Tempo Zero (Ita) Barattoli Vuoti; demo (1992)


(A) L’Altro Gregge (The Other Herd) / Non Rinunciare Mai (Never Give Up) / L’Istinto Di Sapere (The Instinct To Know)

(B) Uniforme (Uniform) / Passaggio Obbligato (Mandatory Passage)

A band from Aosta (city of ‘Kina’ and their label Blu Bus) with Romeo Sandri (guitar/vocals), Leo Salvatore (bass/vocals) and Gio(rgio) (drums/vocals). Later Michele Berselli joined on second guitar. They played uptempo melodic hardcore. This was there first demo. (Barattoli Vuoti means Empty Jars.)

My review in Tilt! #7: >>Nice uptempo melodic HCpunk with beautiful intros and angry outbursts. Cool chorusses. Lyrics in Italian. Very good!<<

Above are the lyrics and an additional text about our social situation and personal stuff. Absolutely not fascist, we were always against that kind of people and ideas.

We started in 1991. This first official first demo-tape was (totally DIY) self-recorded in our rehearsal-room.  We also got in touch with ‘Kina’ who asked help to run their label. After a first period influenced by melodic HC, our music changed to a more rhythmic post-core style inspired by the Dischord/DC sound (Tempo Zero self-titled CD). The band toured a lot (mainly Italy, Germany, France). We befriended quite some bands, which led to various collaborations and shared adventures (just to name a few: ‘Shock Treatment’, ‘Eversor’/’The Miles Apart’, ‘Nuvolablu’, ‘Alcatraz’). In 1997 we started our own label (and fanzine) called Enphasys that released our later works. We ended our ‘journey’ in 2002 (after a demo, 2 albums, 2 7″ EPs & 3 split-7″s)…
