- Visioni Sconvolgenti by Bruce Ditmas

Andy Votel, Sean Canty (Demdike Stare) and Doug Shipton’s superbly curated Dead-Cert label have compiled six incredible selected archive pieces from avant electronic percussionist/synthesist Bruce Ditmas. This is nightmarish electro-acoustic music at it’s terrifying finest. From the opening claustrophobic drone, crackling and atonal strings of opener ‘Incubo’, a huge force appears, sucking the oxygen from the room - like the manifestation of an incubus with bad intentions. ‘Reparto Totura’ is like being locked in a dungeon in hell, with brutal bangs/crashes like cannon shots cutting through the disturbing sound of swirling ghoulish phantoms - frantically hovering at hyperspeed. ‘Il terrore a luce verde’ is like some sort of alarm/siren has been activated - as though someone meddling in the occult has let an evil force enter this world and hit the panic button.
‘Visioni Sconvolgenti’ is somewhere between Nurse With Wound and Lustmord at their absolute blackest and the industrial ambient of the Eraserhead soundtrack - like tunneling deep into the earth's core, a suffocating vacuum of pure darkness. The demonic howls of ‘Bruciore Pelle’ are genuinely unsetting - as is the entire record. It’s so brilliantly and vividly realised that I lose all sense of there being a human that’s created sounds and feel like I’ve been sucked into some other place that makes the Black Lodge seem like playskool. A real gateway into the darkside. The EP closes with ‘Sega della morte’ and at this point the harsh high end and glassy sounds feel like they’re being absorbed into my body and cursing me. Like WTF?!?!? Forget your average Italian horror score/ spooky library record - if you’re seeking genuinely frightening music then ‘Visioni Sconvolgenti’ will put a fucking hex on your ass. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.
