The Cult is an English rock band. In the mid-1980s, the Cult was one of England's leading heavy metal revivalists, a hard rock band with slight psychedelic flourishes, influenced primarily by the Native American mysticism of The Doors and the hard guitar rock of Led Zeppelin and AC/DC. The band also touched upon post-punk goth rock, a relatively new style at the time.
The Cult had hits in Britain in the mid-1980s, such as "She Sells Sanctuary”, "Rain", and "Revolution" and in the late 1980s, they broke into the American heavy metal market with the song, "Love Removal Machine". Although 1989's Sonic Temple is the band's most commercially successful album to date, by the late 1980s and early 1990s, the band was fraying behind the scenes, due to alcohol abuse and off-stage tensions. In early 1995, the Cult split up, citing unspecified problems on a recent South American tour.
Between 1999 and 2002, the band reformed to record the album Beyond Good and Evil, and reissued all of their albums...
