“A Patient Man”
November 9. Cult Leader is a chaotic band from Salt Lake City, Utah. A Patient Man was recorded and engineered by Kurt Ballou at God City Studios (Converge, Nails, High On Fire). From the first hits of opener “I Am Healed” Cult Leader take listeners on a sonic rollercoaster ride. Much of the album follows this blueprint. Songs like “Curse of Satisfaction”, “Craft of Mourning”, and “Share My Pain” are driven by a weave work of unorthodox metallic riffing and fueled by hyperaggressive percussion. While the technical proficiency is impressive, it’s in their use of dynamics where they truly shine. Proving that aggressive music still has much to offer the world in terms of originality, creativity, and emotion.
