Travel Along Blackened Doom Noise Pathways With LACOLPA “The Last Amethyst Deceiver” (COIL cover)

We humans are so arrogant that we think that we’re the only creatures on this planet who really communicate when millions of years before we ever thought of it, the earth had its own fiber optic cables running through the soil of every land mass on the planet. We should be bowing down to the fungal intelligence that has connected every growing thing for the past close to a billion years. That’s what I’m feeling as I listen to LaColpa take me on a mycelium highway to an invisible universe with their Blackened Doom/Noise cover of Coil’s “The Last Amethyst Deceiver”! Their sound fluctuates like a message racing along stromata from otherworldly being to otherworldly being. This track is the first chapter of a trilogy of digital releases leading up to LaColpa’s much anticipated new album via Brucia Records, and it’s an homage to a band that pushed boundaries. LaColpa’s “The Last Amethyst Deceiver” is streaming everywhere today — get it here or stream it here — and we’re also lucky to be sharing the visualizer for this unsettlingly beautiful track below.

LaColpa really wish to pay homage to one of the most innovative bands ever, revealing how Coil have always been a source of inspiration for them. Decoding and reinterpreting one of Coil’s last great sonic manifestations, LaColpa created something vast and meditative, capturing and expanding upon the looming, unmistakable sense of impending loss that was typical of the magical music created by Balance, Christopherson and Co.
