Relapse Records’ blackened doomsters Culted are currently streaming a new track entitled ‘Illuminati’, taken from their forthcoming album Oblique To All Paths. Set for release early next year, this is to be the band’s second album, and the first in a long four year wait.

Oblique To All Paths has an underlying narrative, as Michael Klassen (guitar/bass/percussion/noise) explains: “Oblique To All Paths is the culmination of Culted’s collective experience over the past five years. As artists and musicians, we’re acting as interpreters of our environment, if you will. We’ve all been subjected to mythmakers and storytellers, shamans and charlatans in life. ‘Illuminati’ strives to skeptically dissect these deceptive belief systems and explore them using sound.”

Let mysthslaying commence! You can check out the track below.

Oblique To All Paths is due for release on 20 January 2014. Pre-orders are available now from those good folks over at Relapse Records.
