Ever industrious in their pursuit of industrial obliteration, Oakland's Lament Cityscape presents a new, towering offering. The Pulsing Wet EP, second in their concept-driven trilogy, offers three slices of desolation that mix industrial metal with post-punk, post-metal, and sludge leanings to create an especially caustic compound.

Across the album, every shift in tone and tempo doesn't stray away from the gristly core -- rather, they reinforce it, adding dimensions and uncomfortable clarity. Starting off with grating alt-rock disaffection in "Lustre," the swaggering rock drive transitions into a layered post-metal soundscape in "Bleedback Loop": initial blackout rage finds eventual catharsis, but not without a struggle. The concluding track "The Great Reveal" echoes the opener's aggression like distant reverberations; filtered screams mourn inaudibly amongst percussion and disharmony.

Crafted with precision and sledgehammer-level impact, The Pulsing Wet EP follows a clearly defined arc as it wrecks you -- or maybe a circle, as it ends up in a spot where hitting play again feels like a natural move.

The EP is set to release on a date of some significance -- the summer solstice. Given the current circumstances, the band offers the following statement on its release:

It feels pretty disgusting doing any kind of self-promotion right now, so writing this gives me shitty vibes. We will be donating all proceeds from The Pulsing Wet to Black Futures Lab. I know we are a small band but, hopefully, we can raise enough to give them a couple of hundred bucks a couple of times. They are a wonderful organization.
