Sweden’s post metal act Cult of Luna provide a glimpse of their new record, The Long Road North. “Cold Burn,” the first taste of ‘Luna’s eighth studio album, is available for you to experience down below, while the full album will see its release on Metal Blade Records on February 11th.
Pre-orders for that album are available now.
The music video and album tie into a game. Here is what Cult Of Luna says of it:
“The music video for ‘Cold Burn‘ is directed and produced by North Kingdom Greenhouse. We have done many music video projects over the years, always aiming to find a unique angle. With the brief we got from the band, we saw an attractive creative opportunity to explore what we believe will be the future of music video creation—combining music with real-time technology and interactive storytelling.
The video for ‘Cold Burn‘ will be followed by an immersive game experience where fans can immerse themselves in this unique visual world we created for the album called The Long Road North.
Building the experience in Unreal Engine allows us to invite fans as the hero of the story to explore the music video in their unique way. The song is adaptive to how you navigate the world, so every time you play the music video game, you will get a different experience. The project is an innovative collaboration between Cult Of Luna, North Kingdom, and Arctic Game Lab, and developed by a team of game designers, 3D artists, and musicians in the north of Sweden.”
