The second monicker in the continuing evolution that finally birthed the Cult, Death Cult was formed in 1983 by Ian Astbury, who had recently dissolved Southern Death Cult. He teamed up with guitarist Billy Duffy (ex-Theatre of Hate), bassist Jamie Stewart (ex-Ritual), and drummer Ray Mondo to release an EP on Situation Two in mid-1983. Nigel Preston replaced Mondo in the fall, and another EP appeared later in 1983. By the end of the year, however, Death Cult had become the Cult.
