PERTURBATOR – who received massive acclaim as the face of retro-inspired dark electronic music – breaks free from the ubiquitous cliches of “synthwave.” If the “New Model” EP , signaled a drastic sonic departure in Perturbator’s oeuvre, “Lustful Sacraments” witnesses further reinvention – ushering fans into deeper uncharted territories. “Lustful Sacraments” represents James “Perturbator” Kent's most mature work to date, merging the dark synthesized tones that made Perturbator a household name with classic post-punk, goth, and heavy techno rhythms. The album weaves Perturbator's classic cinematic atmosphere with thundering drums, subtle electronic melodies and in-your-face guitar hooks. This experimentation took a darker turn with his 2014 smash breakthrough “Dangerous Days” and went violently into the mire with 2016's Billboard-chart topping “The Uncanny Valley.” Five years since the release of his last album, “Lustful Sacraments” showcases the total evolution of an artist. The album continues Perturbator's nihilistic legacy of exploring future worlds, ones regarding humanity's inevitable downfall. “It's an album about bad habits, dissatisfaction and addiction. An overall look at how we, as a species, lean towards self-destruction,” James Kent states. Musically, “Lustful Sacraments” takes influences from post-punk and goth from the 1980s and early 1990s, while retaining the oppressive, dark electronic tones Perturbator is known for.
