“Psychedelia and industrial in a sacred and profane ritual” is the sulphurous announcement with which Cigno, alias Diego Cignitti, blues guitarist and teacher at the Saint Louis College of Music, presents his latest album “Nada! Nada! Nada!”.
A concert which, in the footsteps of Bauhaus, Nine Inch Nails and our Giovanni Lindo Ferretti, promises to be built between psychedelic atmospheres and post punk atmospheres marked by sharp riffs and industrial rhythms because the artist, after his debut with "Morte e Pianto ritual” which evoked the ethno-anthropological studies of Ernesto De Martino, with “Nada! Nada! Na-da!” intends to move his path between experimentation and rejection of the traditional canons of pop music, avoiding any commonly understood form of song.
An incendiary message where trip rock, ethnic impulses and mystical moments coexist amplified by hypnotic percussion loops, industrial suites full of distortions.
As in the previous work, the new album presents itself with an intrinsically political concept structure because, while it shuns the melodic compromises of the pop song, it presents itself with visionary lyrics in which the contemporaneity between criticism of the socio-economic dimension of the West and escapes through verses is represented whispered or recited.
