Strappado prepare to release Exigit Sincerae Devotionis Affectus

July 06, 2019

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 Music were 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.
