Now streaming: Italy's INFECTION CODE "Dissenso"

Our latest addition to the records being streamed at is INFECTION CODE.
The nihilist industrial noise mongers quartet formed around the end of the 90's in Alessandria and has just released, on March the 2nd, 2018,  their new 8-track album  "Dissenso" through Argonauta records.
The band mixes some dusturbing, nerve-wrecking, noise industrial metal with a hardcore edge to it and because of the use of the Italian language, vocal-wise, they kind of remind me of Marlene Kuntz, early Disciplinatha, RSU, and many Italian hardcore punk bands (the list would be too long and definitely boring).

Stream HERE the full record "Dissenso"
