“Yes, more please,” are the thoughts that come to mind in hearing Roulette, the punchy and crunchy opener to Tragol de Rova. Like much of the record, this track – its dark mood and background horror-film wailing – is the music playing in your worst nightmares: in the best way possible. This release from Italian outfit Lucertulas has the band moving from creepy and cackling post-hardcore, best shown through the Evil Dead squealing at the end of On Rough Sea, to distortion-heavy ambient rock on instrumental track six. And while this number may lose listeners thirsting for the bloodlust displayed in preceding tracks – it clocks in at over seven minutes and provides a brief glint of hope before the final massacre – seven brings the maths with a pulsing rhythm reminiscent of a heavier Shipping News. Thus leading into closing track Ops!, its changing time signatures seemingly lifted from the Shellac playbook. Yes, more please.
