#158 Illapa - Blood and Coca for our Warmaster
Another rip of mine for the patient among you. This is an EP by one of the more obscure acts from Peru. This oddly-titled release is a nod back to Incan (citation needed) cultures, reference tributes to gods and deities alike.
It's also quite a metal title, which is interesting. Although over here in the "cultivated" worlds, Coca makes me think of a hot beverage to send one to sleep - highly doubtful that this is what Illapa intended...
...Unless you really find the music boring and then it's a double whammy of accuracy! Last time I posted something from Peru, it was widely panned as one of the worst articles on the blog. Hopefully this will fare better, or I give up for now. (I have a lot more Peruvian stuff...).
Anyway, worth a listen, right?
