Since 2009, Culted have been releasing a black metal and noise inflected vision of doom - and as unlikely as it sounds, the four members of the band have never played in the same room. Most of the group is based in Canada, while their vocalist lives in Sweden, making his contributions remotely.

I spoke with guitarist Michael Klassen about his lifelong friendship with bandmates Matthew Friesen and Kevin Stevenson, as well as how Myspace and a growing interest in noise music led them to enlist vocalist Daniel Jansson. Michael also talked to me about the difficult period in the band members' lives that led to their latest album, Nous, as well as how Jesse from KEN Mode helped get Culted on Season Of Mist.

My thanks to Michael for speaking with me, and to all of you for listening.
