• Image of Theologian + Lament Cityscape - Soft Tissue CD (Annihilvs)

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.

Recorded between Autumn 2015 and Spring 2016, Soft Tissue is a 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. Spearheaded by producers Mike McClatchey of LAMENT CITYSCAPE and THEOLOGIAN’s Lee Bartow, and featuring input from past and present members of each project, Soft Tissue is 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.
