In ricordo di Claudia

Purtroppo ci ha lasciati una nota agitatrice della scena underground romana, attivissima in vari progetti anche musicali (fra cui il gruppo crust/grind xCaracox) e pure co-proprietaria dell'importante negozio di dischi Inferno Store.
Ti vogliamo ricordare mentre ti divertivi a cantare proprio con i xCaracox, in una foto scattata il 2 marzo 2019 al Malatempora, in una di quelle bellissime pomeriggiate hc organizzate dal locale e che quel giorno vide in scaletta anche i giovani Ira.

Ciao Claudia

Ci mancherai a noi tutti

Tutti Pazzi #25 (2020)

Tutti Pazzi
Genere: Fanzine
Pagine: 50 in A4
Data di uscita: 28 settembre 2020
Voto: 78/100

Oggi praticamente si parla della Storia. Infatti, l'oggetto di questa recensione è il 25esimo numero di Tutti Pazzi, nome preso dall'omonima canzone del gruppo hc punk torinese Negazione. Si tratta di una fanzine il cui primissimo numero è uscito perfino nell'ormai lontanissimo 1986, e credo che già per questo il lavoro di Roberto, che la gestisce da sempre, sia da lodare a prescindere. Andiamo quindi a scoprire questa bella fanza!

Hey black metal maniacs,
Francesco Bazzurri strikes again!
After reviewing the Tristwood's new album with enthusiastic tones, he interviewed them. Its his first interview for Timpani allo Spiedo 'zine and I have to say that this debut as interviewer is fantastic not only because his questions are very good but also because Neru, the Tristwood guitarist, answered in a very interesting way. The consequence of all this is that we are in presence of a in-depth interview that is about not only the (black metal) music but also about the Art in its general  concept, crossing boundaries that are not so common in our metal world.
So, here you are the first interview by Francesco. Enjoy it!

Destinazione Finale - "In bilico nel reale" (DIY Co-production, 2019)

Band: Destinazione Finale
Title: In bilico nel reale
Genre: Hardcore Punk
Time: 18.23 min
Release date: 11th December 2019
Vote: 95/100

Hey old-school hc kids,
some weeks ago the Italian label Calimocho Autoproduzioni DIY sent us 6 interesting releases belonging to the hardcore punk spectrum and the first one we reviewed is this "In bilico nel reale", debut album of Destinazione Finale ("final destination") released in a gigantic co-production that engaged the following realities: Calimocho Autoproduzioni, Zas! Autoproduzioni, Passione Nera Records, Lanterna Pirata, Punti Scena Records, Disastro Sonoro, Barrio 315, M.A.D. Productions, Radio Punk, Malapaga Records, Massimo Dolore.
Destinazione Finale, that ultimately replaced their bassplayer Jacopo, already replaced by the new entry Nicco, are an Italian quartet from Tuscany whose sound is pure hardcore punk rooted in the classic Italian tradition, so bands like Negazione (a band whose "Lo spirito continua" was, indeed, covered by Destinazione Finale), Indigesti and the likes come easily in mind.
But this is only my intro, because the album has been enthusiastically reviewed by our beloved Francesco Bazzurri, so please read his fantastic review and let us know if you like this band.

Come on, burn my ears! #12

Hey brutal bangers,
the last episode of "Come on, burn my ears!" was published even in October 2020, so it's a lot of time that I didn't publish a new episode of the main Timpani allo Spiedo's playlist. So, the time has come to refresh this playlist, also because, in the meantime, we received many new bands, and this way is perfect to listen to them before we'll review them.

Honorable Mentions from the Abyss #35: Jesus Wept/Netherblade/Sacrocurse/Satanize/Sickle of Dust/Sviatibor/Throneum

Hey brutal bangers,
today you have to read another appointment with "Honorable Mentions from the Abyss", the column in which I am used to talk shortly about albums without writing real reviews.
This new appointment is more metal than the previous one, so expect to read about bands that range from bestial black/death metal to atmospheric black metal, and not forgetting a little of thrash metal to bang your fuckin' heads!
Enjoy this article and discover all the following acts!

Honorable Mentions from the Abyss #34: !T.O.O.H.!/Bas Rotten/Dropdead/Fuck the Facts/Hanging Fortress/Perdition Sect/Intolerant

Hey brutal bangers,
it's a lot of time that I don't publish a new appointment with "Honorable Mentions from the Abyss". Finally, here you are a new episode of this column. This time you'll read about 7 bands... but they are only a part of the very stuff that I received in these last months!
Unfortunately, I must still prepare a year-end Top Ten, that now is a classic for the 'zine for some years, and I don't want to break this tradition, so expect news about this thing.
No other words, let's go already to discover the bands!
