Legendary Italian grindcore outfit CRIPPLE BASTARDS, currently celebrating their thirtieth anniversary in 2018, have completed an official video for their latest single, “Passi Nel Vuoto,” which sees its premiere this week through Cvlt Nation. The song is pulled from the band’s decimating seventh LP, La Fine Cresce Da Dentro, which will see release in November through Relapse Records.
Recorded at the legendary Fredman Studios in Gothenburg, Sweden with producer Fredrik Nordström (At The Gates, Dark Tranquillity), La Fine Cresce Da Dentro – translated to “The End Is Growing From Within” – delivers eighteen tracks of inconceivable speed and brutality even surpassing CRIPPLE BASTARDS’ intense prior releases. Now in their third decade of delivering their brutalizing anthems to the masses, the album proves that this act shows no signs of slowing down and continues to destroy unsuspecting eardrums with hate-filled, grind-punk chaos.
CRIPPLE BASTARDS vocalist Giulio The Bastard offers, “The song ’Passi Nel Vuoto’ (translated to ‘Steps Into The Void’) is a parallel between the annihilation of the individual lost in the most obtuse massification, induced to waste and sedated in his emotions, and the value of life increasingly low – reduced to being a cog in the consumer machine. The graphics of our new album La Fine Cresce Da Dentro are all unreleased pictures taken from the vaults of a crime magazine that existed from the 1950s through the ‘90s, accessed from the archives of the criminal police based in Milano, Italy. In making this video we have chosen to alternate similar photos with scenarios of mass stratification and blind conformism. As the lyrics say, ‘What’s left is desolation / but it doesn’t make sense to realize it / it’s the weight of survival: how much you spend / how much you can cost.’”
