2016 collaboration between Swedish post-metal band and New York vocalist Julie Christmas (Made Out Of Babies and Battle Of Mice). Serving as Cult of Luna's seventh studio album and the first time Christmas has appeared on the entirety of a full-length album since her 2010 solo debut The Bad Wife, Mariner focuses it's concept on space exploration. With their mind-melting eighth epos, Cult of Luna and Julie Christmas bring you to the outer rim of the ever expanding boundaries of the cosmos, where the rules of man are not applicable and the cold, dark nothing envelops the harsh realities of the universe. Cult of Luna was founded in 1998. They often perform post-metal music similar to the contemporary bands Neurosis and Isis.
