HOT TAKES: Getting to know The New Death Cult

Welcome to the feature; Hot Takes! We chat to a band or artist that we have unearthed as some what of a hidden gem and allow them the chance to introduce themselves to you, the reader.

Q1 – Who is in your band?

ALPHA (Vocals/Guitar), BETA (Lead Guitar), GAMMA (Bass) and DELTA (Drums)


Q2 – What is your take on your own sound?

Solid desert rock drenched in cool chords and melody with a spaced-out twist!


Q3 If someone was listening to your music for the first time, what song would you tell them to listen to and why?

 Light Spills Over‘ is the opening track on the album and encompasses pretty much everything we stand for musically and lyrically, so we would choose that one.


Q4 – What is the plan for 2019?

We’re releasing the album on September 6th and having a massively cool release party on September 26th at Parkteateret in Oslo (Norway), before hitting a few other TBA dates later in the fall. Simultaneously prepping for 2020!


Q5 – What is the one song you wish you wrote?

 ‘Impossible Question’.


Q6 – What three bands inspired or continue to inspire you the most?

We all have our personal favourites as band members, but we really dig the new Slipknot, Rammstein and Biffy Clyro albums!


Q7 – Where can our readers see you live or listen to your music?

Aside from a few Norwegian dates this fall, we’ll be coming out to Europe in 2020 and will aim to do some cool festivals in the summer. Our album will be out on all digital platforms and we’ll have our own limited edition vinyl available. Check our website!


Q8 – If your band was an animal, what would it be and why?

Tardigrade, if we’re counting micro-animals. It’s the only living thing on earth known to survive both intense radiation and the vacuum of outer space, which make them equipped for interstellar touring. How cool is that!
