Following a succession of name and stylistic changes, the Cult emerged in 1984 as one of England’s leading heavy metal revivalists. Picking up the pseudo-mysticism and Native American obsessions of the Doors, the guitar orchestrations of Led Zeppelin, and the three-chord crunch of AC/DC, while adding touches of post-punk goth rock, the Cult gained a dedicated following in their native Britain with mid-’80s singles like “She Sells Sanctuary” before breaking into the American metal market in the late ’80s with “Love Removal Machine.”
Sweet Soul Sister is the nation’s premier tribute to The Cult. Based out of Southern California, this band of seasoned musicians accurately recreates the sights, sounds and concert experience of a Cult concert.
