Season of Mist, French independent label for Metal and Rock

Culted (Blackened Industrial Doom)




CULTED crawled forth from the icy expanse of the Canadian prairies and the Nordic coast of Sweden. Michael Klassen and Matthew Friesen were approached by Daniel Jansson to collaborate on an international project. In 2008, these ideas began to coalesce, with fellow Canadian Kevin Stevenson joining the cult to start the recording of their first LP 'Below the Thunders of the Upper Deep', as well as the EP 'Of Death and Ritual'.

2013 saw the release of the follow-up full-length, 'Oblique to All Paths' which was written, recorded, and produced in various closets, basements, dens, and domiciles. Now, in 2019, CULTED continue their down-tempo exploration of blackened and industrial soundscapes with 'Vespertina Synaxis; A Prayer for Union and Emptiness'. The mini-album finds its inspiration in the isolation, alienation, and damnation that dominates the rime-encrusted lands CULTED inhabit.

Although the four members of the band still have never spoken to each other in real time, they got to know each other through the music, making CULTED a truly collaborative effort across international lines.
