Osculum Pacis is the fourth full-length album from doom death specialists STRATUZ. The album features 11 brand new tracks with a whole range of new sounds, which were composed throughout the Covid-19 pandemic against all odds.
Lyrically, the album’s tracks speak of the abuses of the church and its deafening silence in the face of so many denunciations of abuse, it speaks of the manipulation of the masses, injustice, but at the same time, it also speaks of the awakening of consciousness, of death as a process of transformation, the need to change ourselves in order to rise up and banish our own miseries, it speaks of rising up awareness of who we are.
Stratuz recorded the songs at The Asylum Studio with production being handled by Franklin Berroterán. Mixing and Mastering was by Arturo Banús in Chicago, Illinois. The artwork for Osculum Pacis was created by Eugenia Bathoriya. All music & lyrics for Stratuz are by Gerónimo Egea & Franklin Berroterán.
