New York's Theologian have returned with a new recording which continues the harsh noise, dark ambient and industrial mixture of previous recordings and this is a review of his 2015 album "Dregs" which was released by Annihilvs Power Electronix.
A very dark ambient soundscape starts off the album bringing in an atmospheric yet haunting feeling and a great portion of the tracks are very long and epic in length and after awhile spoken word samples and elements of underground instrumental are added into the music while soem songs also bring in distorted melodies.
At times the music can be very experimental and also brings in field recordings while the power electronics give the songs elements of harsh noise and some of the tracks are instrumental and you can also hear a great amount of variety throughout the recording and there is also a slight influence of black metal being utilized briefly in the vocals while also adding in a few seconds of melodic singing and as the album progresses programmed beats can be heard in some of the songs.
Theologian creates another recording that takes the most dark and disturbing elements of industrial, dark ambient, experimental and harsh noise and mixes them together to create some evil and threatening music and the production has a very dark yet powerful sound.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Theologian and if you are a fan of this solo project, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Dregs" "Obstetric Violence" and "Dunes Of Ash". 8 out of 10.
