The self-titled debut album from Drug Cult starts heavy as fuck with Serpent Therapy and the album continues with eight more heavy as fuck songs. This first sentence alone should be enough to gather your interest in Drug Cult, a foursome from Australia.
With their debut album, Drug Cult will impress anyone with common sense and a love for heavy as fuck doom metal with female vocals. Buy this on vinyl and when you receive it, take the vinyl out its cover and let it lying around for a week or so in the kitchen so it gets enough scratches to enhance the fuzz-drenched riffs even more.
Although opener Serpent Therapy clocks around 9 minutes, the other eight songs are around 4 minutes and that’s a good thing, the songs aren’t spread out endlessly but are rather solid heavyweights. Even though its heavy as fuck, it is not only heavy as fuck. Drug Cult managed to create songs with a sinister feel and there’s a certain lo-fi occult wickedness into it, something darker than you and me.
