cultureDef sounds "like a cross between Zeppelin/Bowie/NiN" says Maple Music, but really, its more like Zeppelin @ Shambhala, James Bond car-chase soundscores. Born out of the bands love for 70's riff-rock and after-hours dirty breaks, cultureDef's sound has a broad appeal after the likes of Radiohead meets Depeche Mode with a Manson-ish production style. "This is modern-rock radio.." Maple Music

The band came together in the wake of the dissolution of Zufo & the White Martians, a sci-fi power punk recording project that was the partnership of Zufo and Graham Ronne. Z&WM produced 40+ songs as a studio project that never performed live and came to an end at the end of 2007. After a year long hiatus, cultureDef was formed and the band began performing actively throughout British Columbia, focusing primarily in Vancouver. The band's line up is: Zufo – lead vocals/guitar; Graham Ronne – guitar and vocals; Pat Boivin – bass; and David Burns – drums.
