[…] Instinto, a quintet from Barcelona whose independently released self-titled debut screams vengeance all over the fucking place and declares a full-on war against the establishment with its merciless and disfiguring brand of crust/d-beat assault. This album literally howls with rage and is nothing short of a sonic riot in its own form. The songs are towering anthems of sour and rage, the production is spotless and the guitar tone is absolutely huge and as filthy as the smog and smoke infested skies of a dystopic slum turned upside down by raging riots. Think of Tragedy and From Ashes Rise and their beefy tones and apocalyptic moods, but with a stronger sense of urgency and a more savage delivery. There is also a nitid Behind Enemy Lines sonic silhouette as a backdrop in this work, which reinforces the pure pedigree this band beholds. That’s where Instinto stands, and their debut is packed to the fucking roof with heaviness and anger to the point of collapse, and the songs contained herein pave the way to a downright musical war zone, one blast of obliterating rage after another. The album has been out for a while and oh my, what a mistake it was to overlook it. Hit the play button on the player above and let this baby literally tear through your skull like a riot!
