3 stars This is typical MB's astonishing noisy-experimental works at his beginnings. However the dark- claustrophobic orchestration is much more accomplished that in his previous efforts (with the exception of the fascinating shocking horror Mectpyo Bakterium)...This is twisted, agonising, painful electronic mayhem within a majestic, transcendant vibe. The moving, buzzing noisy epic droning sequences are covered by grim, creepy, haullinatory harmonies. This is absolutely dark nightmarish drone with fuzzed out energies, deadly, oppressive metallic industrial noises, highly chirurgical frequences. This is so cerebral and chaotic that you really need to focuse your attention on the moving textures to perceive some haunted spectral / fantomatic melodies. Here, the cacophony turns to something really sophisticated, orchestrated and elegiac. Amazing disturbed violence in industrial electronic drones. Not the best MB but a really gorgeous, traumatic, threatening ambience, cinematic stuff! Beginners should start with The plain Truth.
Review by Dobermensch
2 stars 'Endometrio' is an electronic bludgeoning assault on the senses. It is however a somewhat disappointing album from Maurizio Bianchi during his most prolific and best period. There's not much going on in these slabs of industrial noise that will hold your attention.

Huge, queasy grumbling keyboards are affected with an array of delay effects that make you think Norman Bates is having a one man party wearing a bobble hat and blowing a tooter before murdering Janet Leigh in the bathroom in 'Psycho'. Admittedly it's an ominous and thoroughly spooky album, but it unfortunately falls flat due to the simple fact that there isn't much going on between all the electronic noisescapes.

It's all too blunt and one dimensional to have any real impact. It's good enough if you're in the the mood for some blood letting, but quite frankly I'm not. I'm going through a World War One book reading trauma just now and this music just makes me feel sick.

Go for 'Armaghedon' or 'Symphony for a Genocide' if you're new to this artist. These are far better examples of Bianchi's output.
