On Theologian's debut album for Crucial Blast The Further I Get From Your Star..., Leech established a new trajectory for his unique brand of pitch-black, rhythm-heavy industrial music that he'd previously explored with Navicon Torture Technologies. Under this new name, the power electronics and death industrial influences were merged into even darker, more majestic sounds, crafting something that was significantly more atmospheric than his work with NTT, while also reaching into new extremes of experience. On Theologian's latest, The Chasms Of My Heart, this sound is perfected, incorporating more melody and percussion into the long, oppressive dead-world ambiance and pummeling electronic doomscapes, and it's one of the best albums that Leech has brought us. Lee M. Bartow is an american jew joung musician who started in musical styles like black-metal or doom-metal, and after he discovered the electronic music in its darkest side.

THEOLOGIAN is an interesting american project that first of all concentrates on the harsh electronic music scene and dark ambient since its establishment back in 2009. Several new albums from the act have seen the light of the day. The fact that each album are labelled with the brand-name THEOLOGIAN gives the listener a clue of what kind of dark focus we have with this project. First album reviewed here is a reissue of an album originally released in 2010 as a limited edition in CD format, in his own label "Crucial Blast". The source material comes from one of USA’s most interesting acts within noise and industrial music. The seven intersections on the album are harsh with much focus on over-the-top aggressions of noise drones, yet there are also moments of extremely emotional and melancholic saturating the album. Underneath the brutality, subtle melodies of drifting ambience create an emotionally strong contrast to the expressions of evil. So many layers hides underneath the album making it an album that you want to return back to again and again, if you can stand the test of extreme brutality. Black art in its most beautiful form!. Present album titled "The further I get from your star, the less light I feel on my face" is the debut album from the composer based in Nyack, NY. As was the case with the aforementioned album of Strom.ec/Theologian, this is an album that explores the darkest territories of sonic expression. Expressionally the album flows in spheres between ambient and harsh drones of death industrial. Underneath the waves of crushing electronics distant vocal recordings adds to the feeling of being trapped in a world far away from close human contact. There is something paranoid about the atmospheres of the album, however despite the unpleasant feeling throughout the run-time, the atmosphere is trippy and hypnotic in its stylish expression. This is my favourite THEOLOGIAN album ever.

Huge and big THEOLOGIAN recording considered for many people as "opus magna" of this project from New York. Industrial rhythms, electronic noises, spoken words, human screams and some kind of melodies (keyboards) which can to remind classical music. All togheter gave form to this double album which is already a classic of industrial music. A little bit to listen to it the whole, but more than interesting If you listen track by track or part by part.
