Dark Quarterer: Violence

Bizarre, twisted and living up to its title, Violence defies description. I've been sitting on the fourth album from the underground Italian cult trio Dark Quarterer for quite some time listening to it, thinking about it, taking a break from it and then coming back to it. The six songs here each take on radically different dimensions. There's the one with a sing-along chorus ("Black Hole"), the one with anxiety-ridden spoken-word passages ("Last Breath"), the one that sounds like old-school metal meets classic prog rock ("Deep Wake"), a brief acoustic rapture ("Calls"), the one with terrifying lyrics from the mind of a rapist ("Rape") and the last one ("Last Song"). I don't really have a favorite, as all of these leave me feeling slightly unsettled. Dark artwork and text that appears sketched by a psycho only enhance the discomfort associated with spinning this disc. Proceed with caution.
