But the 'Choice of Weapon' album is much more than a revival of past glories, it's also a chance for the band to show their range and experiment without going overboard. Wilderness Now' is one of the disc's more intriguing moments. It's one of the slower cuts on the record and it really takes hold with the band's string backing. And 'Life/Death' may be one of the bigger curveballs on the release, as it feels like it has a '50s era pacing, but the Cult give it their own modern stamp. Lyrically the song has substance as well as Astbury debates the essence of a man. In Loudwire's recent interview with Billy Duffy, he told us that the chemistry within the band was as good as it's ever been and that Astbury has been really excited with the new music. Duffy was so enthused that he added of the disc, "This one's pretty much a winner from the get g.

Welcome to Choice of Weapon. The Cult were always most significant to me when they wove their mystical, psychedelic vibe through their Gothic past, and force-bottled that whole thing through a cannon of pure rock. Love did this, and even tossed in some killer beats, like "She Sells Sanctuary" that could get my ass moving fervently enough to match my embarrassing air-guitar postures. And Choice of Weapon brings it all back. Honey From a Knife" wastes no time re-presenting The Cult as hungry and passionate. It sounds like Astbury took all the lessons he learned from his solo album Spirit/Light/Speed and blended it with the classic sound of The Cult to bring out the band at their most mystical and impressive. As the song builds, Duffy's guitar layers on, with that perfect Cult tone. The whole thing builds and escalates, dips, slows, then takes off once again.

Choice of Weapon will likely have Cult devotees-and newbies alike-in disbelief that it’s been almost 30 years since the band broke onto the scene. Written by the principal and founding members Billy Duffy and Ian Astbury, the album was recorded between July and December 2011 in a handful of locales before the finishing touches were applied by long-time Cult r Bob Rock. Backed by drummer John Tempesta and bassist Chris Wyse, the hallmark guitar work of Duffy and haunting colors of Astbury’s shamanic voice on Choice of Weapon will likely have Cult devotees-and newbies alike-in disbelief that it’s been almost 30 years since the band broke onto the scene.
Comparing " Choice Of Weapon " with Slash 's recent effort is quite interesting. Mainly because you can listen to Slash and think it was great but you knew he'd do that. Duffy 's playing is arguably more diverse, as it has been over his career, and " Choice Of Weapon " is quite the shocker, especially coming from a band who were written off by most people many years ago. This album won't sell like " Apocalyptic Love ", but that goes for most Cult albums.
