Rose's quarantine playlist: let the music scream for you! #2

Hola, amigos! As the weekend approaches, I’ve come up with a brand new playlist!
This time, I’m focusing on the Italian punk hardcore scene; in fact, since the ‘80s, it is undeniable that Italy has delighted its punk audience with absolutely brilliant hardcore punk bands!
And, since we’re stuck at home (I know, there’s no need to underline it, but I’m a bit of a sadist :D), we can use our precious time to explore these bands and noisy sounds!

Honorable Mentions from the Abyss #19: Anifernyen/Humanart/Ruach Raah

Hey brutalbangers,
I remember that once Portugal seemed to not have so many good bands, and one can say that its only relevant band was Moonspell  and that's it. But, during these last years, its metal scene exploded a lot, exposing very talented bands especially in the black metal (Black Circle, anyone?) and thrash metal genres, and many of them, like Toxik Attack or Black Cilice, are now definitely into my insatiable heart of metalhead always ready to fall in love with fresh music.
So, needless to say, this new episode of "Honorable Mentions from the Abyss" (no reviews, no votes, only "honorable mentions") is entirely focused on some of the 2019 Portuguese black metal albums that I received during these last months. So, you'll have other amazing stuff to listen to in this time of forced quarantine.

Honorable Mentions from the Abyss #18: Ruin Lust/Miscarriage/Kuroi Jukai/Depressor

Hey brutalbangers,
the new episode of "Honorable Mentions from the Abyss" is particularly extreme, not only because it is entirely focused on some of the last releases by the Sentient Ruin Laboratories (a label perfect for everyone into "ugly" but unconventional sonorities) but also because you are going to know very sick bands. So, forewarned is forearmed!


Rose's quarantine playlist: let the music scream for you! #1

Let's face it: we're  going through a very tough moment of our lives. At present, our freedom is jeopardised, and this pandemic is damaging the entire world.
It's hard to stay positive (I'm quoting a band :P) but we can make it! How? I know it's hard, some of you are losing their hope... but (there is always a BUT in this imperfect world!) there are many ways to cope with this unpleasant scenario... and the first thing that comes to my mind is... MUSIC!
Ok, we can't go to a concert, see the bands playing, do the "pogo dance"! But we can definitely use our imagination and pretend to be part of a music event. So, let's use our lazy brains! :D

Defechate: released a single very fit for these hard times!

Hey brutal bangers,
the Italian death metal duo Defechate, in which there is on vocals/bass a certain Giuseppe "Tato" Tatangelo (already known on these pages for his militancy in bands like Glacial Fear and A Buried Existence), released recently on YouTube "Uomo ossidato" (Italian for "Oxidized Man"), a song taken from their upcoming debut full-lenght.

xQuarantenaxDeliriumx: a new HC punk project in the time of Coronavirus...

Hey brutal bangers,
this fukken quarantine, despite everything, is unleashing the creativeness of the people. For example, a new HC punk project (or band?) is born in Rome and its suburbs so to "break down the boredom in quarantine". And it isn't a case if its moniker is xQuarantenaxDeliriumx.
