3 stars It's better to be advertised, Maurizio Bianchi's first essays define a musical world made of industrial experiments & artefacts, recycled noises and aggressive electronic variations. This is very far from his late and much more convincing efforts in meditative, introspective atmospheric (almost "ambient") electronic textures. "Symphony For A Genocide" is a concept album around the horror of Nazis "concentration" camps. No emotion here, just a musical universe full of terrific, auto-destroyed, extreme, atonal, pulverizing sounds. Contrary to most of critics I don't recognize this album as one among the best Bianchi's . "Symphony For A genocide" is very hard to approach, to digest and remains very cryptical. I prefer Bianchi in his extremely touching inspired "looped" melodies played with sensitivity ("AMB Iehn Tale", "M. I. Nheem Alysm"...). I personally think that an album as "The Testamentary Corridor" (Staalplat, 2006) would be a better evocation & testimony for a genocide.
