Siculicidium are a band from Romania that plays black metal with some elements of death rock and post punk and this is a review of their 2019 ep "A Halal es az iranytu" which will be released in April by Sun & Moon.
Acoustic guitar playing and percussion starts off the ep while both of the tracks are very long and epic in length. When guitar solos and leads are utilized they are done in a very dark yet melodic style along with the vocals being mostly grim black metal screams as well as the riffs also adding in some melody at times.
All of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them while trumpet's and jew harp's instruments can also be heard briefly in the background. Elements of death rock and post punk are added onto the second track along with both of the songs sticking to either a slow or mid tempo direction.
Siculicidium plays a musical style that is mostly rooted in black metal while t he death rock and post punk elements makes the songs stand out a lot more, the production sounds very dark and raw while the lyrics are written in Hungarian and cover death and occultism themes.
In my opinion Siculicidium are a very great sounding black metal band with touches of death rock and post punk and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACK "A Halal". 8 out of 10.
