Venezuelan Atmospheric Death Doom STRATUZ Awaken Your Senses With Symphonic Live Video “Back To The Sun”
New Album “Osculum Pacis” Out Now!
L-R – Franklin Berroteran (Vocals, Keyboard), Geronimo Egea (Guitar), Leonardo Rangel (Baa), Diego Cabrujas (Drums)
Stratuz is an atmospheric death/doom Metal band based in Venezuela and they are pleased to present their new live video for “Back To The Sun“. The track comes off of their album “Osculum Pacis”, which was released in April 2022. Having disbanded in 2006, and reformed in 2019, this latest offering pushed them to increase the technicality of the playing and work harder in the studio. Many years away from the scene led them to experiment with other musical currents, nourish themselves, and create inspirational, gloomy, and engaging music. They comment on the single “Back To The Sun“:
“It could be said that it is a kind of ritual, where a living master who has left a deep mark among his followers through his teachings is bid farewell, and these, as a sign of respect, prepare his return home, the abode from which we all come. It is the closing of a cycle of transformation, transmutation, life and death or death and life.”
Stratuz invites you to become immersed in their universe of sound and delve into the themes of the human being from existential, philosophical, and religious points of view. Awaken your senses with eleven tracks that ebb and flow through dreary gutturals, majestic choruses, and heart-pumping riffs.
The band is currently preparing to continue promoting their latest album “Osculum Pacis” in Venezuela and other countries. They are recommended for fans of Paradise Lost, Tiamat, and Moonspell.
The album “Osculum Pacis” was released on April 26, 2022, and is available on CD / Digital on Stratuzofficial.bandcamp.com, and Spotify.
The live video for “Back To The Sun“ was taken from their memorable performance this past March 10th in the Venezuelan city of Caracas, where they were accompanied by a string ensemble and a choir.

“For me this material is the best of the Latin scene of 2022” (Osculum Pacis) – Metallerium
“Osculum Pacis is a brutally artistic journey with Stratuz, it loudly demonstrates their abilities and vision, which they stayed true to throughout all the changes and dynamic shifts that we’ve been through on this sonic trip. I loved how packed is it with pure emotions of anger, melancholy, and growing brutality.” – ROCK ERA MAGAZINE
“Fans of doom metal, death metal – even black metal, can find something to appreciate with “Osculum Pacis”. For metalheads who like their metal dark and more mature with its themes, this is a great release to sink your teeth into.” – Team Brutal
It is an album, a record that can captivate anyone who loves music, both for its lyrical content and for its musical enrichment within rock in different trends and trends, along with orchestral arrangements that surround you. Without a doubt, a musical production for export.” – Cresta Metalica
