When presenting themselves live Stratuz transmits a much more powerful energy than on their recordings, and there are always comments that the band sounds much better in concert than on album, and this is because of the particular vitality that can be appreciated in their performances.

The band comments about going on tour:
"This is the formal start of our international tour, and we want to cover as many places as possible to continue promoting Osculum Pacis. We want to have direct contact with the audience and share with each of the bands that will share the stage with us."

This will be the band's first tour since going on hiatus in 2006 and reforming in 2019. To mark their return to their latest album “Osculum Pacis” is an immersion into the band's own universe of sound, which will lead you to listen to each of the themes repeatedly and thus discover each sound layer and the sensations to awaken you.

"So many years away from the scene led us to experiment with other musical currents and the studio, which allowed us to nourish ourselves and thus reach the level we are at now. This record we hope will awaken your senses with its eleven tracks that ebb and flow through dreary gutturals, majestic choruses, and heart-pumping riffs." says the band.

Lyrically, “Osculum Pacis” speaks of the abuses of the church and its deafening silence in the face of so many denunciations of abuse. It speaks of the manipulation of the masses, and injustice, but at the same time, it also speaks of the awakening of consciousness, of death as a process of transformation, and the need to change ourselves in order to rise up and banish our own miseries. It speaks of rising up aware of who we are.

Stratuz is 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, and Spotify.
