PSICO GALERA: Le Stanze Della Mente: LP

Demented hardcore from Italy with members from La Piovra and Smart Cops. Fast and frightening punk delivered with a fervor much like Italian legends Peggio Punx, but with nods toward 45 Grave and Rudimentary Peni death rock. The band’s name translates to “Psycho Jail” from Italian, and given the suffocatingly claustrophobic nature of the music herein, I’d say it’s quite fitting. –Juan Espinosa (Beach Impediment, beachimpedimentrecords.bandcamp.com)
