AUTOCANCRENA ''Morbida quiete'' C-40 (Sold Out)
Autocancrena returns to Angst for the fifth time with its most ambitious and best release to date. The project, now based in the UK, was spawned 12 years ago from the highly insalubrious environment of the swamps on the outskirts of Rome, but definitely had very little in common with the ''scene'' of the nearby city. Unsatisfied, cultivating its isolation and otherness, drawing inspiration from old italian industrial and north european postmortem, it quickly developed its personal language and very specific visions and obsessions. No hype, no cheap googled autopsy pics, but not much shiny italian sun either. Conceived during an endless journey through Southeast Asia, for a very long time in the making, Morbida Quiete is an effective exploration of recursive stillness and stagnation of the soul achieved through manipulation of ritual sounds, tape loops and raw electronics.
