Los Angeles based instrumental death/doom metal band, Sordes Dominum, has officially release their new single, “Exillium” on all streaming platforms today, including Spotify, Tidal, and Apple Music – listen to the song, and watch the music video. “Exillium” showcases Sordes Dominum’s unique guitar and bass tuning, while creating horror themes, atmospheres, and punishing riffs. It was produced, mixed, and mastered by Alex Crescioni (3 Headed Snake, Alexander Blackstar, Ritual Aesthetic) at Stygian Sound. The music video was directed and edited by Vicente Cordero of Industrialism Films. A cinematic, horror-style metal band, Sordes Dominum brings evocative orchestral and atmospheric overtones to their music. Fans of Septicflesh, Cannibal Corpse, Cradle of Filth, and Sunn 0))), will enjoy this band – and they uniquely cater to death, doom, and gothic metal fans alike.
“Exillium” is a music video that pushes the envelope within the metal scene. With haunting instrumental riffs and hard-hitting overtones in the single, producer Alex Crescioni has created a new wave of instrumental heavy metal that is both diabolic and powerful. Sharing on the band’s unique tuning, Alex states, “We are an instrumental doom metal project with a bit of an odd tuning. It’s double drop E, with the lowest string an octave below standard E on both guitar and bass. The tuning is (E A E A D G B). We aim to use horror themes and atmospheres on top of punishing riffs in each song.”
Speaking on the debut music video and single, Sordes Dominum fan, Brent Glover, says, “I had some time to really digest this and I’m diggin’ it. It’s just so refreshing to listen to. I feel like I understand what [Sordes Dominum] is doing; a horror cinematic musical experience… [They] have captured it perfectly and beautifully.”
