Dulce is a soundtrack album composed by American experimental rock band Sun City Girls, released in 1998 by Abduction Records.[2]


According to the album's liner notes written by Alan Bishop, the band received a request in 1995 from a Japanese man, Hachiro Maki, who claimed to be a member of the Japanese doomsday cult Aum Shinrikyo, to produce a soundtrack for his film project about "a secret underground alien base in New Mexico most commonly referred to as Dulce". Next year, during their tour in Japan, the band met the director in Osaka in a temple courtyard. After reviewing rough cuts of the movie, they were given one million yen for their soundtrack services.[3]


As Dean McFarlane of Allmusic writes, the album is stylistically varied "from the spaced-out improvisation and ethnic drone to the cutting electric rock of the Torch of the Mystics era". Behind the "freakish sound" of Dulce, he observes such influences as Zabriskie Point and Ennio Morricone's work from the 1970s.[4]
