Hailing from the ashes of Charlotte, USA’s darker side comes forth the blackened death metal trio, Oculum Dei. Mixing different elements and influences of black metal the band is set to bring forth a horde of darkness and set the listeners into a realm of deep, chaotic experiences.
Formed in 2016 as a studio project, (ex member)Tenebris (bass/drum and keys programming) was looking to spread filth with a black metal project and quickly recruited Zebulv (vocals/guitar) to join the fray. Shortly after Miclan' (bass) and Nadir (keys, organs, vocals and guitar) were recruited. Located in the USA the goal was to take influences from Emperor, Behemoth and Dark Funeral and push this eclectic madness as far as it would go.
Not content to remain as a studio project, the band started playing live gigs locally and have shared the stage with Carach Angren, Wolfheart, Aborted, Cryptopsy and Mors Principum Est. Clad in corpse paint with an elaborate and continuously evolving stage show, Oculum Dei has heavily invested into their extreme visionary madness.
The name of the band was inspired by the first song that was written by the band, ‘Blinded by the Gods’ and staying true to the genres of both black and death metal, it’s a haunting, aggressive band, in your face and extremely eye catching
A team effort behind all the songwriting, Oculum Dei has released the first album ‘Dreams of Desire and Torment’ February 2019 and are currently in studio for the second album
