Modern industrial band Theologian collaborated on a brand new offering with Lament Cityscape. This is a massive album, full of brain altering treats.
Inevitability: Theologian/Lament Cityscape (NYC/Oakland)(0:28-6:14)
Innovative and surprising themes from Ukranians.
Last Sunset Without Sun: Balance Interruption (Ukraine)(7:20-12:28)
Plaintive organic minimal instrumentation incorporated into this sonic wall of Swedish sound.
The Silvan Shrine: Netherbird (Sweden)(12:51-21:03)
Intricately woven advanced alien language. You try to decipher it.
Internecine Iatrogenesis: Deathspell Omega (France)(21:37-27:25)
Finnish old school doom. So ya know it’s gonna be a little weird. Second album with the lead singer of Reverend Bizarre.
Babalon Working: Spiritus Mortis (Finland)(28:48-35:17)
Rock and sludge mixed with some old school alternative.
Twilight of Innocence: The Von Deer Skulls (France)(35:44-40:12)
Rolling technical spacey prog.
Odyssey's End: Mithras (UK)(40:35-46:38)
Certainty the Adversary: Ruins (Australia)(47:33-51:43)
Fuzzed out groove-y doom.
Wood Valley: Order of the Owl (Atlanta)(52:03-56:23)
Stop rapping this shit, it’s almost vomitous nu-metal. Fortunately their technical prowess saves them and the whole sound excels. But man, I almost turned it off.
Constant Sleep: Car Bomb (NY)(57:06-END)
Behind the Vocals: John Coltrane, Sonny Rollins, Charlie Parker, Charles Mingus, Coleman Hawkins, Miles Davis, Wes Montgomery, Chet Baker, Dave Brubeck
