Cult Leader "Sympathetic"

Cult Leader 'Sympathetic'
Salt Lake City devastators Cult Leader knocked us out a few weeks back with their Lightless Walk preview "Suffer Louder." Perhaps understanding our plight, they've now unveiled another teaser track, titled "Sympathetic." That said, it's still going to smash you right between the ears.

A deftly damaged front end delivers aggressive blasts, shards of detuned guitar noise and psyche-wounding growls from frontman Anthony Lucero. Here, he details the darkness consuming our insides. A mid-track reprieve arrives with a gigantic but gorgeous burst of melody, itself a revelation, the peek of light through the black cloud.

Cathartic and crushing, the track can be found below, via Metal Sucks. Lightless Walk strolls into our lives October 16 via Deathwish Inc.
