Theologian are a band from New York that has been featured before in this zine and plays a blackened form of dark industrial and this is a review of their 2015 album "A Means By Which To break the Surface Of Real" which was released by Nothing Under the Sun.
Dark sounding drones start off the album and after a minute elements of harsh noise and angry yet shouting and screaming vocals make their presence known on the recording and a great majority of the tracks are very long and epic in length and after awhile synths make their presence known on the recording.
Elements of dark ambient could be heard quite a bit throughout the recording along with a great amount of programmed beats and some songs also bring in a touch of the more underground side of industrial along with some of the more atmospheric and synths orientated style of black metal and every song sounds different from each other.
Theologian creates another album that is mostly rooted in the more underground styles of experimental, noise, industrial, and ambient while still also having the evil atmosphere of black metal, the production sounds very dark and raw while the song themes focus on darkness.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Theologian and if you are a fan of dark industrial, you should enjoy this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "God Comes As A Wall" and "The Sun Failed To Rise today". 8 out of 10.
