Splatterpink were a Bolognese jazzcore quartet and this is (obviously?) their third album . The music contained is some of the most fiery in the whole genre, even compared to foreign bands. Coarse funk-blues shards, based on crunching, Primus-like basslines and tarry baritone sax bursts. Throaty vocals, often delving in growl and expressionist roars, cynical, crude lyrics and frantic odd-meter tempo shifts are other core elements of Splatterpink's arsonist formula. A scorching, reckless record which bears some resemblances to Anatrofobia, Zu and even King Crimson at times, but with an even more jolting attitude.
