Below is our complete Culted news coverage, including columns and articles pertaining to the band. Some articles listed may be indirectly related, such as side projects of the band members, etc.
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.
