Please tell us about the history of your band and its members.
Cult Burial is a studio project that started in early 2020, when I drunkenly bought a baritone guitar. I made of couple of tracks and released a 2-track EP called ‘Sorrow’. Four months later there was a full album, which is out in November 2020. There’s Cesar providing vocals, myself on the instruments and Felipe providing some extra guitars.
How would you describe your style? Which bands influenced your music?
It’s a mixture of black, doom, death and post-metal. At times there are some progressive elements. Influences? I listen to lots and lots of metal and non-metal bands and this record was my first metal recording…it came out of me pretty quickly and it had to get out.
Why should a metalhead buy your demos/albums?
There’s blastbeats, there’s growling, there’s screams, there’s guitar solos, there’s riffs, there’s fast sections and there’s slow sections.
What have you released so far and how were your releases received by the public/media?
In March 2020 the 2-track EP was released. It got picked up by some well-respected blogs and Metal Hammer Portugal wrote about it, so it seemed to be well received.
Do you play live as well? How's your live activity so far?
Cult Burial is a studio project, not a live one.
What should labels/zines/promoters know about your band? Why should they be interested in it?
The first EP got good reviews, and early reviews of the album show that it’s going to get some buzz. It’s an intense record and crushingly heavy, and it’s going to be followed up with more releases so it would be great to get people involved from an early stage.
What plans do you have for the near future as a band?
The album is out 6 November, and a single from the album called ‘Dethroner’ will be out in October.
Where can we listen to your band and where can we buy your stuff?
