L’Ira Del Baccano – Terra 42

L’Ira Del Baccano – Terra 42
Subsound records – 2014
Rock, Space, Psych, Stoner, Doom, Instrumental
Rated: ****

Their first and only full-sized release to date is a live recorded album from 2008 called Si Non Sedes Is…Live. This time around however the four crazy Italians that make up L’Ira Del Baccano decided to dive head first into a studio and explore their limits there. And one the crackling release Terra 42; there are no limits. This is space rock extravaganza with overtones of psychedelic meanderings, stoner thunderings some tasty doomy proddings. And all of it is done with extreme instrumental prejudice. These cats know what they are doing, and they are doing it right. The first three part track is based on The Infinite Improbability Drive from The Hitchhikers Guide To The Galaxy. And the name could not have been chosen better. It is jam-packed with the most improbable of moves and switches that follow the most logical paths and reasonable routes; all the while having you on the edge of your seat. And after those first impressive thirty-two minutes as you want to say goodbye and thank them for all the fish; you are hit with another two-part whirlwind called Sussurri…Nel Bosco di Diana and another fiery explosive song named Volcano X 13. So you are sure to be enormously entertained, especially if you dare to take the dive with them and listen to the entire record with only sips of cheap port for a miniature refuge, leaving your mind on the end of its tether and almost grasping the knowledge that these guys know where the number 42 stands for…
