After much anticipation and excitement, ETERNAL KINGDOM, the epic new album
from Swedish art-rockers CULT OF LUNA is out now in the US!

Based on an actual journal found in an old mental home, ETERNAL KINGDOM
takes listeners on a twisted journey through the mind of a former patient as
he tells the tale of how his wife came to be murdered and of the mythical
creatures he claims to have encountered during the time of the harrowing
event. ETERNAL KINGDOM will take you to places so deep within the mind that
you may not ever be able to leave.

CULT OF LUNA's heaviest and most thought provoking album yet has already
caused a big stir within the industry. "Epic," says Alternative Press who
gives ETERNAL KINGDOM 4.5 Stars. Decibel gave ETERNAL KINGDOM an 8/10,
calling it "breathtaking." With such high praise, it's clear that this album
is no ordinary release. It's something special that will be examined for
years to come.

The follow-up to 2006's P3 award-winning SOMEWHERE ALONG THE HIGHWAY,
ETERNAL KINGDOM is the fifth album from CULT OF LUNA and was recorded at
Tonteknik Studios in the band's hometown of Umea with producer MAGNUS

ETERNAL KINGDOM is available as limited edition digipak CD, regular edition
CD and limited edition gatefold double vinyl LP. Purchase your copy now from
