UMUR
Giallo / Antefatto is a compilation release by American goregrind/ death metal act Impetigo. The album was released in 2000 by Half-Life Records. The first 9 tracks are taken from the 1989 Giallo demo while the last 3 tracks are taken from the 1991 Antefatto split EP with Blood. Both are rare releases with only limited availability, so this compilation is an opportunity to check out some of the early releases by one of the instigators of the goregrind genre.

With titles like Bitch Death Teenage Mucous Monster From Hell, The Revenge of the Scabby Man, Dear Uncle Creepy and Venereal Warts it´s probably not hard to tell that we´re dealing with one of the more kitchy/ B-Horror Movie influenced goregrind acts out there. The difference between Impetigo and the thousands of similar acts that have followed, is first and foremost that Impetigo were one of the first acts to play the style. The quality of the 9 tracks from the Giallo demo are a bit below average for the genre both when it comes to musicianship, production and songwriting. I find some of the tracks interesting but not really great. The 3 tracks from the Antefatto split EP are hard for me to listen to though. Bad murky sound quality, noise and more noise. I like my goregrind raw and filthy, but this is far from quality material.

I can´t say this compilation does much for me personally and I would only recommend it to fans of raw, filthy, underproduced goregrind with nasty kitchy lyrics. A 2 star rating is warranted.
