Culted stream new song from Oblique To All Paths

Posted in News with tags , , , , on 13th January 2014 by Nico Solheim-Davidson

Black metal’s own doom hounds Culted are streaming their abysmal new track, Transmittal, via Pitchfork. The soul-suffocating anti-hymn is taken from the band’s album Oblique To All Paths, which is scheduled for release via Relapse Records later this month. The sorrow-laden track can be streamed at this location. Michael Klassen (guitar/bass/percussion/noise) comments on the track:

Transmittal is like the title suggests, a song intended to transmit an experience to the listener. Initially, it may lull the mind with hypnotic effects and repetition perhaps blurring vision and numbing consciousness. But it awakens with a scream to spark a flame and illuminate the world with fire, while scorching the wings of angels to finally reveal the collapse and coldness of space to the listener.

Oblique To All Paths will see official release on CD, 2xLP and digital formats via Relapse Records on 21st January in North America, 20th January in the UK/World, and 17th January in Germany/Benelux/Finland. For pre-orders, point your browser to this location. iTunes purchasers should go here.
