“This album was a really difficult one to make. We pushed ourselves as songwriters and as musicians, but I think the extra focus we placed on crafting a complete, focused album really paid off. Every song plays into the larger whole while still being brutal and catchy, and we wrote much more concertedly this time around. Our goal was to make an album that pushes the extremes of [debut full-length] Atrophy as far as possible, and we’re really happy with the result.”

RIWEN (CULT OF LUNA) Streaming New EP

Swedish hardcore outfit Riwen (Cult of Luna, Sonic Ritual, etc) have premiered their new self-titled EP over at ZT Mag. The EP is three tracks of raw, unapologetic hardcore that hits where it hurts. On the new release, vocalist/guitarist Johannes Persson (Cult of Luna) comments:

“It’s a short and simple story: I got fed up with the big productions and long sound checks that comes with Cult Of Luna. So, it’s back to the roots of my salad days in Umeå. It’s time to make it simple, raw and fast. This is hardcore. I decided to write fourteen songs in fourteen days inspired by the bands I worshiped as vegan straight edge punk kid: Judge, Battery, Integrity, ACME and Damnation AD. The RIWEN concept is to not spend months in the studio and nitpick over every drumbeat and production details. The musical destruction has to be alive and direct, tailor-made to induce mosh mayhem and walls of death. I hooked up with [vocalist] Fredrik [Lindkvist] and [drummer] Christian [Augustin], both with a past in the crust/grind terror force Totalt Jävla Mörker. One rehearsal sealed the deal and we recorded three tracks in one night about to be released as a ten-inch vinyl on the Norwegian metal label Indie Recordings. Adding guitar player Marita [Jonsson Mätlik] and bass player Christoffer 138 [Röstlund Jonsson; DS-13, AC4, Epileptic Terror Attack, Sonic Ritual etc.] the lineup was complete. And thus, we are ready to slam dance all over the world. Are you ready? Tonight we ride!”
