LOIA are Andrea, Camilla, and Stefano, and they come from Florence, Italy. LOIA will fuck you up. We’ve already been assaulted by this band’s vicious music in the past, and now these Italian hardcore sociopaths are back with a brand new album of raging, blacked-out hardcore that will fucking destroy your life. “Nodo alla Gola” in Italian means “knot in your throat,” when your nerves are so tense and your angst is so uncontrollable that you can’t even swallow, you can’t even breathe, and your fucking skull just feels like it just can’t withstand the exploding emotions happening inside your head. This is the music of LOIA – an onslaught of blind, rabid rage made of blackened hardcore punk and crust that hits you like a fucking swarm of thorns, crashing through your eye sockets and passing through your skull with the brute force of a storm of bullets. Splintering shards of mauling powerviolence, echoing waves of Void and Siege-worshiping hardcore, crude and barbaric grindcore infested with black metal that separates flesh from bone with millisecond-long excavations of rage straight into the listener’s flesh. This is LOIA – uncontrolled hatred, unadulterated bitterness, and suffocating chaos that will rip your life to pieces.
We’re honored and stoked to bring you this exclusive stream today, as we feel this band’s pain. We feel their struggle, we feel their rage, and how fucking real and strangling it is. This is not only something for those who love punk, metal and aggressive music in general, but this is one of those rare releases nowadays in which you can hear REAL and RAW emotions coming at you like a scathing upheaval of every dying and suffering soul in the world right now. Pre-order digital and physical formats of Nodo Alla Gola straight from the band’s Bandcamp page – release date is April 1 2016.
