The name Brodequin was chosen by Jamie Bailey, after the medieval torture device. Torture devices in general are referred to frequently in the group's lyrical content. While lyrics describing dismemberment, torture, murder, and abuse are unsurprising in death metal, Brodequin is unusual in exploring such phenomena within a historical context. Jamie Bailey is a history graduate[1][dead link] and most of his lyrics are inspired by real historical events.
