Blackened doomhounds Culted today crush all your hopes and dreams with "Transmittal," currently murking up the sound sphere at Pitchfork.com here.
The soul-suffocating anti-hymn comes courtesy of the band's "Oblique To All Paths" long player, scheduled for release via Relapse Records later this month.Comments Michael Klassen (guitar/bass/percussion/noise) of the track:
"'Transmittal' is like the title suggests, a song intended to transmit an experience to the listener. Initially, it may lull the mind with hypnotic effects and repetition perhaps blurring vision and numbing consciousness. But it awakens with a scream to spark a flame and illuminate the world with fire, while scorching the wings of angels to finally reveal the collapse and coldness of space to the listener."
The band's previously posted track "Illuminati" can also be heard over at this location.
Today, blackened doomsmiths Culted drop new track "Illuminati" upon the holiday-addled masses. The tune comes by way of the band's "Oblique To All Paths" long player, slated for release via Relapse Records early next year.
Elaborates the band's Michael Klassen (guitar/bass/percussion/noise) of the record: "Oblique to All Paths is the culmination of Culted's collective experience over the past five years. As artists and musicians, we're acting as interpreters of our environment, if you will. We've all been subjected to mythmakers and storytellers, shamans and charlatans in life. 'Illuminati' strives to skeptically dissect these deceptive belief systems and explore them using sound." More...
Canadian black/doom act Culted posted a preview clip from the upcoming new album "Oblique to All Paths." The album is set for release on January 17, 2013 (Benelux, Germany, Finland), January 20, 2013 (UK/World on CD/LP/Digital) and January 21, 2013 (North America) via Relapse Records. Pre-orders can be made at this location.
Culted’s story is a unique one: 4 band members spread out over multiple countries and continents, having never performed music together in the same room coming together through the wonders of modern technology to create totally compelling top of the line doom. While Culted’s writing and recording process may be unusual, and a story unto itself, it certainly should not overshadow what this band has accomplished---creating a bleak and epic masterpiece of dystopian doom. Cinematic in its scope, "Oblique To All Paths" is a beautifully haunting and grim piece of sprawling doom metal—the perfect soundtrack to a desolate, barren winter.
