Holy shit, those of you who have attended before know what Rock the Mountain is all about. For the rest of you, all I can say is that if you miss RTM, you've missed the most exciting event that happens in Idaho all year long.

As many of you are aware, things have been very quiet here at the Cvltvs camp during the last month+. On a local level, there have been many rumors making their way back to us regarding our status as a band. Yes, it's absolutely true that we encountered some turbulence, regrettably resulting in the cancellation of 4 upcoming shows. It's also true that Robert had flirted with the thought of joining Dimmencha when things were very questionable. Despite the degree of seriousness of where we were at as a band, a compromise and re-focussing of the minds was reached. Evil doesn't die easy, and it has become time to re-group and re-kindle the black flame! We're not at liberty to promise any time frame for a live performance any time soon. For now, we descend back into Hell to resume work on our new material that was put on the back-burner due to an overly aggressive live performance schedule. We thank everyone that supports what we do, and apologize to our fans who have questioned the band's status. It's become necessary to issue this statement to let everyone know that CVLTVS LIVES!
