“CULTIC! What can I say? When I listen, it really feels like it’s a late 1980 analog recording made in the depth of hell and was recently discovered in the back yard of Tom Warrior’s childhood home about six feet deep by a rabid Goat. The power, vibe, and true essence of the time is captured and introduced to us all over again!” – Paul CVLT NATION
York, PA’s purveyors of swords & sorcery summon the warriors of old on their debut release, HIGH COMMAND. Cultic blaze a path through the battlefield by combining ideas and aesthetics of early death/doom, first wave black metal, and punk. Down tuned guitars and war drums deliver a mid-paced battery propelled by sardonic wrath and ungoverned fury. High Command is the auditory equivalent of a war hammer. It’s straightforward, lumbering, and crude. This is music for modern barbarians, urban wizards and street metal warriors. Ride to war!

“Combining theatrical shots with foggy live footage, ‘Forest of Knives’ fully embraces its medieval aesthetic and fits what Cultic deliver on High Command, their debut album.” – Vince Bellino, Decibel
Of Fire and Sorcery
Take heed! Cultic have emerged from the battlefield to unleash their sophomore curse upon you! “Of Fire and Sorcery” is a psychedelic journey through a world where magic and might are paramount. From this realm, Cultic weave a bizarre tapestry of extreme doom, black metal, traditional heavy metal, martial industrial, and dungeon synth — an amalgamation that propels listeners into an outlandish universe that is not a place for the meek.

“Of Fire and Sorcery is a celebration of the strange, shadowy corners of heavy metal that have managed to remain unpolished and abhorrent throughout the years.” – Ted Nubel (Invisible Oranges)
