Review Summary: Il Destino! Di Un Umbrello!

4 of 4 thought this review was well written

Italian five-piece La Quiete released their seminal violence album in 2004. Originally released as a 10" and CD on React With Protest and Heroine records respectively, however the album is more widely available in it's later 12" Gasping For Breath pressing.

La Fine Non รจ La Fine is opened with a crescendo of feedback, followed by a blast of gang screams and chaotic, driven guitar work. Something that must be noted in the band's work is that they play with minimal distortion on their guitars, revealing how talented they are and how coherently their songs are written, regardless of the seeming limitations of their genre. The following track, Metempsicosi Del Fine Ultimo, has an extended quiet period further emphasising the impending faster sections and showing us that La Quiete are more capable than just producing noise. Even as the band descend into chaos, they still maintain a tightness to their sound, never faltering or sloppy. This is a vast departure from the archetypal "chaos" sound similar bands, such as Ampere from the U.S, employ.

La Fine opens in breakneck speed and gives you a clear insight into what to expect in the album. If you do not like the opening track, take the needle off. However, the album is interspersed with more relaxed sections, which is the true beauty of La Quiete's work; the juxtaposition they create between the loud and soft. The album ends on the latter, giving a sense of closure after the aural assault you have just been subjected to.

Even if you cannot understand a single word they say, you can understand that this is what screamo should sound like. La Fine is essentially a work of passion. This is one of the classic chaotic screamo/violence releases of all-time. Sadly many won't hear it in it's intended capacity, on vinyl, due to the often mp3-happy attitude of many of the younger set. No matter what format you get it on, it is essential for anyone who enjoys emo/screamo/violence/good music.

Sounds slightly interesting, but this should be a "soundoff" because it's much too short to be a review... especially if you're trying to prove a "5"... they're pretty big on "5's" being written as if you're trying to prove the existance of god to an atheist ;)This Message Edited On 09.17.07

no way dude! funeral diner are heaps more instrumental in their arrangements. la quiete are pretty much the forefathers of the euro skram scene.

Awesome album, my favourite song is the last one.

I've looked for this so many times online and can't find anywhere to buy it. I'm seeing them in about a month though so hopefully I can get it then.

Yeah, I should be going to both Brisbane shows. The lineup of the first one is probably the best lineup of any show this year. I guess I'll just wait and buy merch at the shows.

Do you listen to any Australian "skramz"?

This is a really great album. They are the best of euro scramzzz. Followed by Amanda Woodward.


Sed Non Saitia > Daitro > La Quiete

imo. Haven't heard Amanda Woodward though.

*My Disco. The only skramy stuff they released was a three-track called "Collapse Of An Erratic Lung".

A fairly updated list of Australian skram bands, with links to their myspaces, can be found here;

My top 3 would be Eucalypt, James Dean & Love Like... Electrocution.

Eucalypt, Majorca, Quiet Steps, To The North (my favourite Australian band at present), Quebec, Orlac's Hande, Love Like...Electrocution, Ryu vs Ken

Check out the Yellow Ghost record label.

It's my brother's formal that night, but I think I'll probably just leave and get there as soon as I can. The lineup is incredible; Quiet Steps, Shiver Like Timber, To The North and Let's Not But Say We Did are probably my favourite bands from here and then Eucalypt, Majorca and These Hands...
