Like a merciless dagger onto the scene comes SICARIUS with their murderous, bloodthirsty and ultra-violent black metal assault. SICARIUS, meaning contract killer or assassin in Latin, draw influence from and pay homage to classic black metal bands such as Mayhem, Emperor, Rotting Christ and Gorgoroth, yet also inject a modern high-velocity method to deliver their brand of bludgeoning and savage music.
Formed in 2014, SICARIUS is a black metal tour de force who have begun a campaign of violent supremacy throughout Southern California, with no signs of stopping for anyone. To date, they have built a reputation via fierce live performances alongside the likes of Marduk, Vader, Helheim, Uada, The Noctambulant, Imperial Triumphant and more, as well as in underground circles with their debut EP, Scorch the Earth.
On their new full-length Serenade of Slitting Throats, produced by Mick Kenney (Anaal Nathrakh), the group delivers uncompromising and unparalleled sonic fury. Experience an exciting new force ready to be unleashed upon the charred landscapes of the United States Black Metal scene!
