Hate & Merda are a band from Italy that has been featured before in this zine and plays a mixture of experimental, noise, alternative, hardcore and sludge metal and this is a review of their 2016 album "La Capitale Del male" which was released by Toten Schwan Records.
Spoken word parts start off the album and after a few seconds the music gets getting more heavier and distorted along with some drum beats and on the second track the music adds in elements of sludge and punk along with the heaviness of doom metal as well as some angry shouting vocals.
Elements of alternative can be heard in the bands musical style while some songs also bring in a small amount of clean playing and spoken word arts also return in certain sections of the recording and the music also gets experimental at times and also adds in a touch of noise and a couple of the tracks are very long and epic in length and one of the songs also brings in a small amount of clean playing.
Hate & Merda plays a musical style on this recording that takes the heaviness and doom metal while also being very experimental at the same time, the production sounds very dark and heavy while the lyrics are written in Latin and cover angry themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Hate & Merda and if you are a fan of experimental, sludge and doom metal, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "FOH" and "Vai Via". 8 out of 10.
