ELZ AND THE CULT is a dark wave, gothic pop, industrial act from Istanbul, Turkey.

Elz gained critical acclaim and a global underground recognition with his new-wave infused debut single «I Did This To Myself» back in the early 2017. Since then he followed a successful release of his debut album called «Polycephaly», which gained international press coverage and kicked off a successful national tour wandering around the country’s favourite venues. Elz also won two Akademia Awards with this album in different categories and got a nomination at Hollywood Music In Media awards whose nominees also included Sam Smith, Diane Warren and many more.

Elz And The Cult released their sophomore record «Psychodrama» in late 2018.

After the first single and video releases for „HORRIFIED“, „ULTRAVIOLENCE“ (incl. an additional remix ep) and „PARANOYA“ ELZ AND THE CULT released in 2020 their second full-length album „BLOODLINE“. The album - consisting of 12 tracks - mixes industrial music with dark wave and pop elements.
