CD - 6 panel digipack edition.
“Post Tenebras Lux” is the second album by Blackened Doom / Noise project LACOLPA.
After the debut album “Mea Maxima Culpa”, which was released to critical acclaim in 2017 and ended up being featured in many album of the year charts by the likes of Cvlt Nation and The Wire Magazine amongst many others, LaColpa are back with their highly anticipated sophomore release.
“Post Tenebras Lux” is a monolithically dark and ominous album, showcasing how the band’s distinctive Doom / Noise sound has ultimately shape-shifted into something monstrously heavier and sludgier, all the while experimenting with some of the most painful soundscapes of improvisational noise and drone metal.
The end result is a 44 minutes long nightmare evoking menacing visions of pain, whilst the echo of our laments bounces around the infinite walls of Nothingness.
Thematically, this new album outlines LaColpa’s philosophy of pain, deeply rooted in the human condition of eternal suffering.
Agony is the only hope for transcendence, and yet here faith is worth nothing, because crosses are invisible and only pain is real.
Accepting defeat, embracing pain, becoming a martyr won’t lead to any illumination - but to the realisation that our existence is only an error, a mistake, a sin performed by God himself in the act of projecting an image of his real self upon us.
