Una Bestia Incontrolable - 10-11-12

There is a section in Berberian Sound Studio, one of my favourite movies of the year, where Toby Jones' character, a mild-mannered garden-shed sound-engineer from 70s England who ends up scoring a gorily ridiculous nunsploitation giallo movie, gets so caught up in the air of violence and pulpy satanic malevolence that his disintegrating psyche rebels and snaps back to the pastoral soundscapes hedgerows that he made his name documenting. Una Bestia Incontrolable, featuring members of Glam and Destino Final, close their first release with, De Dia, an unsettling drone of distant industrial-clunk overlaid with the sweet witterings of birdsong, as if these two aspects, the citystink and the field innocence were stumbling together, realities intercutting, spiralling into the same psychic space, as in the final moments a storm seems rumble into the frame. Before that cut-off apocalypse, 10-11-12 is a fierce ambitious noise-rock inflected hardcore rumble, like Deskonocidos scrapping with The Men's tougher stuff, or Fucked Up without any of uplifting grandeur. Starting with another instrument rumble in La Cova, Una Bestia Incontrolable make skid around in a tiz of furious scummy mid-tempo nastiness, a gritty meaty glut of noise-rub and skullcrack drums, frothing with gunk and setting the stage for the scary emptiness of the closer.
