Dulia-Hic Contendimus EP
Dulia, a occult black metal band from Sicily, Italy play a very twisted form of sinister inspired occult black metal, which is sure to give you nightmares beyond your control.
There are a total of six tracks on on this EP, with the first track being an intro with unholy atmospheres some of us would dread to even think of at night. The music on here is more in the vein of Necrophagia, early Celtic Frost, and even some hints of Morbid Angel can be found here as well.
The vocals on this EP, are not your typical black metal, raspy screams, but more within a similar vein to that of Sodom meets Necrophagia meets Possessed. The guitars are raw and quite primitive sounding, which gives Dulia’s music very classic, occult underground feel.
These guys are not doing anything new musically, lyrically or even vocally, but their true to the roots occult black metal brings to mind the good old days of underground and satanic metal. However, this trio should be given credit for keeping the overall feelings on this EP very bleak and dark, bringing images of an ugly virgin sacrifice at the goatlord’s altar.
Check it out and feel Dulia’s unholy, anti-god and anti-religious wrath of suicide on “Hic Contendimus”. Symbol of Domination Sarjoo Devani
