With the wrath of NYC-area-based dark industrial entity, THEOLOGIAN‘s, A Means By Which To Break The Surface Of The Real LP set to be discharged late this week, a video for the penetrating “Surface Of The Real” track has been released early via Heathen Harvest webzine.

Redscroll Records will proudly issue THEOLOGIAN‘s A Means By Which To Break The Surface Of The Real on LP as the first release under their new Nothing Under The Sun imprint on August 28th in a one-time pressing of 500 copies on black vinyl. Featuring vocals and synth by David Castillo (Primitive Weapons, White Widows Pact) and additional synth by engineer Kevin D. Reilly, Jr. (Love Is Nothing, Navicon Torture Technologies) in collaboration with the outfit’s conductor, Theologian Prime (Lee M. Bartow), THEOLOGIAN‘s “Surface Of The Real” is best described as “psychedelische industrie;” a harrowing zenith of prophetic, post-apocalyptic, mechanical corrosion. The new video was constructed from live performance backdrop projections originally created by Gretchen Heinel, and edited by Theologian Prime for its online delivery.

THEOLOGIAN’s “Surface Of The Real” video is now playing at Heathen Harvest RIGHT HERE.

The LP-opening “God Comes As A Wall” was also premiered via Noisey HERE.

Preorders for the LP are now available RIGHT HERE.

Several new THEOLOGIAN live performances have been slated for the weeks ahead including a headlining slot in Brooklyn on September 11th with Nyodene D, Dreamcrusher, Existence In Decline (Anthony Saunders), and others, an appearance in Allston, Massachusetts on the first night of the Voidstar 25th Anniversary Fest with Author & Punisher, Compactor, Insect Ark, The Vomit Arsonist, and more, and another Brooklyn show on October 30th with Sewer Goddess, Gnaw and Kintaan.

A Means By Which To Break The Surface Of The Real further extends the immense catalog of THEOLOGIAN recordings through labels including Crucial Blast, Handmade Birds, Malignant Records, the artist’s own Annihilvs Power Electronix and more even further into the darkest and most engulfing chasms. The latest tortured auditory from the soloist and collaborator, Lee M. Bartow (a.k.a. Theologian Prime), come in the form of four punishing sequences, nearly forty-five minutes of new material, created through Bartow’s collaborative explorations with David Castillo of Primitive Weapons and White Widows Pact, Daniel Suffering of Whorid, Matt Slagle, and engineer Kevin D. Reilly, Jr., who has periodically worked with Bartow since the earliest incarnations of Navicon Torture Technologies in the mid-late 1990s. Tortured screams reach out over the tumbling industrial workings below. Low register whispered meanderings slowly rise to meet those screams. Machines’ rhythmic drones fold in on the voices. Sirens invite and warn. Sink into the synthetic abyss.
