Cult Leader 'Lightless Walk' (album stream)

Cult Leader 'Lightless Walk' (album stream)
The previews to Cult Leader's Lightless Walk have been an exercise in sheer brutality so far, but now the Salt Lake City band are upping the ante by delivering a fully-damaging, all-album preview a week ahead of its official release. If you're ready, their debut album is streaming online.

Already, we'd heard the lightning-crack "Suffer Louder" and the deceptively rapturous "Sympathetic." Now, brace yourself for brickbat beatings like "Great I Am," which likewise attacks via Anthony Lucero's harrowing musings on isolation, and the cement-thick boot stomp of "The Sorrower."

Elsewhere, you've got near-Botch-style tech aggression like "Walking Wastelands" and comparatively softer but still devastating pieces like the half-sung "A Good Life."

You can check it all out below, via Noisey. As previously reported, Lightless Walk touches down October 16 via Deathwish Inc.
