So how did the idea for a split EP came about?
“We’ve been a fan of the band since the Feast On Your Gone LP”, says CULT OF LUNA’s Johannes Persson, “and we played with Tomas back in ’99, when he was in Breach. We are from roughly the same area and originated from the same scene so it feels like the bands are connected in some way. Hopefully we’ll be able to take this northern whirlwind on the road sometime.”
The title of the EP, Råångest, means “raw anxiety” in Swedish. LA-based German artist Florian Bertmer drew the cover which perfectly reflects this state of mind… the sheer walls of well, from the perspective of someone trapped at the bottom of it.
