Cult Values was formed in October 2014 in Berlin as an international collaboration of musicians from the USA, New Zealand, Austria and Germany. After recording a much-acclaimed demo in 2015 (out on Berlin’s own Static Age Records) and getting a new drummer, the band began to play tons of shows in Germany and the periphery as well as write more songs. Their self-titled debut LP was recorded in December 2015 by Tobias Lill.
Cult Values has a very-early-American-hardcore-meets-post-punk sound, defined by fast, melodic, confident guitar play reminiscent of Articles of Faith and the more recent Criminal Code. The album delivers ten tracks of potent, dark hardcore that will thrill those hungry for a contemporary take on a classic sound.
