Steal This Track: Il CattivoBy Josh Johnson | February 5th, 2013 | No Comments »
Greetings, thieves. This week weâ€™ve got a new track from the Denver hard rock band Il Cattivo.
In Italian, â€śil cattivoâ€ť means â€śthe ugly.â€ť And itâ€™s an apt name for this Denver band that explores cathartic release through blistering, brutal music. And itâ€™s not because they are ugly, but more because they are interesting in exploring and possibly releasing the ugly. Surprisingly, with all its intensity, the music maintains a captivating blues groove that makes you want to move. This is not noise core, or any â€ścore,â€ť really.
The bandâ€™s second LP also has an apt name, â€śHow to Assess Your Damages.â€ť It may not play out like a guidebook, but in the process of absorbing this music, your damages will be realized.
Here, we give you â€śMarch First.â€ť The complete album is available on the bandâ€™s website.
