Google Translation version of a review that originally appeared on Aristocrazia Webzine May 26 2014
Debutant with cubic balls : in this way we summarily describe the Atacama Death Experience , Rovereto duo formed by Romano ” Malaciort ” Monero ( bass and vocals ) and Antonio Iodice (drums), which spawned the beginning of this year the ep debut , ” Wasted Time And Broken Bones” .
Our proposal defines its ” nihilistic blues from the middle of nowhere ” , but it is a story told by a lot more caustic than almost twenty-six minutes that make up the disc. Tracks like “Fleece Of Time ” and ” Rotten Clouds” put it in plain Sludge shows a black , acid and monolithic : the musical structure , by virtue of a building provided only by bass and drums , it is pretty darn essential , but also exquisitely abrasive and grim. The Atacama Death Experience the classic sound of the kind of oppression are their main weapon and build atmosphere stifling , miasmatic and in addition slightly infected rancorous episodes in territories Crust .
In episodes like “Wasted Time And Broken Bones ” and ” Useless Blues ” is used instead approach a little ‘ different : while maintaining the dose of asphyxiating atmospheres , here is a facility to lord it over Stoner . We are just a shot in the ear sound pretty damn rough desert and corrosive, which we refer to people as Bongzilla and Weedeater , although it was put by the side of the most musically ” addict ” of the above in favor of a much heavier sound progression and acrimonious .
The choice of using only bass and drums, combined with a voice and dirty livorosa , is without doubt one of the keystones of the proposal of the duo, because the result is always drag near the perfect dose of depth and resentment that such a disc should necessarily contain.
So if you are lovers of Sludge and caustic products derived therefrom, the Atacama Death Experience for you and make sure I’m ready to bet that we will see more great following them closely. Trust me, listen to this work will not be wasted absolutely no time … Broken bones , yes, but no wasted time .
