In the last death throes of 2014 Coph Nia gave the signal of reanimation, blowing the dust of the gathering shadows of darkness and from the depths came forth A Prelude To Lashtal Lace. Absence seems to have darkened Aldenon even further with his Neo-Occult-Folk-Classical-DarkPop now polished to perfection. Lashtal Lace is a beautiful black menacingly melancholic masterpiece. Mother Of Songs – A neoclassical hymn for the damned conjuring the perfect sinister soundscape. One of the things that has always greatly impressed me about Coph Nia and made them one of the stand out bands when they were on Cold Meat Industry, is Aldenon’s ability to take a well known song, deconstruct the music element completly and like Baron Frankenstein constructs a monster of such magnificence, as to leave one breathless. Here we find New Order’s In A Lonely Place wreathed in the depths of velvet darkness, creating the soundscape of the most desolate, depressive and lonely place on the planet. An Epic track! The E.P closes with a Seancetronica remix of Lashtal Lace.
