review by Sara "Shadow Lady" De Vita____
compilation is a good way to promote bands from the underground that, in
this way, put themselves side to side with other musical realities,
managing to propose their music by putting on CD their best song, or the
one that has been mostly liked during the live performances.
with this spirits are wild compilations born. An idea of Rosario Modica
and Emanuel Cannizzaro (Wild Zine staff) proposing bands of the Italian
underground that in this last year shown maturity and and the
possibility of joining their forces in a compilation.
COMPILATION 3 is based on death-black-gothic and crossover sonorities.
the bands are worthy: valid compositions, discrete recording, and chief
of all excellent ideas… sometimes it’s hard to imagine that the
underground keeps for itself these precious pearls: it should be time
that some label would come and propose them to the big market!!!!
been particularly hit by Brutal Faith with
their “In The Mouth Of Suffering”: dark and deep Black with
heavy and decadent guitar riffs that slide on a cadenced and massive
drum working. Frenzy rhythms and a remarkable growl-scream. Too bad the
song fades out…
impact is in “Fear West” by Deforme,
an heterogeneous sound passing from rhythmic riffs in full death-style
to rides and rearing of almost thrash soloes. A sound strongly
remembering the good old Death style, the one that made of the band of
the missing Chuck Shuldiner the standard of death sound.
veins are found in the aggressive and powerful “Lambaste” by Doggo.
A song sometimes a bit imprecise, yet developing very good ideas
allowing a recognition of how much this band could show… I’d like to
hear their demo: I’m sure I’d be struck!!!
are bands in this compilation like Golem
with their “Your Deepest Fear”, the OTX-2
with “Human Nature” and Spellcraft
with their “Equilibrium” that in my opinion have enough
maturity and all the good cards to do the big step and be thrown into
the “jaws” of a metal audience always hungry of new sounds and
in embryo the ideas and expressions of Aneurism
(“The Cavern”), that should be more developed and evaluated.
Same for Hateseeder (“Secret Force
Emotion”), Juglans Regia
(“Pioniere”), Contatto Estremo
(“War Calls War”)
and the Necrotorture
(“Pleasures Of The Moribund”).
There are still a bit of shadows for the Overflow with their “Disco F@ck”, as well as for Putrid Flesh (“Battle Cry”), Sothis (“Requiescant In Pacem”) and SRL with their claustrophobic “Ultima Ora”.

COMPILATION 4 as well is based on obscure and decadent sonorities such as
death-black-gothic, coupling bands that can play with a captivating and
is “1000 Wolvens” by Delirium X Tremens:
a song literarily leaving out of words with sound coupling rhythm
accelerations in black key and guitar plays of a clear death mark.
fantastic is “Reaper” by Skyriders.
An evil and aggressive song surprising in excellent
tempo changes and unexpected musical resolutions that amaze as you go on
with the listening. A very refined Death abiding to the standard of this
genre yet never shadowing the individuality of the band itself.
as said for WILD COMPILATION 3, there are bands that have yet to work a lot
on their ideas, trying to perfect some still bare resolutions that sometime
exceed in banal ideas absolutely superfluous.
in all the n. 4 respect to n. 3 (unavoidable a comparison) is a bit less
interesting and maybe more self-defeating for some bands that cannot show
out their entire work.
only flaw of a compilation is exactly this: it gives you just a taste of
what is a complete and complex work of a band and it is impossible to do an
accurate evaluation. Therefore I allow myself (when and where I will be
allowed to) to listen the works of these bands in their whole.
