The Love And Terror Cult
The Love And Terror Cult
By Keith Carman

Bleak and foreboding, the Love and Terror Cult are a dangerous band. Knowing their craft well enough to add in mathematical and dynamic elements to otherwise hardcore-influenced metal, comparisons to the live threat the End once promised colliding with Dillinger Escape Plan’s frenzied attack make for a truly creepy experience during this half-hour, eight-track lesson in sheer terror. Occasional bouts of outright noisecore are offset with subtle breakdowns that accentuate the ominous nature of oddball songs including “Hal Johnson & Joanne McLeod,” “Fructose Pondextrose” and “Madonna-Boy,” titles reminiscent of obvious influences Curl Up And Die. With their dissonant guitar melodies and screeching vocals though, the Love and Terror Cult aren’t about to roll over. Not unlike a Deadite, they’ll just keep coming at you with relentless viciousness until they swallow your soul. (Independent) - Exclaim!


2006 - Split EP with Strawman Fallacy
2007 - Self-titled Full-length



The Love and Terror Cult, hailing from Toronto’s suburbs, have a simple objective - to make obnoxious sound good. Since 2005, LTC have been making heavy, mathematical noise music with pop sensibility, willfully dodging the more cliché aspects of the hardcore pigeonhole. LTC have toured around most of Southern Ontario, and shared the stage with artists such as The End, Aids Wolf, Fuck the Facts, and Cancer Bats. Comprised of Justine Smith, Jon Galletly, Nilsson Gonsalves, Cody Wright and Collin Young, LTC has developed a substantial fan base around the Greater Toronto Area.

The Love and Terror Cult have been interviewed and played live on CIUT FM and were featured by The Mississauga News; both in print and in a video of the band performing a Christmas song they were asked to write which streamed on the newspaper’s website. The band released a split EP with Toronto’s Strawman Fallacy in 2006, followed up in late 2007 with an entirely self-produced full length. They are currently writing and playing venues in the Greater Toronto Area while planning a summer tour. LTC can be found online at
