Near-exact reproduction of the original Sterile Records release, including hand-stamped labels and inserts just like the 1981 issue. M.B., aka Maurizio Bianchi, has enjoyed a deserved renaissance in recent times as a new generation discovers his charred brand of industrial noise, particularly the artist's formative early 80's period before he disappeared in pursuit of religion. In the ensuing years, many of these early records became prized collector objects, garnering hundreds of dollars -- if they could even be found. Bianchi has since returned to creating music and many of those pricey releases have been re-issued on vinyl except for what's widely considered to be his seminal work from that time, SYMPHONY FOR A GENOCIDE. Weird Forest is proud to rectify this situation.
To the uninitiated, SYMPHONY may sound like so much noise with its unyielding factory-of-death buzzsaw sound making Throbbing Gristle's industrial music almost top-40 by comparison. But buried underneath the unrelenting martial rhythms and analog siren sounds is a great deal of musicality, including synth melodies and basic chord progressions. Bianchi uses all these elements at his disposal to create a gripping audio portrait of the grim subject matter.
