The Cult is Alive is the 11th album by the Norwegian black metal band Darkthrone. Released in 2006, this album represented a shift in the band's style, as they incorporated more punk and crust punk traits than before. While the band's black metal roots were still evident, their shift from the genre's typical sound was much more noticeable. Commenting on the style of the album, drummer Fenriz stated, "Call it black metal or evil rock, I don't care..."[citation needed]
