It’s difficult to remain somehow unbiased when the record you’re listening comes up _ minute by minute _ with what you were waiting for, whose form you could perceive but not focus. Let’s put it this way: Cardosanto is a trio (electric guitar, bass and drums) that only needs three minutes to blow away any obviousness encrusted on borderline and extreme rock in the last 15 years. There’s the sonic explosion of Praxis and ruthless hardcore and, all of a sudden, out of the blue, here comes the enigmatic precision of a Fripp-like arpeggio exploring the borders of the crimson king’s territory. A brainteaser, enriched with experimental inserts of pure and mysterious noise/sound: the title’s pneumas
