Soft Tissue, the collaborative full-length from LAMENT CITYSCAPE and THEOLOGIAN, is out tomorrow, October 21st, the entire record now available for streaming.
Recorded between Autumn 2015 and Spring 2016, Soft Tissue is a collaborative album conceived by brooding Oakland-based “larva rock” project LAMENT CITYSCAPE, and New York “blackened synth-death” act THEOLOGIAN, compositing industrial degeneracy and post-metal heft to create a thoroughly oppressive, and immersive, sonic experience. The project was initiated by David Brenner (Gridfailure, Earsplit, ex-Theologian) and David Rodgers (Godhunter, Battleground Records), and spearheaded by Mike McClatchey of LAMENT CITYSCAPE and THEOLOGIAN‘s Lee Bartow.
Underscored by a seamless integration of the best qualities of both groups, bowel-wracking percussive attacks, brutally heavy riffs, and boundless drones are juxtaposed with guttural, apocalyptic, howls from the deepest abysses of psychological anguish on Soft Tissue. Towering portent of calamities awaiting humanity as a whole, obsessively examining the fragility not just of our bodies, but of the subjective moralities which define our civilization as well.
Stream LAMENT CITYSCAPE and THEOLOGIAN’s Soft Tissue in its entirety via Soundcloud RIGHT HERE.
A video from the album is being prepared for release in the coming days.
