2014 - Earlier this year two multifaceted artists like MATATUS & GRASSA DATO have joined forces to create a unique album. Each of them has created a long track showing us their dark vision, destructive and chaotic from the underworld materials, opening a door into the unknown, the hidden, voices and industrial sounds that reach us from the other side of the door, under electronic dialogue analog / digital. Dense soundscapes, experimental intense enveloping, penetrating and disturbing sounds take us into a strange world.
