Exclusive EP Stream: Opul’s Levels


Opul - LevelsGood morning, friends! Boy oh boy, do we have a special treat for y’all today: an exclusive stream of Levels, the new EP from Opul, the solo project from Matt Lupo, guitarist for perennial MetalSucks favorites East of the Wall!

Fully written, performed, recorded and mixed by Lupo himself, Opul is a wholly different beast from East of the Wall — the two projects have little in common besides a sense of creative adventurousness sorely missing from music today — but we’re still confident you’re gonna love it. Lupo’s spacey, soulful vocals, psychedelic, dreamy guitars, and surprisingly swing-infused drumming makes for an achingly beautiful, wholly unique aural experience. If the Star Child from 2001: A Space Odyssey were wearing headphones in that amniotic sac of his while he float through space, he would almost certainly be listening to Opul’s Levels.

Levels is out TODAY on Nefarious Industries. Stream it below, then purchase it here!!! And don’t forget to keep up with Opul via Bandcamp — Lupo is incredibly prolific (this is Opul’s fourth release in three years!), so he’s sure to offer up some new aural goodness in the not-too-distant future.
