ADRIANO VINCENTI & PAOLO BANDERA Ossido Di Cromo CD. Digipak
On the initiative on Adriano Vincenti (Macelleria Mobile di Mezzanotte etc.), the two have created a homage that unites a more modern medium and technology with the traditional methodology and technology of cassette tapes. In the truest traditions of the industrial underground, the album borrows, cannibalises and adapts material from others – for example Maurizio Bianchi and Metadrive – to create experimental sounds all their own. The history of the industrial underground is heavily present in the source material: the oldest recordings are from the mid-80’s.
The result? An album of experimental, challenging and even adventurous industrial electronics. Dubbing this noise or power electronics or any other of the many subgenres of industrial is impossible: there is a little bit of everything on Ossido Di Cromo. Ultimately, the album can be described as a throwback to an era before industrial electronics had fragmented to dozens of smaller niches; this is experimental underground electronics as its purest and finest.
