Cicatriz Black
Style: Aggressive Thrash Metal
Release date: April 9th 2007

Italian cult band Schizo is back... and you better believe me… they are kicking and screaming their way through their comeback album “Cicatriz Black".


Schizo was formed back in 1984 with inspiration coming from acts like; Venom, Sodom, Discharge, and Hellhammer. They recorded their first album “Main Frame Collapse” in 1988 and it was released the year after in 1989.


After a few releases problems occurred and the nineties left Schizo in the dust. But now they are back… kicking and screaming…. my god, they are kicking and screaming.


“Cicatriz Black” is fast, angry, psychotic and pure energy. The music is aggressive Thrash and bands like Discharge, Destruction, Tankard, and Dead Kennedys comes to mind when I listen to this splendid CD.


Well, if you’re feeling down, angry and frustrated, do not hesitate to throw this album in your CD-player and feel the guitars break your spine… and what about the drummer? He is kicking the living shit out of his drums, believe me! And… the vocalist?? Damn he sounds fucking angry… damn… he is shouting and screaming almost non-stop.


You feel the anger rise inside your body and all of your frustrations are about to come out. You start to bang your ugly head and after a few minutes your ears starts bleeding…your neck hurts like hell, but you don’t care at all… you just want more of this angry Thrash Metal release. When the CD is done, you feel better… relaxed… most of your frustrations are gone and you can cope with life again.


“Cicatriz Black” comes with 10 tracks and a good production and it’s the fucking right album to put on when you’re feeling down and miserable.


Try it if you dare.
