Cult of Dom Keller have today announced their fifth album “They Carried The Dead In A U.F.O.” and shared the first single, ‘Last King of Hell’.

Cult of Dom Keller will release their fifth album, “They Carried The Dead In A U.F.O”, on May 21st via Fuzz Club Records. Since 2007 the British band have been leaving a trail of sonic fever dreams, dark psychedelia and experimentalism that beats with a heavy industrial heart and the forthcoming LP sees them conjuring their heaviest and most adventurous work to date.

Since 2007 the UK group have been leaving a trail of sonic fever dreams, dark psychedelia and experimentalism that beats with a heavy industrial heart. Talking about the track, they said “The Last King of Hell is a big, big track. What begins with almost a Western sci-fi vibe builds over 7 minutes into a monster of sound. Lyrically it’s about a protagonist who – no matter how hard he tries, and how in harmony he thinks he is with the world – fails to see that he is actually part of the problem. As the track builds and spirals out of control so does our protagonist. Singles shouldn’t be 7-minutes long but who gives a sh*t when it ain’t gonna be played on the radio anyway.”

They’re probably not wrong in that line of thinking, but that makes the track no less enchanting, with a motorik beat driving from the core with organised chaos reigning elsewhere.

We’re thrilled to announce that Cult of Dom Keller are back with their fourth album, ‘They Carried The Dead In A UFO’ – due for release May 21st on Fuzz Club  

“We managed to create our most experimental and exciting album to date without being in the same room together. U.F.O. was recorded, mixed and produced by ourselves, meaning we had total control over every noise on the record. This was the exact record we wanted to make: Experimental and playful; moments of light and pure dark… we wanted to f*ck with the listener and pull them in with moments of beauty and chaos. We hope you enjoy the trip!”

Track from the Fuzz Club 10″ Split Single Series available at fuzzclub.com, “Behind All Evil Is A Black Hole” is Cult Of Dom Keller’s contribution to our Split Single Series shared with the Myrrors, 

Nottingham’s Cult of Dom Keller The Myrrors which is out on July 25th and now available for pre-order.

The band has been around for 7 years now, the Cult of Dom Keller?  I’ve seen the band evolve over that time,

Early days of rehearsing in a church cellar in the dark, amongst electric shocks and supernatural happenings, jamming till the sun rose, followed by a long cycle of playing gigs, working and existing on no sleep, with no money & disillusioned by a world around us, And then the pull of the universe brought us together to make music and The Cult of Dom Keller has existed ever since. There’s never been any agendas, egos or mission statement: just creating and evolving our own thing and pushing ourselves as musicians/songwriters.”

The track is called ‘Behind All Evil is a Black Hole’.  I came up with the title after I had been messing around with some mixes of a track we had been working on. We fucked around with the arrangement and then Neil began to write a melody on top, and the song came together. It’s a maelstrom of sound, and a really powerful track, that perfectly captures our transitional period in songwriting at the moment and acts as a perfect precursor to the new material that we have written for the album.”

Neil: “To me, the black hole represents life without music or creativity. The evil is all the obstacles that get in the way. I guess it’s about not giving up – not slipping into that void.”
