about

Post Death Soundtrack is a Canadian inter-city music collective consisting of Kenneth Buck, Steve Moore and Jon Ireson. Founded in Calgary in 2007 by Buck and Moore, the band now operates out of Vancouver, Calgary and Toronto using the magic of the internet to collaborate across the country. The group creates thought-provoking music by weaving together electronic, industrial, pop and rock sounds. Side-line.com calls their sound “indefinable" while Reflections of Darkness calls them "by no means music for simple minds”.

On September 16, 2008, founding members Buck and Moore released Post Death Soundtrack’s debut full length album Music as Weaponry. Taking influence from bands like Massive Attack and Skinny Puppy, ‘Music as Weaponry’ earned top reviews from publications such as Industrial.org, Side-line Magazine and Sphere Magazine who called the record "a chaotic concoction of crossover madness" adding "this is the soundtrack to your escape from the average". Their popular cover of Dead Can Dance's ‘Anywhere Out Of The World’ was met with praise overseas in Europe.

Also that year, the group recruited bassist and producer Jon Ireson with whom Buck and Moore had shared various stages with in previous incarnations. Jon, in turn brought on Colin Everall to help out on piano and drums.

In 2010, Post Death Soundtrack released their single ‘Ultraviolence’ with accompanying video, directed by Jeevin Johal. Along with the release of new music (‘Little Alice’ and ‘Our Time Is Now’) and a series of remixes from Music as Weaponry, the band assembled for a rare live performance opening for industrial pioneers Front Line Assembly.
Now after a 3 year hiatus, Post Death Soundtrack is back with The Unlearning Curve. The latest 9 track collection is an eclectic narrative about dropping concepts, healing and venturing into the unknown. Equal parts Alice in Wonderland, J. Krishnamurti and dream language, The Unlearning Curve pulls as much from psych era Beatles and David Bowie as it does from modern industrial rock. The record was recorded at a number of studios, primarily in Vancouver. It was mastered at Suite Sound Labs, Vancouver and the album cover is an original painting by Toronto artist Kayla Aileen Brown. The album is available as a free download as well as in limited edition vinyl format.

Track Name: That Which Is
Calm
Be calm
Don't let it stop you
The noise of unease
Don't turn and run
Breathe

The flame burns all the while
The power never left
The mouth still smiles

Dark passenger could not touch it
False teacher could not snuff it out
Disease could not reach it
All the knives could not cut it down

Not anxiety
Not death
Not pain
Not regret

That which is immovable is within
That which is always with you knows the way
Knows the way
Knows the way
Knows the way
Knows the way
Track Name: You Can't Go Back
They have not been where you've been
They have not seen what you've seen
So why do they play a game with you when all the rules are untrue?

You can never go back
Once you've crossed over
You can't go back
The system is out of order

We all throw our hands out like serpents lashing out
Serpents lashing out
You can't go back

You fall down the rabbit hole
A strange light will guide you
Never sure of anything again
But the love inside you

You can never go back
Once you've crossed over
You can't go back
The system is out of order

We all throw our hands out like serpents lashing out
Serpents lashing out
You can't go back

They want you to have a 'conversation'
Ooooooh, they must be insane
You've spoken in tongues and heard the bells ring
Ooooooh, you've erased the pain

You've erased the pain
(Don't be afraid)
You've erased the pain
(Don't be afraid)
You've erased the pain
(Don't be afraid)
You've erased the pain
(Don't be afraid)

You've erased the pain
Track Name: Our Time is Now
Come on
You're terribly late
We need to get started

Our time is happening now
We will not hesitate
There are no questions to ask
We will not hesitate

We will not hesitate
We will not calculate
Forget the reason and the rhyme
Scale back and refuse with power

If you engage and disengage at the same time
You have the power
They don't have the power
You have the power
They...can't touch you

Our time is happening now
We will not hesitate
There are no questions to ask
We will not hesitate

I feel just like a molotov cocktail
Lit up and ready to explode
Derail and burn this train full of dead people
We're all just playing around
Telling a bad joke on ourselves
I say "tear up the script and let the bastards sweat it out."

Take it away, boys
Take it away
Track Name: Beauty Eyes I Adore
Beauty eyes I adore
Deadly eyes I'm yours
And I feel your gaze
Draining, taking my soul

Forever bleeding
My heart cannot see you coming
Splitting wide open
Now I can feel it...nothing

Beauty eyes I adore
Deadly eyes I'm yours
And I feel your gaze
Draining, taking my soul

And for now time will trickle slow
As I sew my incisions
Tonight I believe in nothing
And you believe in me
Track Name: Arrhythmia Dreaming
Something is coming over me
Something that can't be spoken to
An energy is coursing through me
That can't be calmed

You wanted a game rigged in your favor
A false Universe set out for failure
Pulling the strings on your chosen saviour
Now it's just you and I...

I'm guilty
(Pull me in the water. I'm the one you want.)
Come get me
(Pull me in the water. I'm the one you want.)

A restless animal pretending to dream
Can you relate?
Are you just like me?
Our hopes become facade
My hopes were sold to me as lies
Sold back to me in plastic packaging

I am the predator
Born in confusion
I spent my life suffering from illusions
If your creation wants something from me
Take my hand
See if you can drown me
Track Name: Little Alice
(Show me the way through this tightening noose
We'll get high on the other side
Just one kiss before we say goodnight
Kneel before your broken master and taste his defeat
Oh, succulent depraved soul
Let me sink my teeth in thine flesh)

Pretty little thing with your high heels on
You'd better soak up admiration until the pain is gone
Your creamy plastic face and your robot soul
Are going to beg for a savior when you've lost control

You take a pawn from the bottom and you chop it's head off
You take a puppet from the middle and you put it on top

It's just a game!
It's a crutch to keep you balanced
It's a cage to keep you safe
It's a roof to keep you grounded
It's a leash to slow your pace
It's just a game!

You pray to your Idols
They just pray for themselves
All your heroes came to this world
STRAIGHT FROM HELL!
So indulge yourself, you fat, spoiled child
We've got a full house and the Queen is wild!

You take a pawn from the bottom and you chop it's head off
You take a puppet from the middle and you put it on top

It's just a game!
It's a crutch to keep you balanced
It's a cage to keep you safe
It's a roof to keep you grounded
It's a leash to slow your pace
It's just a game!
Track Name: Through the Gates
Send your men from the fields and the ocean
Ideology in stillness and motion
The illusion of standing your ground
False faces of the lost and the found
Everyone wants to have and to hold
How many of us just let go?

I'm walking through the gates
Nobody gets through
I'm walking through the gates
I'm nobody

Your conclusions of passion and rage
Take the scraps and throw them away
Unaffected
Suspended in air
Without a face
Without a care

Lightning strikes somewhere inside
Just...like...that
The fear has died

I'm walking through the gates
Nobody gets through
I'm walking through the gates
I'm nobody
Who are you?
Track Name: Dance with the Devil
Demon, you can move on
Get up
Get your shoes on
Everything just waits for you
I'll see you again someday too

You clung to me on the inside
Oh, frightened child with your eyes so wide
A long time ago you ran from the light
And now you want to dance with the devil tonight

Dance with the devil
Dance with the devil tonight
Track Name: Transform in White Light
You've searched for answers and found only fear
Dreamt of illusions that never appeared

No one knows what we are
Lay your weapons down
Just let your colors run
Transform in white light

You've lived on your knees
Oh, you've waited in line
You've broken fully
Believed in their design
You licked the broken glass for a taste of the truth
Only to find out the answer is in you

No one knows what we are
Lay your weapons down
Just let your colours run
Transform in white light

Transform in white light
