Wraith of the Ropes


Everyone’s tags

More tags


Cadaver Dogs was formed in Hamilton, Ohio in mid-2001. Founded by Scarecrow Rottinghouse and V. Rottinghouse, they were soon joined by E.M. Hearst (who was Scarecrow’s old bandmate in the Industrial/Horror Metal band Kindergarten from 1995 to 1999.

The band’s name was changed in 2002 (after the discovery of another band with the same name) to Wraith of the Ropes. The true meaning of the name is known only to the band members themselves… and it will stay that way. The band prefers to let each individual listener’s own imagination determine the meaning.

The band was heavily influenced by Horror films and soundtracks… this was (and still is) the foundation of all the music created by the band. From the beginning, Wraith of the Ropes have strived to forge their own unique sound and genre. Uncomfortable with any other musical definition or label, Wraith of the Ropes exclusively plays “Horror Metal”.

    They're in contact - I did some creeping and found EM and Scarecrow on Facebook. It looks like EM is concentrating on his new band Synaptic Fracture instead of trying to finish Demonic Influence. It's been four years since EM said anything about the album, and even then it had been in the works since 2006. I doubt it will ever be finished.

    Hearst said something about it on the Doom Metal forum... the vocals are still not recorded as he and Scarecrow are apparently not in contact anymore. But that was some time ago already...

    Spent ages trying to find any indication that Demonic Influence even exists, without luck. So it's strange that MA even has it listed. All evidence (or the lack thereof) suggests that it was never released.

    Let's be honest,. Cornucopia has a killer intro but the song sucks. Wraith of The Ropes makes a killer cover of Black Sabbath
