This is Italy's answer to BRUJERIA, but instead of being a joke, they're the real deal. Or so they claim to be. They include recordings of the local mobsters making deals and of the local criminals. Musically, they're goregrind, but they're not a CARCASS clone in any way. Still, there's not really anything here that strikes me as very original or interesting. BRUJERIA may be a joke, but at least when they're funny, they're very funny. The songs here all sound pretty much the same, and about the best thing I can say is that BALATONIZER are a true grind band. No fucking hardcore vocals or riffs to be found.
