6 tracks of sincere, furious Italian Hardcore Punk from Trento. After devestating Europe and intriguing the rest of the world by bringing back a revitalisation of what we all love about the bands that elevated from the Virus Squat and northern Italy in general in the early to mid 80's, Impulso is back with a even more concentrated hardcore attack. Dropping mysterious reverb and hall effects for the benefit of presence, crispness and pure attack force.
We are proud to introduce Impulso to Byllepest Distro's catalogue, as it has been one of our favorite european hardcore punk outfits since they came out. The EP "Costante Ossessione" is even more trueful to the genre, while still driving on amazing hooks and catchy songwriting, without ever letting go off their extremely sincere hardcore energy. Contains strong lyrics about personal, psychological and social tendencies that also affects our society and the political situation as a whole without ever leaning on cheap gimmicks. Their sincereness have been proven again and again both through music and the short, but on-point statements from the band between songs at live shows; regarding personal responsibility in the punk scene and mutual respect. A bullshit stripped, pure to the bone hardcore attack and a true treat to everyone who's a fan of anything from UPSET NOISE and CCM to contemporary hardcore!
Our take: Latest record from this Italian band on the Norwegian label Byllepest. With tight playing, a big sound, and adventurous songwriting, Impulso is tailor-made to appeal to the tastes of those of us who follow labels like Iron Lung and La Vida Es Un Mus. If you need your hardcore to rip hard, but you also want some fresh-sounding musical ideas Costante Ossessione will scratch that itch. When they kick into high gear, it’s all about the thrill of speed, but when they slow things down things get even more interesting, weaving between Blazing Eye-type catchy pogo and darker passages with creepy-sounding lead guitar. Excellent stuff.
