Post Death Soundtrack – “Through the Gates”

The consumingly dark psychedelic trip-hop sound of Post Death Soundtrack was previously covered on tracks “You Can’t Go Back” and the remix of “Beauty Eyes I Adore“, though new release “Through the Gates” certainly competes to be the most chilling. A stark piano leads the initial melody, seemingly fit for a classic horror film. The emotive and creaky vocals fit the piano instrumental well, especially as they raise into a ceremonial-like fervor just before the three-minute mark, leading into a “just like that” whisper and ascension into more stirring keys and a choir-like conclusion. This track, written by Colin Everall and Post Death Soundtrack, is another atmospherically chilling success from this┬áproject.
