Dusius are a band from Italy that plays a mixture of folk, viking, melodic black and death metal and this is a review of their 2017 album "Memory Of A Man" which will be released in March by Extreme Metal Music.
Acoustic guitars and atmospheric keyboards start off the album along with some drum beats a few seconds later and they also mix in with the more heavier and melodic side of the music and after the intro clean singing pagan vocals are added onto the recording along with spoken word parts being used at times.
Death metal growls and progressive elements are also used quite a bit throughout the recording along with the songs also mixing in flutes and bagpipes and viking style shouts are also used at times along with some black metal screams and when guitar solos and leads are utilized they are also done in a very melodic fashion.
When the music speeds up a decent amount of blast beats can be heard and some tracks also bring in a small amount of spoken word parts and the songs also bring in a great a mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts along with some symphonic style keyboards and a couple of the tracks are very long and epic in length while some riffs also add in a touch of thrash.
Dusius plays a musical style that takes folk, viking, melodic black and death metal and mixes them together to create a sound of their own, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover Paganism and Fantasy themes.
In my opinion Dusius are a very great sounding mixture of folk, viking, melodic black and death metal and if you are a fan of those musical genres, you should check out this band.. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Slainte" "The Rage Of Gods" "Dead End Cave" and "Coldsong". 8 out of 10.
