Since releasing their debut EP Nothing For Us Here and their 7″ EP Useless Animal, Cult Leader have gotten angrier, heavier, and much more pissed off. Cult Leader released the first single off of their upcoming debut album titled “Lightless Walk” which is coming out on October 16th (my birthday is the 13th if someone wants to be kind enough to send me the album as a gift ;)) and we at Heavy Blog are excited to hear it.
The first single released off of Lightless Walk is titled “Suffer Louder,” and let me tell you, the song title fits. Once the song starts, no matter how happy or angry you were before listening, everything changes and you suddenly want to smash everything to the ground. Cult Leader are honestly one of my favorite heavy bands, and they should be one of yours, too. They’re one of those bands whose albums can sound the same, but it would be okay because they’re masters of their craft. That’s not to say Lightless Walk is going to sound the same as the 2 EPs before, but Cult Leader’s heaviness and abrasiveness will forever remain.

Make sure you catch Cult Leader on tour this fall. And we mean it. You’ll regret missing the show.
