Way back in 2012, Ghost Cult started as a magazine in The Netherlands, specializing in avant-garde and extreme metal, stoner rock, and doom. We ran 19 issues as a digital magazine, which was fairly successful with wide-spread and acclaimed features on Behemoth, Neurosis, Ghost, Megadeth, Amon Amarth, Dragged Into Sunlight, Dream Theater, Korn, Bill Ward, Anathema, Ihsahn, GWAR, Anthrax, COC, Down, Intronaut, High on Fire, The Atlas Moth, and many more. We’ve improved and grown every year with your help.

We will always do what we do and curate and cover all kinds of rock, metal, punk, hardcore, and indie artists. Now in our seventh year, we move boldly into the future! Thanks for being here and supporting us! As a bonus, we have a gift for one lucky fan! Enter to win below! Continue reading
