Hippie Death Cult  is:    Eddie Brnabic  - Guitar,     Laura Phillips  - Bass/Vocals,      Ryan Moore  - Drums

Hippie Death Cult have been described as “a journey through shameless and triumphant artistic expression, exploration and discovery” in the realms of psychedelia and riff-heavy rock n’ roll.  During their formative years the band has transitioned from a 4 piece to a more consonant power trio consisting of guitarist Eddie Brnabic, vocalist/bassist Laura Phillips and drummer Ryan Moore. In 2019 they signed to Cursed Tongue Records for the release of “111” then in 2021 signed to Heavy Psych Sounds Records to release “Circle of Days” and Doom Sessions Vol.5, a split release with label mates High Reeper. Both full-length albums received international critical acclaim while debuting at #1 on the Doom Charts. The band is also known for their high energy and passionate stage performances, having headlined numerous sold out shows in their hometown of Portland, Oregon, in addition to touring throughout the west coast and south western United States. They are currently in production for their 3rd studio album and are set to announce extensive tours for both the United States, Canada and Europe starting in late summer 2022.

"Every so often something gets me really charged.  I'm telling you guys, this is becoming more and more a rarity for me.

Not a lot triggers that excitement of new discovery anymore.  I'm getting old 'n' jaded. Nevertheless, the power of the Riff prevails!  Introducing my favorite new find: HIPPIE DEATH CULT from Portland, Oregon. Hippie Death Cult is one of the freshest, most vibrant bands to come out of Portland in quite some while."

 

Give ear... -BillyGoat (Doomed & Stoned)

"Circle of days is a journey through shameless and triumphant artistic expression, exploration and discovery and comes full circle with five tracks of evocatively retro yet freshly imagined deliciousness. "

"I don’t typically add just flat out singles to my collection, but Hippie Death Cult have something special about to go down in the heavy scene. They have 3 singles out there and some trippy youtube videos of those songs that indicate their upcoming debut full length just may be something to be anticipating. I know I can’t wait to hear more, take a listen, I think you’ll agree. Portland, Oregon strikes again."

B-b-b-blown away. This here is utmost fire! I'm ready for life-long membership of the Hippie Death Cult, where do I sign up??

-Niels Bartholdy (Cursed Tongue Records)

Despite, or perhaps because of, their name, Hippie Death Cult are a very inviting band. The Portland, OR-based rockers deal in psychedelia, in doom and in riff-heavy classic rock

Vince Bellino - Decibel Magazine

Portland's Hippie Death Cult is like if Frank Zappa got into stoner rock, but also listened to some older Mastodon on the weekends. It's equal parts progressive rock and just straight up riffs, making for one hell of a final product. Which is why we pretty much had to premiere the band's new album Circle of Days today. It's too good!
