SICARIUS – whose moniker means contract killer or assassin in Latin – draw influence from and pay homage to classic black metal bands, yet the quintet also injects a modern, high-velocity sense of immediacy into their bludgeoning and bloodthirsty extreme metal assault.
The group – whose sonic nihilism has been praised by Metal Hammer as “USBM with serious forward thrust” – was founded five years ago in Southern California, where they have since performed extensively alongside such genre heavyweights as Carach Angren, Uada, 1349, Goatwhore, Vader, Master, Helheim, Sadistic Intent, Skeletal Remains, Wolvhammer and Tombs.
In 2017, the group signed with M-Theory Audio and released their acclaimed full-length debut “Serenade of Slitting Throats.” Produced by Anaal Nathrakh's Mick Kenney, the album was hailed by Decibel for “combining black metal with a violent immediacy and pairing it with a bloody, corpsepainted aesthetic.”
2019 saw SICARIUS re-team with Kenney to record “God Of Dead Roots,” the new album sees SICARIUS “retaining and purifying our razor-sharp brand of chaotic black metal” as they “continue to explore the violent aspects of first- and second-wave black metal with an increased fervor.”
With a sound that nods to Bathory, Darkthrone and Gorgoroth and an attitude inspired by the likes of The Misfits, Motorhead and Midnight, SICARIUS embody the dark danger that rages unabashed within the most memorable extreme metal. Listen at your own risk.
