With their mind-melting eighth epos, CULT OF LUNA and Julie Christmas bring you to the outer rim of the ever expanding boundaries of the cosmos — where the rules of man is not applicable and the cold, dark nothing envelops the harsh realities of the universe. For their eight effort, the post-metal pioneers join forces with the talented Julie Christmas (BATTLE OF MICE, MADE OUT OF BABIES) from Brooklyn, whom bring an even larger depth to CULT OF LUNA's sound — powerfully displayed on "Mariner".
Fish was the unique voice and mastermind behind progressive rock legends Marillion and on this recording he is captured at his best live. 'For Whom the Bells Toll', is an amazing testament to Fish's special live magic which he conjures up so brilliantly. With sleevenotes written by Fish, the recording was straight to tape and was made on New Years Eve in 1991 at the Edinburgh Playhouse. The line up consisted of Fish (vocals), Frank Usher (Guitar), Robin Boult (Bass), David Paton (bass), Mickey Simmonds (keyboards) and Kevin Wilkinson (drums). David Paton played with Pilot and featured on Kate Bush's first two albums and has also worked with Rick Wakeman. Mickey Simmonds has worked with Mike Oldfield and Kevin Wilkinson has played with China Crisis and Squeeze. This CD was originally issued only to the fan club for mail order sale but is finally available to the retail record buying public. As an added bonus this double CD is priced as for a single which offers great music at great value.
