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.?

Orcultus writes the music for Orcultus.
