Vatican City - 2050

It began with the cavernous chant. A neon blue fissure opens up over the square, a dark figure emerges.

Angels fall from the sky as flames erupt around the imposing Basilica. Where once white smoke rose, an obelisk now falls.

Tanks emblazoned with an ancient symbol, now an emblem of evil, provide covering fire into the distance as the Priest Runner Units lock onto their targets.

The final schism has begun

Special thanks goes to my beautiful and tolerant Chloe, to Joe Ward for being the first believer and to all you synth-heads out there supporting the scene, thank you.

✟✟✟ REVIEWS ✟✟✟

"Dark Smoke Signal has made one hell of a darksynth album. It’s certainly one of the best that I’ve heard this year. It isn’t easy to make a full-length that sounds, feels, and bangs as good as this one. I can foresee “The Antipope Resurrection” being in my regular rotation of music for years to come." - Nikoletta Winters, Loveacrosslightyears.com

"When it comes to dark, twisted and heavy synth sounds, Dark Smoke Signal has outdone himself on The Antipope Resurrection. This is an album that has a gut punch to it, and the shadows it casts are darker than the dark itself. There is an abundance surging bass, pulsing drums and rough-edged, cutting synth throughout the album. Surprisingly, there are also moments of warmth, as gentler, more flowing synths contrast the weight and aggression of the other elements on the album. However, make no mistake, this is darksynth at its most in your face and aggressive." - Karl Magi, Spinditty

"One thing this album does well to avoid is revisiting earlier sounds and ideas and you certainly don’t ever hear the same thing twice. The tracks all seem to have their own identity and play an important role in his story. ‘Purgatory Waltz’ is without a shadow of a doubt, one of the most f**ked up songs I’ve ever heard!" - Joe Ward, ForeverSynth
