Kultika Interview by Andruta Ilie/ Dark Art Conspiracy
Hi, guys! How’s it going? When was Kultika born and how did it all start? I’d like you to go back in time and describe that particular moment when you decided to start the band and how it all went from there.
Fulmineos: Hello, nice to meet you! Well, these days we are preparing the second full-length, it’s a process that takes time, but we like to be involved in the creative process and to exchange musical and lyrical ideas to fulfil our goal to release another great album.
It all started in 2008, we were more black sludge experimental than nowadays, but the credo remained the same: no boundaries, no limitations, express only what you feel! The rest is like every other band, but despite numerous lineup changes we went forward driven by our will to release good and credible music.

LIVE REVIEW by Carina Lawrence / Dark Art Conspiracy
Brighton’s annual dedicated metal festival Mammothfest makes a bigger impact each year and this year’s event was no exception, especially as they impressively managed to bag 3 UK exclusive headliners with Rotting Christ, Fleshgod Apocalypse and Amenra.
Since its return in 2014 Mammothfest has always mustered up a formidable line-up, comprised of heavyweight acts such as Textures, Venom Inc, Sylosis, Entombed, Martyr Defiled and more in the past, as well as always showcasing the best and upcoming talent, they even have a whole stage devoted to this, named the Rikstock stage, after Mammothfest director Steve Dickson lost his close friend and business partner, Rik Mosquero to brain cancer, he went on to name the stage in his honour and highlight the emerging artists, Rik himself was in local band Hole In The Sky who have frequently played the festival, including this year’s event. Along with the bigger calibre acts they bring in each year, the festival has successfully managed to upscale its venue as its new current home is The Arch located on the seafront and is a perfect central spot in Brighton, whereas previously the festival has hosted at different and smaller venues across a weekend, highlighting again the growth and expansion of this massive metal event.
Sardinian metal act Moebius have unveiled their new music video and second single ‘Mercury’, and have given us an exclusive look at the clever, intriguing and truly unique video/song, as it impressively is made by nine words in Morse code used as a rhythmical pattern!
Check out the video for ‘Mercury’ below!
