Currently working on completing the new EP entitled “Tenebrous Labyrinth” to follow the 2015 debut album “Void To Enlightenment,” Denver, CO progressive death metal trio Pile Of Priests have a new lyric video for the stand alone single entitled “Redemptionem Per Cruciatu” which premiered exclusively on NoCleanSinging.com at this location, or just down in the player below.
Translated from Latin, “Redemptionem Per Cruciatu” means “Redemption Through Torture” as the band explains: “The song is about the centuries of child molestation within the Catholic Church, and in particular one Wisconsin priest who sexually molested over 200 deaf children between 1950 and 1974. He was never punished by the Vatican hierarchy or by the criminal justice system of the United States. The song musically starts out with an eerie bass intro to portray the sadness and trauma of all the affected victims. It then progresses into a fast-paced melodic ride of pure anger that is sure to rile up the listener.”
Following the release of this new single, the band’s forthcoming EP “Tenebrous Labyrinth” will consist of three original songs and three covers.
Drummer Evan Knight adds: “We are very proud of our new single ‘Redemption Per Cruciatu’ and upcoming EP that we plan to follow. Our sound has evolved on every release and we have agreed that this EP to come is the pinnacle of our sound thus far. It’s fast, evil, melodic and incorporates other styles of metal besides death metal.”
