With a band name that translates from Latin roughly to “contract killer” or “assassin” and an album titled Serenade of Slitting Throats, you might guess that Sicarius are more aggressive than your average black metal band. And you would be absolutely right. Combining black metal with a violent immediacy and pairing it with their bloody, corpsepainted aesthetic, Sicarius have found a style that sets them apart.
Decibel has a new video for “Ferox Impetum” below- watch it now and check out what the band had to say about the video. Serenade of Slitting Throats is available through M-Theory Audio on October 13.
‘”Ferox Impetum’ is a quick banger of a battle anthem, very direct and to the point. Director Andrew Knudsen (Empyrean Throne) and I hashed out some ideas and we came up with the overall mood of the video. He interviewed a few camera teams and Zack Yan was the most promising, and everyone involved delivered 100%. It was the easiest video shoot I had ever been apart of. Our vocalist K. Karcass kept falling into the mass of rusted barbed wire, just gashed up by the end of the shoot, it was pretty rad.”
