Uada's sophomore album Cult of a Dying Sun was released in 2018, just over two years since their debut album Devoid of Light. Cult of a Dying Sun is the kind of release where it's certainly a case of being more of the same but a band clearly also trying to do more with it, which is most immediately evident in the difference in total running time, almost fifty-six minutes compared to under thirty-four, although there are only two extra songs compared to the first record. Uada certainly tends to write songs with long track times and fortunately they have the song-writing skill to back up what might be seen as overly indulgent in a lesser group. Cult of a Dying Sun is perhaps slightly less effective as a whole than the band's first album, but it's a worthy follow-up to a top tier debut.
