The Cult 

With VietNam and the Cliks. Wednesday, November 21, at House of Blues.

As stand-in singer on a tour with the surviving Doors a couple years back, Cult lead singer Ian Astbury finally got to indulge his deep-seated Jim Morrison fantasies to the hilt. It pays off on Born Into This, the British goth-metal group's first album in six years. Astbury's signature blend of metal-god narcissism and shaman-like mysticism is in full bloom — especially on the acoustic "Holy Mountain," the glammy "Diamonds," and the Bush rebuke "Tiger in the Sun." Overall, it's a welcome return to the Cult's sonic temple.
