Cultellarii is a dark rock band from Ocala, FL. formed in July of 2007. Cultellarii are assassins, or cut-throats that wield long knives and usually protect the leader of a cult.
Some of Cultellarii’s musical influences include Voivod, Black Sabbath, Celtic Frost, Electric Wizard, Mercyful Fate, Sahg, Agalloch, Danzig, Sunn O))), and Cathedral.
Cultellarii have been playing gigs in the central/north Florida region with bands such as Whole Wheat Bread, Selfles, Vocal Drop, Azmyth, Getten Deep, Twenty-Weight, Marion Crane, Taproot, Sin God, Absolution, Ebullition, Wormwood Prophecy, Sons of Ragnar, Absolon, and more, but seek to expand their realm of influence to new audiences and new places.
Followers and fans of Cultellarii are referred to as the “Cult of a Brighter Sun”, a name stemming from Gene Wolfe’s “Book of the New Sun”. Cultellarii have taken to wearing masks and stage costumes during the live set, and accent the show with fog machines and sound effects. The effort is to further the sense of mystery and intrigue surrounding the cult.
