Non Voglio Morire


Away from the flock

Self biographical and articulated to the extreme, 2009’s “Non Voglio Morire” (I Don’t Want To Die) is a love it or hate it album. Centered around the relationship of Carlo with metal music and art in general, this collection of songs left many wondering how it was possible that there was a single band behind such varied output…

The making of “Non Voglio Morire” was sparse to say the least: the song writing, the recording sessions, everything took ages to complete. Geographical distance between band members and also the recording studio added further dilution to the process and the project went very close to being aborted altogheter when it became evident that the engineer/producer that we had initially chosen for the project was totally lost in front of the complexity of our musical soundscape. We ultimately got ahold of the masters and took them to Paolo Ojetti (Infernal Poetry/Potemkin Studio) who was able to tame the beast and give us something that UK label Casket Records found suitable to release.

The musical variety is pretty incredible and even too extreme for many. Episodes of sheer fury like “The Origin” and “Fuck Face” merge with the dark industrial metal of “The Artist” and thrash ballads like “Calling Our Names” or indie-pop numbers like “In Retrospective”. All in all an album that is dense and complex and requires repeated listens to get the overall picture.

Discipline, restraint and motivation
If I follow my inspiration
There’s a chance that I get to a place that is unknown
To a time, to a truth that is pure”

Album Reviews

Resurrecturis has long been considered one of the founding fathers of the Italian death metal scene. Founded in 1990, Carlo Strappa is the only remaining original member. Although their sound is heavily influenced by death/thrash metal they do like to vary their sound and challenge themselves to write songs that are very different from one another.
Resurrecturis has done a great job of incorporating a mix of metal genres on their album "Non Voglio Morire". You will find death metal, melodic death metal, industrial sounds, slow harmonious sounds, clean lyrics, fast tempos, slow tempos, and growling vocals. Truly this album will not bore you and surely has something for everyone. Carlo Strappa's varied musical ability and taste is appreciated and well represented here.
One of the heaviest and favorites off the album comes from the song "Fuck Face" where Janos Murri cleverly growls and screams the many ways to say "Fuck Face". While, the softer, more melodic and harmonious sound comes from the last track entitled "In Retrospective". Which, as the name implies, is an introspective look at one's life accompanied by beautiful melodic guitar and piano.
This is a great album for all metal fans. And best of all the entire album is available for download free from their website: The commercial version of "Non Voglio Morire" includes a bonus DVD. Also, the cover artwork is very cool, so there definitely are many reasons to buy the album.
