Second strike is deadly!
“The Cuckoo Clocks of Hell” is the bastard son of the tensions and clashes in a band that is mutating and whose leader is not leading it anymore.
The title TCCOH comes from the movie “Last House On The Left” and it’s meant to pay respect to the spirit of the underground and the people who inhabit it.
End of 2000, Carlo had to move to another city and start a new job, which meant that he could not devote to Resurrecturis as much time as he used to. This brought a loss of focus, a drastic reduction in the band’s activities and the explosion of the latent tensions within the line up. The writing process of the new songs proved to be difficult and litigious. And by the end of the recording session (2003) it took more than six months to find the motivations to mix the album and shop it around.
The self released version of the album caught the interest of Mondongo Canibale records from Spain, a label run by members of Haemorrhage and Greenfly. The album was re-released in 2004 and spread around by the label and the band.
For sure this album is the most violent release by Resurrecturis ever. Songs like “The Last Sun” and “The Hate” will blow you away with their blistering intensity and downtuned guitar assault. The trademark Resurrecturis variety is well represented by episodes like “Sleeping Reason”, “InArt’s Death” or “Inversion-Perversion”, that explore territories like stoner rock or noise.
