KULTIKA - The Strange Innerdweller [2013]

Kultika is now the product of different influences from progressive or post-rock to doom, sludge and other metal acts, which can now only be defined as post-metal.
A mixture between a powerful sense of intimacy and violent lamentations, the music of Kultika isn’t an attempt at groundbreaking never-before heard music – it is simply the musical expression of its members and their influence; a musical composure void of the individual but filled with personality.
