With ‘Ambiance’, Ølten step away from the binary formula, in favor grit, nuance, and ruthlessness. The result is a corporal convulsion, leaving behind chronic cramps, heavy breathing, and a sickening feeling deep down in the gut.

Another brilliant post-metal entry into the metal hall of fame by Cult of Luna. Is it a surprise it's so good? Maybe not, but it doesn't make it any less of an achievement. Best to listen to it in one sitting for the richest reward. Highly recommended. Fraz
