Arte Disfuncional - A History of Violence Sequence
Rhythmic Noise Hailing from Argentina breathes newcomer Arte Disfuncional. The project delivers rhythmic noise, and, well, it really isn't all too great in my opinion. It's hard to listen to, not in the fact that it delivers too much noise or even too little, but it just delivers an annoying mess to my ears. The high pitched sounds that resonate within practically each track serves to destroy the human ear and fuck your brains out, except, honestly, this isn't something you want penetrating your skull.

I mean, even when the going gets good, such as in Part of Apathy, we're given a pretty good beat for the most part. However, the thing that I just cannot get by is the annoyingly high pitched line that goes all throughout the song. It ruins it for me. It sounds like someone's trying to communicate with bats through annoyingly loud ultrasonic technology.

However, this isn't to say that everything's all morbid and what-not on the album. The City That Captured The Sun, a bonus track on the album, did an exceptional job showing off what the artist can do on a good day. Instead of making us want to tear off our ears, we can appreciate the solid rhythm and pulse pounding bass that rocks our sound system. It sounds fairly good. The same can be said for Six Feet Under, a fairly fast paced and pretty awesome track.

While I have no doubts that this project can commit good deeds, and even if there are two decent tracks on the album, I still can't say that the album is good. In fact, I would say that most of it is not able to be listened to unless you require a headache to make it through the day. I do look forward to their next release, however, as I am the type of person who believes in musical redemption.

I've been writing for Brutal Resonance since November of 2012 and now serve as the editor-in-chief. I love the dark electronic underground and usually have too much to listen to at once but I love it. I am also an editor at Aggressive Deprivation, a digital/physical magazine since March of 2016. I support the scene as much as I can from my humble laptop.
