Overview

Released nearly ten years after its recording, as well as long after the demise of the band itself, this document of Rorschach's chaotic live show is still as vicious today as it was back then. Live in Italy 6-18-92 is 17 tracks of the band's live brutality that encompasses music written throughout their five-year tour of duty together. For those who thought singer Charles Maggio's guttural screams were somehow treated by any effects, his performance on here will destroy any doubts that his angry howls are anything but man made. Leading the band through the 45-minute set (which, for the record, is quite a long show for such a hard playing and emotionally draining act) Maggio's anguished cries garnish the finely honed hardcore metal chops of the rest of the band, who aren't too bad off to begin with. The record certainly doesn't compare to the pure chaos that the show must have been, and the recording quality is a bit shabby at times as it drifts out very briefly on one or two occasions, but the energy is still infectious, and this is a fantastic glimpse at just how wild the band was in their heyday. Rorschach fans will obviously want to get their hands on this disc, as it is most likely the final offering from the long defunct act, but there is something compelling about the ferocious performance that should turn the heads of anyone who understands the strength of an explosive live show.
