Disprezzo - Nel Mio Mondo Il Sole Non Sorge Mai LP/CD

Somehow today came up to my head this CD I wasnt listening to for long time. Despice my musical taste mutation in the last year, this album still has the same effect on me he had when i was listening to shitty d-beat. Disprezzo came from Firenze in italy, homeland of a long tradition of anarchism and punk (remember the 80's infamous Granducato Hardcore?). They played heavy and dark crust with some good healthy d-beat involved. Their first release "un giorno" was kinda mediocre, but with this full length they pushed themselves to the best limits of crust genre. With excellent sound (meaning heavy not expensive as most metalheads think) they create a very emotional atmosphere in few songs. The name of the album (which is also the name of first track) means "in my world sun never rises", a concept that is transmitted perfectly by some of their tracks. Second track "London" is a musical adaptation to William Blake's poem:

"I wander thro' each charter'd street,
Near where the charter'd Thames does flow
And mark in every face I meet
Marks of weakness, marks of woe.

In every cry of every Man,
In every Infants cry of fear,
In every voice: in every ban,
The mind-forg'd manacles I hear

How the Chimney-sweepers cry
Every blackning Church appalls,
And the hapless Soldiers sigh
Runs in blood down Palace walls.

But most thro' midnight streets I hear
How the youthful Harlots curse
Blasts the new-born Infants tear,
And blights with plagues the Marriage hearse."

Track 5 and 7 are the best in my opinion, while last but not least "caggiano mosh" is a heavyasfuck death march.
They were probably te best italian crust band ever and they broke up almost 3 years ago, I never had the chance to see them live. Giulio the singer want to live in London and sung for short time in Give Up All Hope (super dbeat group eith ex members of Doom and Health Hazard) with whom he recorded "Nowhere to hide form yourself" 7" before he left punk and became a buddhist. The italian remainings of Disprezzo formed Giuda,a fast crust-japcore band, very good. Disprezzo's guitar player plays bass aslo in Disarm, italian powefuckingviolence.

They had a website once containing their excellent lyrics, but looks like it expired, so here's some Shitspace page
