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”.
