SOOT is the death industrial alias of James Livingston, founder of the intrepid and esoteric Black Horizons label. Following last year’s superlative split with Thoabath, A General Theory Of Tears is SOOT’s first full-length communiqué, a purgative and distressing inspection of loss and anguish. Livingston constructs an oppressively thick and ominously laden presence that interfaces with an explicit dub influence within its storm of thundering kick and distorted fog. A carefully thought cycle that assembles the disparate approaches of Brighter Death Now and Information Overload-era SPK with Scientist and DJ Screw at their most somnolent. Edition of 50. Packaged in cardboard bradpak with insert and download code.
