Here  is  a  new  interview   I  have  done  with  the  Swedish  black  metal  band  Orcultus  which  is  getting  ready  to  release  two  new  cassettes  on  Forever  Plagued  Records  so  anyone  into  mid nineties  black metal  done  the  Swedish  way  should  check  this  band  out  today!!

 Interview  with  Orcultus    done  by   Patrick

1..Hails  what  gave  you  all  the  idea  to  form  Orcultus? How  did you  come  up  with  the  name  for  the  band? What  is  the  current  line up  for the  band?

When I think of it I do not really think that Orcultus was formed. It is something that has been going on for a long that finally got it´s own  name.
The name of the band is sort of a play with words. I will not try to explain it but in short it means misanthropy.
Orcultus has chosen not to reveal its members.

2.For  the  readers  who  have  never   heard  Orcultus   how  would  you  describe  the  music?

Raw Black Metal.

3.  Orcultus    is  working  with  the  great  label  Forever  Plagued  rec. how  did you  all  come  in  contact   with  Forever Plagued rec.?

Forever Plagued seemed to be a perfect label for Orcultus. And proved to be one too. They got the demo and liked what they heard.

4.Orcultus  is  getting ready  to  release two  tapes  through Forever  Plagued   "Black Rust"  and  "Endless Hate  And  Misanthropy"  how  long  did  it  take  to  write  the  music  for  theses songs? Does the  whole  band  work  on the  music  or does  one  member  usually  write  everything?

Endless hate and Misanthropy was written and recorded in one day.
Black Rust took almost a year.
Who writes what is not important.
Orcultus writes the music for Orcultus.

5.Who   usually  writes  the   lyrics for  the  band ? What  are  some  subjects/topics  do  you  all write  about?

Almost every song has a misanthropic theme. Anti-human.
It is the same thing with the lyrics as it is with the music.
Orcultus writes the lyrics for Orcultus.

6.How   has  the  responses  been from  the  fans? What  about  the   press?

It has been positive.
There has been some interviews but nothing more that that.

7.Does  Orcultus  ever  play  "Live"  shows  or do  you   prefer to  only  work  in the  studio? Who  are  some  bands you  all  have  shared  the  stage  with?

No, and there is no plans of a live performance.

8.Orcultus  comes  out  of the  legendary  Swedish black  metal  scene  what  is  your   opinion  of  the  Swedish  metal  scene?

There are a lot of good bands and even more bad ones.

9.Who  are  some  of  your  all-time  favorite  Swedish  metal  bands?  Are their  any  new   bands you  feel  the  readers  should  check  out  soon?

Bathory, always.

10.What   does  Black  metal   mean  to  you?

Alot. Black Metal is a way of life, not a music genre.

11.Are  you  or  any  of the  members   of  Orcultus  currently  working  with  side  bands  or  solo  projects? If  yes  please  tell  the  readers  about  them?

Yes, there are some but we do not associate orcultus with other projects.

12.Thank  you  for   taking the   time  to  fill  out  this   interview  do  you   have  any  final  words  for  the   readers?
