Chaos. Ugly, blackened chaos. Underground hardcore punk with more anger and bile than you can shake a stick at. Yes, this is what you should expect from the 25 minutes of mayhem on Bestiale Battito Divino.
Actually, to be fair, it’s not all about the chaos and mayhem. Vicious and nasty Cioran may be, but they also know when to slow the songs down and inject some evil groove or malevolent crawl into the proceedings.
Cioran play their blackened hardcore with a menacing brutality and an intensity of vision. With their underground sound, grim demeanour and sense of malice that they exude, the band are more on the black metal side of the equation than the hardcore one, but there’s still enough elements of hardcore/punk/crust in their sound to justify the epithet.
When all is said and done you’re left feeling satisfied and pleased at what you have just experienced. Bestiale Battito Divino is an enjoyable romp through the filthy blackened waters that Cioran hunt in.
A recommended listen.
