IRON BONEHEAD PRODUCTIONS is proud to present ROPE SECT's highly anticipated second EP, Proselytes, on 7" vinyl format. Following hot on the heels of the dark-horse triumph that is Personae Ingratae - released this August on 12" vinyl by IRON BONEHEAD - here, the German trio go from strength to strength, solidifying their idiosyncratic sound whilst offering daring new twists on it. Still a desolate fog of deathrock, dirty and lonerist, and uncaring for musical "progression" or conventional definitions of "excitement," ROPE SECT somehow make Proselytes sound perversely joyous (daresay danceable?) despite the supremely negative vibes being emitted. And, in fact, there is a positivism in such recalcitrance: Proselytes is thematically about enmeshing and lecturing proselytes. In the band's words, "Old lives are fading, a new one is dawning. A second skin. The beginning of the end." March forward, Proselytes, with ROPE SECT.
ROPE SECT is about seclusion.
Renunciation of society.
A dance on ruins.
A doomsday revel.
Venerate the rope!
Fear the rope!

Been in love with this band since Nordkarpatenland, and it’s been quite a ride to hear the way they’ve carved out a signature sound that is both rooted in the ways of old school heavy metal and embryonic black metal from the Eastern bloc during the late 80s and early 90s. The chorus to the title track is something you need to experience for yourself. Burzumgamecube
