HC4L035 ØJNE- Prima Che Tutto Bruci LP 12" (2018)
Melodic skramz in the style of their Italian forefathers, Raein and La Quiete This may be a controversial take, but I would say this is actually better than their widely adored predecessors. It's a pretty specific brand of screamo, putting wistful guitar work at the front, building tension with the drums and bass, and an absolute outpouring of passionate vocals. Where Øjne set themselves apart is making heavy use of the ebb and flow early post-hardcore and the shimmering beauty of crescendocore.
The vocalist is also a major highlight. There's something about his enunciation and the way he urges a climax upwards that violently yanks your heartstrings, and hands shaking, it takes all my self restraint to not scream along while in public. Spending some time with lyric translations is well worth it, as catharsis through resonance is the whole idea.Sull'altro lato del fiume is basically a perfect song. by : Menschenfeindlich
