DESTINAZIONE FINALE: In Bilico Nel Reale: LP/CD

This Italian quartet knows how to tickle my fancy with a rip-roaring pace guiding its melodic hardcore along. It’s tight as hell, hits hard, and never wavers in quality across the thirteen tracks. I’ve long said that the Italian language has a quality which perfectly suits angry punk rock and that is once again the case here. It would be hard to deny the influence of the likes of Raw Power, Negazione, and, more recently, La Crisi, such is the strong ’80s hardcore feel to In Bilico Nel Reale and this would be an excellent addition to anyone’s collection if they enjoy those bands. The LP is available from the band and the CD from the U.K. label Serial Bowl. –Rich Cocksedge (Serial Bowl, [email protected], serialbowlrecords.bandcamp.com / Self-released, destinazionefinale.bandcamp.com)
