chugging riffs that dredge up dark and sobering emotions. The band’s latest release, Contritions, dismally takes the listener on an angst-filled ride through regret and loneliness. Tracks like the epic “Wall of Bones” and “Hessian Crucible” will leave fans yearning for more live shows and another release in 2017.
