in the 26 minutes of this split is a view of the most extreme sounds
music has begotten till 2004, expressed in a harsh yet amusing manner
by Slancio anale (which means 'anal impulse' in English), whereas XnemisisX
seem not to have so much desire for jokes.
After the intro taken from 'Casa Vianello', a popular Italian TV series,
"Raimon Vianel" starts, followed by "*** Is
A Fucking Cunt", both in the sign of the most rotten grind
After the mocking cover "Abbronzatissimi", we have
the catchy "Grind Song" and an intro recorded from
the live voice of the unbearable knife-grinder and umbrella maker while
driving around with a megaphone looking for housewives and other customers;
then "L'arrotino" arrives; it's as lunatic a song as
the danceable "The Noise Brothers" and "123
la peppina fa il caffè". "Enjambement"
is quite short and "Tough Boy (theme from Hokuto no ken)"
An excerpt from a movie from the same actor is "Steven Segal",
while "Raimondo Vianello (la vendetta)" is preceded
by the introduction on to the stage of the popular Italian comic actor
"Pornocore Song" enjoys the most saturated of the 22
tracks shown by the 3-piece led by Rutto, followed by track n. 16, an
excerpt from a flick I haven't seen, probably because it was an awful
one; on the other hand "Black Metal Song" is
another grind song, this time with almost neat sounds; this doesn't
last long as S.A. jump back to their average ultradistorted sound with
"Even More Another Some AC Hits songs" (I beg your
The surprises ain't over thanks to the minute of "Pop-punk Song",
a marriage between pop punk on one side and grind noise on the other.
Anal Cunt covered "Stayin' Alive", Slancio Anale now
cover Anal Cunt with an effective and genial edge; "Nigger Song"
and "Surf Song" prove that the Pianoro trio has kept
the best performances for the final part of their side: the former is
groovy and brilliant, the latter is adrenalinic punk, then turning to
a mid-paced grind till the end.
After an intro "Dwarves" appears, the first real track
by XnemisisX, built through hyperfast drum programming and guitars which
are as violent and distorted as hell; this noise can be compared to
the Armageddon soundtrack for sure. "Sewn Shut" is
grind rock with raw vocals, while "Brake" is my favourite
one, thanks to the barks Flesh Parade trademarked, the lobotomized riff
and the crackling drum machine. "Drill" is up to its
name owing to the piercing vocals that'll make your fucking brain bleed,
"I Won't Leave" joins vocals a là Killjoy's
Necrophagia, grind ones and a mincecore music tissue.
Simply fantastic is the serial killer intro sample to "Pus Swamp",
a claustrophobic song like NIN's, who don't have the haunted vocals
the mysterious act has.
The distortion followed by the guitar stabs and unmerciful keyboards
lines of "Scurv" precede "Unfinistinguished",
a mere hardcore song sped up with a PC or more likely with just a tape
A song that Zenigeva - or at least their fans - would dig is "Soft-core
Sux", followed by the wicked "Grandfire" and
the conclusive "Don't Care", sound-wise deeply connected
to the undervalued Sore Throat, pungent forefathers of Anal Cunt and
Meat Shits, directly from the working class.
I honestly can't say which of the 2 is more insane, but if you're only
looking for something not committed, but deafening and politically incorrect
at the same time, you might as well need this real do-it-yourself co-production.
