Service communication:

if you don't still know the existence of it, my ebook about the first wave of black metal called "Nel Segno del Marchio Nero" was released on 24th March 2019. Unfortunately, it is written only in Italian but, surely, into it there aren't the over-rehearsed things à la Lord of Chaos. If you want to buy my ebook, you can order it through the best Italian and International stores like FeltrinelliIBSAmazon and Google Books. Thank you in advance!


I still remember, as if it were yesterday, how was bestial and intense the show that Cripple Bastards did last year at the Traffic Live Club in Rome. The violent moshpit, the hallucinated looks on us by Giulio the Bastard, the precise but devastating performances of the band, the general craziness of that night... WOW, that's I call a very fukken memorable gig! Well, Cripple Bastards come back today on these pages because now you're preparing to read a review about their 7th album "La fine cresce da dentro" (Italian for "the end grows within"). Even though it is relatively old since it was released in the end of 2018, I received it during the early days of 2019 by the Italian agency Anubi Press, whose owner Luca Pessina wrote many years ago for the now defunct Grind Zone, surely the most extreme metal magazine that you could to find at the Italian newsstands! Now let me say already that "La fine cresce da dentro" deserves a lot but it cannot be otherwise also because it is the second album of the band released by Relapse Records, a label always ready to release very extreme but also a bit unconventional stuff. And Cripple Bastards are both!
