Candiria guitarist John LaMacchia has set a May 14th release for a new album from his Spylacopa project. That record has been titled “Beneath The Earth That Lies Beneath The Sea” and will arrive via his Rising Pulse Records.
An official press release mentions that the record is a ‘major departure’ from the project’s post-metal/post-hardcore roots with ambient and electronic elements becoming increasingly prevalent. A first single titled “Part I – Minauros” can be found below while pre-orders are live now at Bandcamp.
LaMacchia commented of the release:
“The title of the album came to me first. This looming question of what exists beneath the earth that lies at the bottom of the deepest ocean. It’s a very frightening thought to me and you can certainly hear that in the music. On the contrary it’s fascinating to think how peaceful it might be. This sacred place, unspoiled by humanity. Once I had the title I just kept creating music with it in mind and I wound up with this body of work.”
