“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.
