Music: Theologian Album Stream

Scene Point Blank is proud to team up with Handmade Birds records to present an exclusive stream of Theologian's just-released EP, Finding Comfort In Overwhelming Negativity. More info from the label below.

Lee M. Bartow is a revered pillar of the modern noise movement. He turned heads in the 90s with his Navicon Torture Technologies project and also founded the Annihilvs Power Electronix label. Theologian has previously released material on the incomparable Crucial Blast Records.

This four-song ep (more like a full-length album: each track clocks in at a minimum of 11-15 minutes in length) was recorded concurrently with the forthcoming full-length, THE CHASMS OF MY HEART (Crucial Blast). Like that album, there is much more emphasis on rhythmic elements here, as opposed to strictly ambient textures. Drawing inspiration, in part, from certain artists that came to light during the brief “witch house” craze of 2011, Bartow wanted to see what his version of that music might sound like, filtered through THEOLOGIAN’s death industrial lense. The end result is quite beyond the realm of dance music trends, but the influence is there. Hypnotic and deep, more than saliently dark, there is still plenty of atmosphere.

The packaging features incredible photography by visual collaborators JL Joseph Beaulieu (photography), Esther Rosenstein (makeup and prosthetic effects), and model Dessa Fell, along with imagery by Brooklyn artist Karlynn Holland.

Mastered by James Plotkin, presented in a full-colour, 4-panel DVD digipak.

DEDICATED TO THOSE WHO DESERVE BETTER. HOPELESSNESS IS ALL WE HAVE.
