  • Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    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.

    Includes unlimited streaming of SOFT TISSUE via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.

Track Name: LAST TRAIN TO NOWHERE
Give nothing back
The death of hope
Disappointed by progress,
We call this "Progress"
If you can call this “Progress”
(how can you call this progress?)
Let's call it what is is:
Decimation
Regardless of cost
Full speed ahead
No point in counting the dead
The sorrow can not be contained
As nature is put to the flame
As we dump it all into the drain
Herd everyone onto the train
Track Name: OLD FLYEATER
Old Flyeater,
she’s comin for you.
She’s got hooks in her hands
and murder in her mind.
Old Flyeater,
she’s comin for you.
She’s lickin her lips,
her panties are wet.
Old Flyeater,
she’s comin for you,
a devil with blonde hair and eyes of blue.
Old Flyeater,
with murder in mind,
She’s gonna suck yer cock dry,
and fuck ya from behind.
Track Name: INEVITABILITY
Trapped at the bottom of a well
I see bloody marks in the walls
Bones all around me
Scorched black
The first coals fall slowly
I'll sit here until the light dies
I scream involuntarily
Up to my ankles now
In excruciating pain
I try to keep standing
I fall and I writhe
I'm burning to death
And I deserve it
Yes, I deserve it
But so do you all
With the skin on my face
Cracked and charred
I smile with the knowledge:
You will all feel the same
Excruciating pain
Track Name: SOFT TISSUE IS THE FIRST TO GO
Eyeless
Nameless
Anonymous
Lifeless
Rotting,
crumbling,
becoming,
nothing
Dreamless and dreaming
Eyeless and seeing
Lifeless and screaming
Into darkness unyielding

I fall into a vast yawning pit,
Infinity stretching behind me.
I hear the cries of those who came here before me,
their warnings to turn back like thunder in my ears.
Even if i had a choice,
by now it's far too late.
I must continue downward until i know what is ahead,
in all that black immensity.
Track Name: WE ARE ALL BARBARIC SCUM
A fire needs fuel,
and leaves waste behind.
We all must consume or die.
A pack of hyænas,
upon a rotting carcass,
we are the last remnants
of a dying race…

All of us are
rapists,
murderers,
liars,
ruiners,
hypocrites,
nobody is exempt.

(Complicity)

The duality of man:
Destroy everything you can
“We can.”

Oh, mankind,
why are you so unkind?
Track Name: FLECHETTE
You pass right through me,
over and over again.
And in your place,
are all these holes,
which cannot heal.
Cannot heal
Cannot heal
Cannot heal
Track Name: OH, MASTER
All positive thought
Bears stark contrast
To harsh conditions
Which encompass
Oh, Master
Let me see for everyone
A saviorless presence
In crumbling days
Escape thwarted
In every way
Oh, Master
Let me speak for everyone
Decay in these pores
Devours all soul
All semblance of purpose
Remorselessly overthrown
Oh, Master
Let me choose for everyone
This vastness of anguish
I now part its tides
The void there before me
Pulls this shell inside
Oh, Master
Let me be everyone
