New York City’s dark industrial entity, Theologian, has released a video for new track “Surface Of The Real.”

The song is lifted from the new LP, A Means By Which To Break The Surface Of The Real, which is scheduled for release via Redscroll Records’ Nothing Under The Sun imprint on the 28th of August.

Featuring vocals and synth by David Castillo (Primitive Weapons, White Widows Pact) and additional synth by engineer Kevin D. Reilly, Jr. (Love Is Nothing, Navicon Torture Technologies) in collaboration with the outfit’s conductor, Theologian Prime (Lee M. Bartow), Theologian’s “Surface Of The Real” is best described as “psychedelische industrie;” a harrowing zenith of prophetic, post-apocalyptic, mechanical corrosion. The new video was constructed from live performance backdrop projections originally created by Gretchen Heinel, and edited by Theologian Prime.

A Means By Which To Break The Surface Of The Real is the latest tortured auditory from the soloist and collaborator, Lee M. Bartow (a.k.a. Theologian Prime), and comes in the form of four punishing sequences created through Bartow’s collaborative explorations with David Castillo of Primitive Weapons and White Widows Pact, Daniel Suffering of Whorid, Matt Slagle, and engineer Kevin D. Reilly, Jr., who has periodically worked with Bartow since the earliest incarnations of Navicon Torture Technologies in the mid-late 1990s.
