Continuous Spirit

Negazione were a fantastic hardcore band from Torino. Like fellow countrymen Raw Power, Negazione were pretty adept musicians who pushed beyond the usual fast loud rules mentality of the time. Lo Spirito Continua was the bands first full length album and it is a furious lasagna of aggressive riffs, crisp drumming, and throat shred vocalizing. Recently Negazione's drummer Fabrizio Feigl passed away and I was reminded of this album. Twenty-five years later it still works, perhaps that is the continuous spirit of which they spoke.

Thank you for this post, Aesop! I remembered Fabrizio as well, in my own way, 2 weeks ago. I think now more than ever Negazione's (and Kina's) lyrics work, especially when one considers how Italy is now.
