The Cult

The Cult

The Cult are an English rock band which gained a dedicated following in their native Britain with mid-`80s singles like She Sells Sanctuary before breaking into the American metal market in the late `80s with Love Removal Machine. The band fuses a "heavy metal revivalist" sound with the "pseudo-mysticism…of The Doors, the guitar-orchestrations of Led Zeppelin, and the three-chord crunch of AC/DC, while adding touches of post-punk goth rock".
