It Will Come Out of Nowhere Goth, Industrial Post Death Soundtrack While some fans may not agree, it’s definitely a good thing that Post Death Soundtrack waited almost three years between their last full-length release, The Unlearning Curve, and their upcoming new LP, It Will Come Out of Nowhere. While the politically and emotionally charged core of their message is still the same as before, the duo consisting of former The Unravelling frontman Steve Moore and producer Jon Ireson have used their time well to gather new ideas and sounds, thus completely changing the game and redefining their sound. It will come as a surprise (until you hear the album) that Moore and Ireson took a lot of cues from unexpected sources to craft the new sound on It Will Come Out of Nowhere; a sound so new that it needed a new term: electro-doom rock. Moore has been a big fan of hip hop-infused trap with its bit basslines while both members of Post Death took influence from the likes of David Bowie’s last album Blackstar. Put all that together with unique, dark wave-and-rock-infused sound design and Moore’s rage-filled, politically-charged vocals and amazingly complex and emotive tracks like the album’s lead single “Chosen Sons” are born. “Chosen Sons” is both terrifying and relevant in its message, discussing radicalization on both sides of the “war on terror” and the types of thoughts that lead people to join organizations like ISIS. Through Moore’s stark lyrics and the music they both create, Post Death also give a chilling portends of what’s to come if something doesn’t change in terms of how society handles both the groups and the people who are prone to such hate. The video for “Chosen Sons” matches the energy of the track, with beautifully designed graphics of monstrous figures and dark and brooding vistas which, while abstract, move together with the music to allow the viewer to fill in the blanks. It’s easy to conjure up images of what the world might look like if such angry minds did take over and clash in a pointless war of ideology. It’s nothing less than an apocalyptic scorched earth landscape, brought on by unchecked anger and extremist views. With “Chosen Sons” as the teaser to It Will Come Out of Nowhere, Post Death Soundtrack fans will get a taste of what the album will bring to the world of industrial and dark wave rock. It will also redefine it, and raise a lot of ideological questions along the wait. This album is definitely worth the wait. It Will Come Out of Nowhere is out February 15 and will be available to stream on Spotify or Bandcamp, where it can also be purchased for download or as a limited edition double LP. In the meantime, check out the video for “Chosen Sons” or stream it on Bandcamp.  4
