Diehard edition on ultra-clear vinyl limited to 150 copies.
The most exhaustive and complete DECLINO discography release ever made! Formed in 1982 in Torino (also hometown of Negazione, Kollettivo, Blue Vomit, Nerorgasmo and many more), DECLINO stands as one of the most important names in the legendary first wave of Italian Hardcore, or call it "the furious years" or specifically for Torino, the "wild bunch". They were on the maps in the early MRR reports about Italy's Punk/HC scene and also appeared in the fundamental "P.E.A.C.E." 2xLP compilation on R Radical Records! Their style was a highly energetic clash of speed, rage and creative song-writing. The band featured members that also played in cult acts such as Negazione, Indigesti, 5° Braccio etc and they were definitely among the first in their area to develop a mature style that was leaning more towards the intensity of total Hardcore than on Punk's rawness. This anthology includes all their existing studio recordings, consisting of: the debut 7" (1983), "Mucchio selvaggio" split tape/LP with Negazione (1984), 3 unreleased tracks (1984), "Eresia" 12" (1985) and a complete soundboard live recording (Denmark, 1985) never released before in its entirety... for a total of 39 songs! Housed in a deluxe gatefold sleeve with a 11"x11" booklet glued on the inner panel, collecting a huge selection of photos, flyers, artworks and all the lyrics. And included in this first pressing you'll also find a poster with the discarded art for "Eresia" 12" that has never been published to date!! Compared to the previous collective works, "Terra bruciata" is the definitive and most complete one, each session/recording included is totally complete! If you're a maniac of rapid, straightforward Italian Hardcore and '80s HC in general, this is an absolute must!
