Some Things Have To Be Endured (Vinyl Version)

CBR 104 LP 


The latest offering from NY synth-death master Theologian, Some Things Have to Be Endured features eight tracks of punishing black industrial, apocalyptic darkwave frequencies and nerve-rending electronic deathscapes.

The album is made up of collaborations between Theologian (a.k.a. Leech, also the mastermind behind the renowned power electronics outfit Navicon Torture Technologies) and a lineup of female vocalists from the industrial / noise realm and beyond, with contributions from Rachael Kozak (Hecate), Kristen MacArthur (Sewer Goddess), Rachel Maloney (Tonikom), Nikki Telladictorian (Prometheus Burning), Patricia Benitez (Fetish Drone), Gillian Leigh Bowling (Teloahqaal), Christiana Key (Delphic Oracle), Joan Hacker (Factoria), Shari Vari (Void Vision) and professional opera singer Melissa C. Kelly. The tracks shift from grinding sonic dread to ethereal coldwave beauty—blasts of rumbling, blackened synthcrush met with washes of haunting electronic melody—while remaining rooted in Theologian’s bleak, jet-black industrial sound.

The LP edition of Some Things Have to Be Endured is limited to 500 copies on blood-red vinyl, comes in gatefold packaging with new artwork featuring the evocative and disturbing images of New York photographer Gretchen Heinel, and includes a digital download of the album.

“Leech has crafted a monstrous, ghastly album of lurching rhythms and totally downer melodies—think The Cure’s Pornography remixed by Vatican Shadow.” —Aquarius Records
