Bobby Tufino comments: “Stratagem contains the very first music that we wrote for this album back in 2007, but the lyrics were elusive; they were among the last vocal parts written for Nostrum. Thematically, Stratagem depicts the moment where clarity is found amongst overwhelming noise…but clarity can be fleeting.”


Alejandro Nogales adds:

“It’s one of two songs on the record to feature Johannes Zetterberg’s fretless bass playing, and features guitar solos from my old friend, Barre Gambling,” says Alejandro. “I had initially imagined a diminished mystical Middle Eastern sound over the second solo break, but Barre’s work transformed that section with a substance and urgency that really supports the storyline.”

A deep, philosophical concept album, the ten-track Nostrum is ambitious in scope and already displays the band’s ability to weave a narrative musically and elsewhere. The album also features guest appearances by members of Death, Daylight Dies, and more!
