Prog-Rock group Post Death Soundtrack set to release new album
Canadian-trio Post Death Soundtrack have returned with a new full-length album, The Unlearning Curve. Based out of Vancouver, Toronto, and Calgary and sharing their work digitally with one another, the group was formed in 2007 by Kenneth Buck, Steve Moore, and Jon Ireson. Their dark and ambient tracks have become very popular on SoundCloud as well as YouTube. The single off the album, titled “Through the Gates,” has already generated over 42,000 views on YouTube and tons of praise for a band that has immense potential and a core group of fans. The song is unsettling, utilizing the minor chords on the piano as well as oddly-layered harmonies and vocals. The 5-minute track seems to be building to an explosion of angry guitars and drums, but it never comes to that. Instead, the soft melody fades out just as quietly as it began and leaves an uncomfortable silence that has listeners scrambling for more of their music.
Additional tracks on the album show the variety of music the band can create. “Transform in White Light” sounds like a perfect homage to early-era Depeche Mode, having a uniquely ’80s vibe without coming off as cliche. The song “Little Alice” is the album’s heaviest song; industrial rock and angry vocals flood a backdrop of metallic synth and dark ambience. While this song has generated some of the most traffic on the band’s SoundCloud, it lacks the quality and structure that the album’s other tracks have. The band shines the most when sticking to slower tracks that showcase their production capabilities.
The group will be releasing two remix albums alongside The Unlearning Curve in the future.
