THEOLOGIAN - Confirms Line-Up Shift And Announces Upcoming Album

New York dark industrial entity, Theologian, has confirmed a shift in its recording and live line-up, with pre-production of a follow up to this years released album, A Means By Which To Break The Surface Of The Real, new full-length album, Contrapasso, fully underway.
Founding Theologian orchestrator, Lee Bartow, a.k.a. Theologian Prime, has expanded the cult to induct new member Dave Brenner (ex-Heidnik) for the next phase of the project, including upcoming releases and live executions, while Bartow's Annihilvs Power Electronix label partner Daniel Suffering (Whorid, Slavernij) continues to fuel the mix with his sonic decay as well. Collaborating in the recesses of Abandon All Hope over recent weeks, Theologian's dense sound incorporates new elements of instrumentation and vocal horror into the fold. The latest mantras have seen the band's layered heavy electronics foundation infiltrated by torrents of bowel-eviscerating bass guitar and severe pedal manipulation, with the incorporation of unorthodox percussive tools.
The recording process of Theologian's next full length, bearing the title Contrapasso, is currently underway. The record will be completed in the coming months and slabbed for release in 2016 - with a label to be confirmed - while additional collaborations, splits or DIY releases are more than likely to writhe their way into existence stemming from the Contrapasso sessions, as the project's diseased renaissance continues.
A split vinyl LP with Faroese techno maven Ancient Methods is now entering the post-production phase, with mastering sessions beginning in December, and a projected release date of mid-late February 2016 on Berlin-based label Metaphysik. Theologian's contribution to this release is a single, thirteen-minute ritual drone composition which takes up the record's first side, featuring haunting cello sounds by Gretchen Heinel and evocative synthwork by Daniel Suffering. Michael Wollenhaupt of Ancient Methods had this to say about the track: "Lee's track is a monster of a tune..." Link
