THE PERPETUAL MOTION MACHINE
Could this be Tony Soprano’s favorite hardcore band (besides North Side Kings, of course)? Spastic yet casting a strangely beautiful aesthetic throughout is the best way to describe the Italian hardcore outfit La Quiete and their latest release TENPEUN ’01-’05. Providing a retrospective of the band’s entire out of print, compilation, and rare materials all in one cohesive package, this 19-track affair provides a really great way to get acquainted with this powerhouse unit whose boundless musical explorations and manic maulings meet somewhere in the middle to create true hardcore bliss. If you dig a lot of what the label Level Plane puts out or are infatuated with angular hardcore with a left of center vibe, then this disc is a must have for your collection.
