Eight years in the making and with little fanfare, underground alternative metal project Spylacopa released ‘Parallels’ on March 31st via Rising Pulse Records. Consisting of members of Candiria, ISIS and Battle of Mice; Spylacopa are technically a supergroup, but more so the pet project of John LaMacchia.
This is an eclectic sound if you’ve ever heard one, first single ‘Hexes’ is not at all reflective of the diversity and emotion on display on this album. The angular and emotive croon of Julie Christmas is on display on a number of tracks, complimenting the pulsating psychedelic groove of LaMacchia, not to mention the dynamic shifts created by Caxide’s bass drift, at times bringing the Palms and ISIS atmosphere to the forefront.
