Los Angeles industrial metal/heavy rock outfit CONTRACULT COLLECTIVE have shared a cover version of hardcore punk pioneers BAD BRAINS’ 1986 single “Sacred Love” with a music video featuring performance and behind-the-scenes footage from their recent (10/7) performance at Aftershock Festival in Sacramento, CA. Check it out streaming below or on YouTube HERE. The single is also available for streaming now across all digital platforms at this link: http://smarturl.it/sacredloveccc.

“If you’re going to do a cover, make it your own,” says vocalist SVART.  “Bad Brains have been one of the most influential bands in my life, so it seemed only fitting that we’d try an Industrial Metal rendition of ‘Sacred Love.’”

CONTRACULT COLLECTIVE was formed by Svart and guitarist Cultprit and includes BX on synth/backup vocals.

The band recently shared a new original single “Plunge” with a NSFW horror- themed music video in September and are currently recording their debut full-length record set for release in 2022.

The industrial outfit will bring their “pummeling beats, frantic guitars, and snarling vocals that make you want to get up and break something” (Genre Is Dead) to the stage at Welcome To Rockville festival in Daytona Beach, FL on Thursday, November 11 alongside headliners Slipknot, Gojira and Cypress Hill.

Metal Injection, 9/21/2020

Los Angeles-based industrial metal outfit CONTRACULT Collective have unveiled their new EP FOLLOW which includes two tracks—the catchy and pulverizing single “Follow” and grinding b-side track “50 Shades”–just in time to add to Halloween playlists. FOLLOW was produced by Arthur Rizk (Ghostemane, Power Trip) and comes after the self-release of their debut eight-track EP A CULT OF OPPOSITION last month. Stream/download FOLLOW today at http://smarturl.it/CONTRACULTFOLLOW.

“‘Follow’ is the product of a long weekend spent in a cold Philadelphian garage with producer Arthur Rizk,” shares CONTRACULT Collective vocalist/producer Svart. “This collaboration delivered two cuts of raw industrial metal which we felt would follow up nicely from our previous release, ‘A Cult of Opposition.’

“The title track ‘Follow’ is a self-reflection on giving space and energy to unsafe forces which drain every drop of blood from your body. Learning to establish healthy boundaries and self-preservation is a constant struggle I have bouts with every day. It can bleed me till I’m blue. It’s like salt in my wounds. We hope you f*cking freaks enjoy it, follow if you dare.”

“‘Follow’ is a juxtaposition between primitive hard beats and lush orchestrations of entangled cold guitars and synth,” says Rizk. “I loved working on it with Contracult Collective who were all about keeping everything big and harsh!”

CONTRACULT Collective was formed by Svart and guitarist Culprit and includes BX on synth/backup vocals. The band were signed to Roadrunner Records and released a series of singles and accompanying music videos including the NSFW “Hogtied,” “WDYT,” “It’s The Water” and a cover of Hole’s “Violet,” all of which were featured on their self-released debut EP. The outfit were featured as part of a mini-documentary series via The Pit What Burns in the Soul: CONTRACULT Collective discussing the relationship between the BDSM subculture and heavy music. Watch it here.

CONTRACULT Collective will take part in Chicago’s Cold Waves Festival virtual Halloween event “Season of The Glitch” tonight, October 30, performing live at 11:30 P.M. ET (8:30 P.M. PT). The festival will be streaming for FREE via Twitch at this link: http://www.twitch.tv/coldwaves2020. The band were also recently announced as part of the lineup for the annual Aftershock 2020 Festival set to take place October 7 – 10 in Sacramento, CA with headliners Metallica and My Chemical Romance.
