STRAPPADO – EXIGIT SINCERAE DEVOTIONIS AFFECTUS
LABEL: COMATOSE MUSIC
RELEASE DATE: 09 AUGUST 2019
There is no creature like man; no species that has devoted such careful thought, such ingenuity to the development of methods of inflicting agony. Over the ages we have birthed countless monstrous machines and hellish contraptions, all with the sole purpose of causing pain. Mankind can shame the demonic denizens of hell when it comes to the fine art of cruelty. The screams of the tortured have echoed through the centuries, endless music to the ears of the perverted and demented.
The ghosts of those broken upon the rack, the spirits of those who have cried for mercy, bound in chains…their desperate pleas dance a twisted waltz to the devilish arias of agony unveiled upon the altar of Strappado’s Exigit Sincerae Devotionis Affectus. Born from a ghoulish fascination with the inhumanity of man, Strappado celebrate the unconscionable, the brutality that lurks beyond the shadowy borders of the imagination. ‘The Rack’, ‘Death By Sawing’, ‘Dislocated By The Rope’; each Frankenstein’s monster of riffs and blast beats, sewn together with vicious precision, is a glorification of the most base depravity. The bestial roars will transport you to cold dungeons, the bone-breaking drum battery will pin you to the table of torture, the intricate riffs will methodically dissect your fear wracked body and the murderous bottom end will bludgeon your remains into paste.
When word of these practitioners of perversity reached the stronghold of Comatose Music dark agents were swiftly on the wing, searching out the monsters of Strappado and bringing them safely back to the cells. Now the final preparations are complete and Exigit Sincerae… is gnawing at the bars. The torturer’s tools are laid out in readiness…it is time to begin.
From the stygian gloom of the darkest recesses of the underground to the forefront of your nightmares – Strappado have arrived with an album overflowing with complex cruelties and twisted terrors. Exigit Sincerae Devotionis Affectus is an outpouring of Strappado’s unending obsession with the sordid ground where mankind’s ingenuity and perversity meet, a celebration of the sickening arts of torture that will haunt you to the grave.
Every song of dank, rancid brutality on this album of unrelenting death metal was spawned in the pool of gore that is the collective consciousness of Strappado. From the thundering roar of ‘The Rack’ to the pulverising assault of ‘Dislocated by The Rope’ and serrated savagery of ‘Death By Sawing’, this is a merciless release. Taking all the basic tools of brutal death metal – inhuman vocals from the pit, devilish riffs that dissect and destroy, bone-breaking drum battery and a bottom end to collapse the chambers of your heart – Strappado have carved out wicked creations of cunning, cruel invention. This is a one way trip into the heart of darkness that other bands only dare toy with. Songs for the sick, music for the mad, lullabies for the deranged.
There was only one label that could ever have contained the fiendish minds that lurk behind the Strappado name – and Comatose Musicwere quick to clasp this new breed of monsters to their heart. Now there can be no more holding back. The restraints are failing and the bars beginning to bend. The torturer’s tools are laid out in readiness…it is time to begin.
