CULTED Streams New Album in Full!

Blackened industrial doom collective CULTED are streaming their new opus, 'Nous,' in full.

The band has offered this statement on the new record:

"After years of repeated personal and psychological trauma, Nous was the response. It was created after extended periods of self-imposed isolation and psychic exorcism. Ritual fires of mind destroyed the burden of our collective past. From those ashes a new beginning was possible. In that beginning there was nothing, just existential nihilism. But from that nothing, Culted explored all facets of human endeavours. Nothing was out of bounds, nothing was sacred; the religious, the philosophical, the metaphysical, all were fodder for exploration and contemplation. Culted embraced the results of those explorations and Nous is their interpretation using sound. Unlike previous efforts, Nous traded the epic and thematic soundtrack-like delivery of the past and instead opted for a more 'rock' oriented approach. Songs could be identified and enjoyed individually, while the album as a whole still retains a cohesive core that flows throughout. What remains is total, sonic annihilation."

Moreover, CULTED will be hosting a two-hour radio special via Gimme Metal tomorrow, February 26 @ 3:00 P.M. EST to celebrate the release of 'Nous!' In addition to curating a unique playlist, members Matthew Friesen and Michael Klassen will also be present in the chat for a live Q&A! As always, it is FREE to listen and you can sign up HERE.

'Nous' is due on on February 26, 2021 and can be purchased HERE.
