Quick introductory interview.

Interview with Doomcult.
1. Who are you and how did the band get started?

My name is J.G. Arts and I started Doomcult after playing in quite some different bands in the regional rock scene. The bands I played in were all quite different with respect to the musical style and were all fun to do, yet I never came to play in a doom band. With the formation of Doomcult this has finally changed. Doomcult has been started as a one-man band, yet with the intention to forming a fully functional multimember band in the nearby future.

2. Why did you choose Doom, and how would you describe your style?

Well, although my musical interest is quite broad, I always end up listening to doom. So, it was quite obvious to choose this genre. I find it hard to describe the exact style of Doomcult, that’s probably more easy to do for an outstander. For me it’s obvious that Doomcult is influenced by the Peaceville three, but hopefully Doomcult adds something new. The songs vary from funeral doom pace to mid pace and grunts are replaced by growls and screams. Lyrically, Doomcult tries to stay away from the more standard ‘the weeping willow is weeping’ themes by choosing for a more occult and misanthropic theme.

3. What would you consider to be the high point of your career so far?

Since Doomcult has only recently started by launching some songs on the internet, high points (and ultimate low points) are still ahead of us.

4. Which three bands most influenced you?

As mentioned, the Peaceville three had great impact on the music of Doomcult, but also bands like Urfaust and Mournful Congregation.

5. What are your plans for the near future?

Doomcult started off with recording a concept album, which is available on bandcamp. Music from the underground for the underground. In the meanwhile Doomcult will work on new songs and look for opportunities for live performances.

6. If there is anything you would like to add, the last words are yours.

You, the reader, are part of the underground, so check out Doomcult (e.g. on youtube). If you like it, spread the word. And if you don’t: keep it to yourself. Rock on!
