Review by Kimberly Annette

Canadian band Post Death Soundtrack’s (PDS) latest release The Unlearning Curve released on May 27th, 2016, is a dive into a subculture abyss of sinister darkness. PDS takes the listener into a world of Alice in Wonderland on Morphine.

PDS’s members Kenneth Buck, Steve Moore and Jon Ireson reached into the macrocosm of dream language and J. Krishnamurti philosophy to paint this musical creation of creepy gloom.

Musically, although, the album is dark, it is hauntingly intriguing. The eerie vocals set atop ghostly backing electronic tracks stir up an emotional journey down the rabbit hole. The lyrics open the mind to a whole new bizarre tale of Alice drenched in drugs and horrific antipathy for the light of life. If the band’s intent was to drive the listener into a melancholy madness, they succeed.

The Unlearning Curve is the follow-up album to the band’s first Music as Weaponry an industrial delectation and far superior of the two. The band is busy working on their next release which one can hope for more influence from Music as Weaponry than the total pitch black emotion of The Learning Curve.

The mysterious musical journey of The Unlearning Curve is available in its entirety for free at https://postdeathsoundtrack.bandcamp.com/. But be warned this is a subculture gem and not for the joyfully lighthearted listener. (See the links below for more information)
