I know nothing about Rope sect. I just stumbled upon their album while browsing YouTube. I did find the cover intriguing and decided to give them a listen.
Based on the label and the kind of music I was listening when this popped up in the recommendations feed of YouTube, I was expecting something quite different. On Personae Ingratae we are given 8 songs that combine 80’s style post punk with some Joy division and some early gothic. Sometimes you hear some echos of doom metal in here as well.
Based on those echos, their label and the bands they are associated with, I assume that Rope Sect has members that are or were active in the metal scene. But this is not a metal record, but a very dark post punk rock record.
