French synthwave trail-blazer Perturbator has delivered a new single, Death Of The Soul, as the first taste of his new full-length album, Lustful Sacraments.
The song is described by the electronic artist, real name James Kent, as “nihilistic”, and takes its inspiration, he says, from “old school EBM a la DAF or Front 242.”
Kent describes Lustful Sacraments as “an album about bad habits, dissatisfaction and addiction. An overall look at how we, as a species, lean towards self-destruction.” The nine-track album is set for release on May 28 via Blood Music.
