Think you have heard all italian HC pearls? We’re not quite done yet – here’s Modena’s STIGMATHE!
There’s absolutely nothing I know of this band other than that STIGMATHE had an unreleased 7″ from ’82 which saw the light of day in 1987 (at least, that’s what the “Kill from the Heart” website tells us).
Totally great Italian HC, with super nice gang-vocals and pounding drums – and yes, of course the high-pitched guitars. The melodic b-side track (“Italia Brucia”, “Italy burns”, if my d.i.y.-italian doesn’t fail me) has a weird swedish feel to it, don’t you think, a nice portion of Asta Kask and two-tonism – Friggin’ amazing!
