SantAAgostino - Operazione Paura CD (Greytone)

Add to Cart

Based on the track titles and the involvement of former members of Onirot, I expected cavernous Italian death industrial which you can rarely go wrong with. What I got turned out to be much less predictable. Operazione Paura could be best summarized as an updated take on Fabio Frizzi's horror film scores, with the plodding electronic rhythms considerably hardened up, the tone oscillations turned into roaring buzzsaws and the voodoo percussion loops getting mixed with glitchy crepitations. The glossy digital production may drive off those still perpetually stuck in lo-fi fetishism, but the rest of you should definitely give this one an ear.
