Keenan Johnston A very interesting collaboration here... Lament Cityscape's post-industrial doom soundscapes meet Lee Bartow's death industrial project Theologian, and the result is impressive. The songs have a cinematic quality that lends a lot of atmosphere, and the two styles play off each other quite well both when combined or contrasted to emphasize the heavier sections (with the bonus Godflesh cover included sounding particularly compelling). Well worth a look for industrial/post-anything fans. Favorite track: Soft Tissue Is The First To Go.

    When you get the entire album it comes with an additional hidden track. It's a cover of a song from a band that we are all into. It also comes with a PDF of all of the lyrics and credits and bullshit like that, but it looks cool.
    Thanks for your time.

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.



released October 21, 2016

Soft Tissue was produced and mixed by Mike McClatchey at Underland Studios, with supplemental production by Lee Bartow at Abandon All Hope, and mastered by James Plotkin.
