Band Submission: Oswald's Cult-Sludge Metal From West Palm Beach, Florida
Band Name: Oswald's Cult
Genre: Sludge Metal
Location: West Palm Beach, Florida
Brief Bio/Description: Oswald's Cult is a dandy little group of cute high school kids (Austin King, Wayne Meinke, and Marco Antich) trying to make a name for themselves through the power of love, friendship, and behavioral modification therapy. Hailing from Florida (Birthplace of the Baker Act) Oswald's Cult's sound may very well be categorized in the following: Sludge Metal, Doom Metal, Noise Rock etc. but as we like to describe it "The government is lying to you, Lee Harvey Oswald was innocent, John F. Kennedy was killed by the Federal Reserve"
Oswald's Cult began in late 2014, when the administration of the high school Marco Antich was attending expressed their concerns when they found out he was trying to start a band called "The Klebolds" named after one of the Columbine shooters. Marco fully understanding their worries, renamed his then theoretical band "Oswald's Cult" (which at first had nothing to do with alleged Assassin of John F. Kennedy, but over the years we thought it was edgy as fuck so that's where we claim to have gotten the name)
During the summer of 2015, Marco would release the Oswald's Cult EP.
For the next year or so Marco would struggle to find kids edgy enough to join his band, but in the fall of 2015 his dreams would come true, when 2 unlikely heros would arrive on the scene: Austin King and Wayne Meinke.
Austin and Marco met based on their shared love of the Melvins, Austin noticing Marco wearing a "Stoner Witch" t-shirt. Wayne and Marco would meet on their shared infatuation with highly publicized tragic events.
"It's all history from their" and now Oswald's Cult is busy promoting their first full length LP titled "Moloch"
If this story proves anything it's that, "the only shots ya' miss, are the one's you don't take at all" - Lee Harvey Oswald
