“Dreams within dreams: Black Death Cult is a reality-cleaving existential nightmare curated by Canadian artist and musician Timothy Grieco, otherwise known from Antediluvian and Revenge.”
– The difference between BLACK DEATH CULT and ANTEDILUVIAN is that the latter always has a learning curve. I write riffs beyond my ability and then force myself to sharpen up in order to play them tightly. I’m always pushing the envelope in terms of aggression and extremity. With BDC, I’m allowed to write things I can play immediately. It’s ferocious but more straightforward and to the point, abrupt and exclamatory with a sprinkling of doom and sleaze which would never fit the ANTEDILUVIAN vibe.
