Review: Egestas – Oltre Le Rovine

Egestas, a long journey beyond the ruins Who said that you need a destination to start a journey?

Those who hesitate are lost, but those who never started walking were doomed from the beginning. In a voyage among the darkest faces of human conscience and nature, Egestas narrate a mankind in…

Review: norse – s/t

norse’s debut, among tears and punches in your stomach Do you know that feeling of suffocation, those moments when you want to scream but your voice chokes in your throat, and you just have to let yourself be dragged by your emotions, helpless in front of your helplessness?

Review: Motron-Who’ll Stop The Rain

Review: xDELOREANx/xDUHx – Split

xDeloreanx and xDuhx, cannonade from Tuscany From Tuscany with violence, comes this split between xDeloreanx and xDuhx, two bands from the Italian powerviolence scene, a concentrate of badness, nonsense and punches on your teeth that in about thirteen minutes will fuck your eardrums and your brain without  mercy. We start with Delorean from Florence, with their powerviolence from the future, that smash our faces with five short and powerful tracks. The lyrics are in English,…

Review: Pressa – Irresponsabilmente

True Working Class Oi! from the West Coast It’s already been one year since it was released, but this record by Pressa, a band from the province of Rome, is still fucking hot: the ideal album for Oi and street punk lovers, with melodies and choruses that immediately stick in your mind, and genuinely Working Class lyrics.
