Psycho-Path Desinvoltura

The state of music in Eastern Europe was long seen as ill-fated up until only a number of years back when small, but strong, scenes started to form. These circles have led to the emergence of some amazing talent and Psycho-Path is an example of that. This is a sexy, adventurous album that wanders into some interesting territory. At times it can be shocking, like on the slow and sultry "Weapon of Opportunity,” which leaves you feeling strangled. The band has no hesitation dipping into the heavier side of music, either, but the songs still remain melodic, like "Lynch (the) Girl.” Having formed in 1994, this album shows how capable and well-structured Psycho-Path have become in those ten years. And though they all have varying influences — punk, noise and metal — they have created a strong, fluid sound that can be accessed by fans of many different genres. Throw in some grit and this is Eastern Europe’s answer to New York City’s underground rock scene. (Exile on Mainstream)
