Genre/Influences: Industrial, Death-Industrial, Experimental.
Format: Digital, CD.
Background/Info: Gianluca Becuzzi is part of the Italian Experimental/Industrial scene. He’s been active since the 80s and has released an impressive number of productions by very different labels. This album is a reissue of “We Can be Everywhere” originally released in between 2012 and 2013 plus an extra disc featuring new material.
Content: Gianluca Becuzzi clearly has this typical ‘early 80s’ Industrial/Experimental sound running through his work. Heavy monstrous sound blasts, boiling noises, minimalistic passages, Industrial rhythms and heavy, shouts sound like a sonic offspring between Industrial, Death-Industrial and pure Experimental music. It reminds me a bit of an imaginary crossover between Dissecting Table and Brighter Death Now. Most of the cuts are collaborations with other artists featuring Deison.
The second disc exposes 4 cuts written between 2022 and 2023. The sound remains Industrial-like but mainly carried by Industrial guitar play reminding me of early Swans.
+ + + : What I like with this album is the early Industrial spirit getting us back to the 80s. The work stands for a great melting pot between different related genres but also an impressive arsenal of noises and effects while the harsh shouts inject an extra, tormented, touch.This is a great work and I especially recommend listening to “Souls At Zero Density” and “Farer Than Ever”. From the second disc I’ll keep in mind “Be” and “Everywhere”. Last but not least I also salute the artistic digipak format of the work.
– – – : This is extreme music for a restricted number of music lovers. It might be too ‘extreme’ or Experimental for others.
Conclusion: This is a great album by a great artist and a true reference in the early Industrial music genre.
Best songs: “Souls At Zero Density”, “Farer Than Ever”, “In Black Two” + “Be”, “Everywhere”.
