I was somewhat disappointed when I saw these boys live. Not in the show itself, but newfront_07_03the length. They were opening for Rush and were allowed to play only about twenty minutes or so. I am a fan of Rush, but I went there to see The Cult.

Here are a couple of my favorites.

I didn’t include the usual suspects, Godzilla and Don’t Fear The Reaper, though they rank among my favorites also. Those two they play on the radio fairly regularly, but almost never anything else.

The Cult can almost be considered a fantasy band I suppose. One album was mostly based on Moorcock’s Elric, with the author getting song writing credits on Black Blade and Veteran of the Psychic Wars.
