Cultic and Crucial Blast Unite: The Expanded Epic of ‘Seducer’
As the cold winds of February 2020 howled outside the Shadow Frost Music and Arts Fest, a prophecy was unknowingly being painted into existence. Amidst the cacophony of metal and the gathering of like-minded souls, our drummer and artist, Rebecca, was live-painting what would become the iconic cover for our latest offering, “Seducer”. Little did we know, that this very artwork would ultimately find its destined home with Crucial Blast Records who happened to be sharing a booth directly across from us that day.
Crucial Blast is a titan defining the underground music culture for a quarter of a century and we couldn’t be more excited to be working with the label to release the Seducer (Expanded Edition) EP.
Along with the tracks Seducer and Seduced, the Seducer (Expanded Edition) EP includes the early demo version of Seduced, and bonus material including Prowler (Demo), Cruel Orders (Demo), The Conqueror (Live), and Seducer (Live). Accompanying this auditory assault is the “Whip Seduction” shirt, featuring Rebecca’s artwork and printed by Forest Passage Printing.
You can now pre-order the cassette, digital album and/or t-shirt on Crucial Blast’s website or Bandcamp. the Seducer (Expanded Edition) EP will be released on February 9th, 2024.

In these turbulent times, where the mundane and the magical collide, “Seducer” stands as a testament to our journey – from the primal fury of our early days to the complex, layered beast we’ve become. It embodies our evolution, our commitment to the dark arts of metal, and our unyielding passion for storytelling through thunderous riffs, haunting melodies, and raw power. This release with Crucial Blast is not just a milestone for Cultic; it’s a bridge to the past and a gateway to the future. It’s a celebration of our kinship with those who have walked this path before us and those who will follow. So, to our fellow metal warriors and dungeon dwellers, we invite you to join us in this latest chapter of our saga. Embrace the seduction of the Seducer and let it lead you into realms unknown!
