Eight months after the release of their latest album, “Der Endless Dream,” follows Radare’s “All Filler”, a 7″ with two songs created during the sessions of the album. While the album was conceived as an experimental blockbuster that worked its way through the trials and tribulations of adolescent yearnings, this latest single is more like a fragmentary short film that sheds light on two sides of a bipolar personality.
The sound of the songs with hypnotic western guitars, synthetic drones and soft brass sounds is this time a bit more hyped, feverish and paranoid. The mystery film that Radare used to set to music has now become a horror film.

Nice scorched-earth dark jazz that in an odd way reminds me of a more minimal, woozier, "Hex.." era Earth mixed with a stripped down Bohren & der Club of Gore, with all of its aloof, sultry hums, heroin-lounge and Dale Cooper cool. brantly
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
