PILE OF PRIESTS Issue Lyric Video For ‘Redemption Per Cruciatu’ Single
October 8th, 2017

Denver, Colorado-based progressive death metal band Pile Of Priests have released an official lyric video for the single ‘Redemption Per Cruciatu’. Created by Rafael Ortega, the clip can be viewed below.

Pile Of Priests issued digital single ‘Redemption Per Cruciatu’ independently on October 6th, 2017, and is available for purchase via the band’s Bandcamp page here.

Cover artwork was created by Juha Vuorma.

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.”

‘Redemptionem Per Cruciatu’ acts as a stand-alone single ahead of the band’s forthcoming EP Tenebrous Labyrinth. Scheduled for release on November 24th, 2017, the outing will consist of three new 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.”

Pile Of Priests’ line-up is as follows:

Evan Salvador (vocals and guitar)
Patrick Leyn (bass)
Evan Knight (drums)

Debut full-length studio album Void To Enlightenment was released independently in December 2015.
