Multi-instrumentalist Dark Smoke Signal is synthwave producer Alex Pope from the new music hotbed of Bristol, UK.

His new album, ‘The Antipope Resurrection’ is a dystopian Dark Synth concept album – doffing a cap to bombastic works from the 1980s by the likes of Iron Maiden, Metallica and Depeche Mode aiming to give a little escapism from the pressures of the modern world. The album art is also a throwback to the detailed cassette covers that DSS used to pore over from the period. 

The album is the soundtrack to a horror film that has not been made; the Sci-fi tale of the apocalyptic return of the time-travelling Antipope in cyberpunk form, hell bent on revenge against the Catholic Church. Inspired by the real life figure from the 15th Century; Pirate Baldassarre Cossa who was Antipope John XXIII during the Western Schism. Aiming for a similar tone to the film Kung Fury, tracks have some outlandish themes including Nazi tank battles, nuclear warfare and cyborg bounty hunters! 

Incorporating elements of Metal, Dubstep, 90’s Trance, Nu-Metal, Gothpop and even Classical Music all flambéed with a splash of 80's cock-rock guitar into a melting pot of ingredients so uncool it’s delicious. DSS paints a dark cinematic world with splashes of colour to ease the tension. 

Tongue in cheek or earnest message? The listener decides. 

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.
