PERTURBATOR announces new album Lustful Sacraments and unveils first single & video.

  Van Muylem    9 maart 2021

Dark electronic master PERTURBATOR, aka James Kent, returns with new single "Death of the Soul" and announces his highly-anticipated new full-length album, Lustful Sacraments, out May 28 via Blood Music. 

"Death of the Soul" serves as a stunning preview of the nine-song collection, watch the video here or below.

Kent said of the song: “The track takes inspiration from old school EBM a la DAF or Front 242, Valnoir (Metastazis) has managed to perfectly pair visuals that reflect the nihilistic tone of it.”
Lustful Sacraments - which was written, performed, produced and mixed by Kent - represents his most mature work to date, merging the dark synthesized tones that brought Perturbator to worldwide prominence with classic post-punk, goth and heavy techno rhythms. The album deftly weaves Perturbator’s cinematic textures with thundering drums, subtle electronic melodies and in-your-face guitar hooks. 
“It’s an album about bad habits, dissatisfaction and addiction,” adds Kent of the album that serves as a follow-up to 2016’s The Uncanny Valley“An overall look at how we, as a species, lean towards self-destruction.”

Lustful Sacraments also features special guest appearances from Hangman's Chair and True Body.
