Wednesday, January 29 2014, Carlo appeared as guest on Enrico’s radioshow, Tuna Tonite.

The title chosen for this episode of the show was “Prima della Grammatica del Caos” (Before the Grammar of Chaos). “My intention was to dig out some songs from my archive/memories and go back to the time when the handbook of how to create extreme metal songs had yet to be created”- says Carlo –  “Being an old timer in the underground metal scene, I remember very well how it was in the eighties. There was a limited number of bands that were trying to create something more aggressive, but most of them were inexperienced, inadequately equipped, surrounded by indifference (or hatred). Still they went on in the pursit of their vision. Some failing miserably, some achieving considerable artistic results.  For sure you had to have a lot of guts to record a song like “Kill Your Mother” (Hellhouse) back in 1985. Today extreme metal bands are striving to be successful – back then they would have been happy not to be laughed at… Another thing I love from these old recordings is that they sound really different. Back then you really had to experiment and find your way – so results varied a lot.”
