Benvenuti all'Inferno!: una recensione pubblicata in origine su FaceBook!

Anche se Timpani allo Spiedo è ufficialmente inattiva, oggi pubblico un nuovo articolo, che però non è altro che la recensione di "Benvenuti all'Inferno!" che il mio fratello gemello e amicone Davide De Vito mi ha fatto a inizio anno su FaceBook. Aspettatevi una recensione-fiume, quindi lunghissima, ultra-dettagliata e anche molto obiettiva. Quindi, non posso che augurarvi buona lettura!

Timpani allo Spiedo: the end

Today the experience of Timpani allo Spiedo 'zine is over.
Sometime ago I explained the reasons leading to its end. Here I am going only to say that I've lost interest in the 'zine, and I feel I said everything I wanted and more. But I am proud of putting up an adventure lasted even 11 years. Thanks to it, I met many awesome bands but also many fantastic people, and with some of them I established great friendships, also recently. But I think also that Timpani would not have become what it is without the support it received throughout these years.
So, I thank all the collaborators I had, also those that the life divided us for some reasons.
I thank all the bands, the labels, the promotion agencies, the promoters and the managers that sent me their stuff, also giving me some t-shirts or stickers.
Thanks to all the people that participated in this adventure, also by answering to simple interviews.
And thanks to all those that, in a way or another, supported Timpani allo Spiedo, even by doing some donations or, simply, by sharing some articles somewhere.
Now, maybe I'll resume, in the future, the 'zine but, for the moment, the experience ends today and I am convinced of my decision. It's time to do new things, it's time of new projects, it's time of changes.
So, don't feel bad. Also because every ending is always a new beginning.

Thank you for all,


P.S.: in the pic there is a lot of stuff that was expressively sent for Timpani allo Spiedo. If I remember well, "Underground 'n' Roll" by Devastator has been the very first promo that, centuries ago, was sent to me. Even today I am used to listen to it with pleasure.

Come on, burn my ears! #14 (the final playlist)

And so, this is the very last episode of "Come on, burn my ears!", the main playlist of Timpani allo Spiedo!
This is a really special episode because, in it, I included the entire story of Timpani allo Spiedo 'zine, from its first number released through email in the far 2008 to this day. So, all the 31 bands featured represent, in a way or another, key pieces in the story of the 'zine.

Honorable Mentions from the Abyss #43: Esimere/Sarmat/Inhumanity Vortex/Kat

Hey futuristicmetalpunkers,
this is the very last episode of "Honorable Mentions from the Abyss" and one of the very last new articles on Timpani allo Spiedo zine. It is about 4 bands, one Italian and the other 3 from Poland, as usual in these last times. In fact, Timpani allo Spiedo, during these days, became in practice a webzine a lot focused on the Polish metal, and this is very curious.
Anyway, let's go to discover the bands... and see you soon with a surprise!

Honorable Mentions from the Abyss #42: Gasoline Guns/Sandbreaker/Ulcer/Faeces/The Black Thunder

Hey motordoomdeathmetallers,
this is the very last episode of "Honorable Mentions from the Abyss" dedicated to the releases I received from Mythrone Promotion. In fact, the albums contained in this episode all belong to the last pack that Mythrone sent to me one month ago circa.
All the bands in this article are Polish, except the Gasoline Guns, as you'll see soon. In addition, all the albums were released in 2021 in co-production by Defense Records and Mythrone Promotion, also in collaboration with other labels like Free Joy Stereo, as in the case of the Sandbreaker.
I advise that the next episode of "Honorable Mentions from the Abyss" will be the last one because, as I explained, Timpani allo Spiedo is going to end its activities.
And now, thanking Marcin of Mythrone Prom to sending me all these awesome albums throughout these years, let's go to discover the bands!

Honorable Mentions from the Abyss #41: Hammathaz/Dira Mortis/Ireful/Deathspawn/Incertus/Iscariota/Gnida

Hey extreme fuckin' metalbangers,
as I promised few days ago, here you are another episode of "Honorable Mentions from the Abyss" totally about the releases that I received ultimately in CD by Mythrone Promotion. This time you'll find albums mainly released by the sole Defense Records (Deathspawn, Incertus, Iscariota), also in co-operation with other labels like Voice Music (Hammathaz). But there is also an album edited under the auspices of Selfmadegod Records (Dira Mortis) while other 2 were self-released by the same bands (Ireful, Gnida).
And now, so let's go to discover the bands!
