Powerful, catchy and thought-provoking; introducing THE NEW DEATH CULT!
THE NEW DEATH CULT play unapologetic alternative rock infused by melodic guitars and grunge references.
Their brilliant songwriting, fused with a refreshing outspokenness on social and environmental issues, have made them one of the hottest new bands coming out of Norway.
Dubbed a brilliant cross-over between Queens of the Stone Age, Biffy Clyro and Blur - THE NEW DEATH CULT drives alternative rock in a forward direction mixing the eclectic 90's vibe with modern alterntive rock. Their unique sound earned their 2019 debut praise in The Guardian, describing them as "smoky, soulful sweetness".
After the release of their critically acclaimed debut album, the band toured with bands like Wheel and Djerv, and made several festival appearances, before heading to the studio to record their upcoming album.
Aesthetically, THE NEW DEATH CULT explores the melting point between heavy rock and lyrics inspired by love for humanity and planet earth, drawing from the same well as Rage Against the Machine and Muse. The resulting sound stands out as no-frills organic and authentic yet fresh and modern in the vast ocean of contemporary rock music.
