Literally everything about this record strikes me in just precisely the right way - the sound is warm and lo-fi but clear, the songwriting and performances are spot on, and the Magritte-meets-bondage porn cover art is powerful (got it tattooed on my arm). Mysterious, clever, ominous...this is wonderful music.
Favorite track: King of the Night.

"Revel in its driving pulse and its suicidal choruses; Rope Sect feeds upon your lifeforce. Hum along, nod in time, elated for the eschaton. Personae Ingratae is Rope Sect’s debut statement. Six tracks of sustained diminuendo. Something like gothic post-punk; something like erotic schadenfreude. Angular, inward, self-mutilating . . . this is Rope Sect’s sardonic petition for a final curtain call. Personae Ingratae is a dark and lonely heaven." - Caligari Records (www.caligarirecords.com)
