A tasteful cover artwork with bathing macaque monkeys, childhood photos in an inlay, a meaningful Latin album title and the discreet puzzling hint in the liner notes: "This album was recorded with a self-centered, depressive philosophy" - the trio Ventura from French Switzerland obviously likes it a bit mysterious. And so is his music: heavy, dark Noiserock, deeply rooted in the nineties, when Chokebore were still scratching their depressive sadcore anthems and Nirvana was the band of the moment. Whether instrumental Wall-Of-Sound entry in the intro or monumental Progrock guns in the twelve-minute "Amputee" - Ventura play on their third album with the facets of the varied Noiserock, offer in their lyrics all kinds of mysticism space and remind of the early The Notwist. Despite the melancholic mood you remain melodic and accessible. An interesting band for fans of the genre, who like to look for answers between the lines.
