Swedish post-metallers Cult Of Luna have released the video for their latest single "Passing Through". The track is taken from the band's sixth album "Vertikal" which is the first record from the group in five years. The clip was shot in sub-zero temperatures in the ruins of Sweden's largest mental hospital, which closed in 1960.
The "Vertikal" album is a concept record, in part based on Fritz Lang's 1927 science-fiction film Metropolis. Speaking of the record, the band had the following to say:
"Before we started writing, we were keen to find a theme that in a very direct way could be shown through the music, and we hope to have achieved this. We developed clear structures - very linear, refusing to over complicate the writing process."
The tracklisting for the album is as follows:
01. The One
02. I: The Weapon
03. Vicarious Redemption
04. The Sweep
06. Mute Departure
08. In Awe Of
09. Passing Through
10. The Flow Reversed
