Candiria‘s John LaMacchia and his Spylacopa project been toying with a wealth of different styles and genres since their 2008 debut EP, and always seem to find new avenues to explore. LaMacchia explores rock, post-hardcore, post-metal, electronic and countless other musical styles with this project, and utilizes the help of impressive collaborators such as The Dillinger Escape Plan‘s Greg Puciato and Made Out of Babies‘ Julie Christmas to give his multifaceted compositions some extra flair. Each release so far has not be indicative of the one to proceed it, as Spylacopa‘s music has been in stylistic flux so far. So it should be no surprise to listeners that the project’s newest offering, Demon John, is a different animal than its 2015 predecessor, Parallels.
Lament Cityscape and Theologian have released the third of four audio teasers from their upcoming collaborative album, Soft Tissue. This newest teaser is for a track called “We Are All Barbaric Scum” and shows a glimpse into the more somber side of the record. Check out the teaser after the break and be sure to check out the previously-released clips here and here.
Soft Tissue has no officially release date at this time.
New York metallic hardcore/chaotic metalcore outfit Bleak made quite an impression on extreme music fans with their 2015 debut, We Deserve Our Failures. Their multitude of previous splits and EPs wouldn’t prepare listeners for the dismal and nauseatingly complex gutter bombing they would behold on that half-hour of madness. Bleak stayed true to their namesake by offering dark songs filled to the brim with hopelessness, magnified by unorthodox instrumentation that verged on abstraction, while staying firmly rooted in hardcore and metalcore. Needless to say, it was a grim and gruesome feat. Now, not even a full year later, the Syracuse outfit returns with their second full-length offering. The aptly titled No Light, No Tunnel sees the band returning to the blackened sonic abyss once more with 10 new tracks of blistering, flesh-ripping heaviness.
