An impressive exercise in guitar processing and drum glitching, “Kenter” lives in very well-trodden dark and ominous territory but manages to forge its own unique tone nevertheless.- Chain DLK
“Kenter” lies like lead on your ears and with every second it opens up to show you new fine grains and details.- Sonic Seducer
Alessio Santini has in his DNA the traces of the best Justin Broadrick: he manipulates the sounds with fantastic aplomb and obtains always remarkable results.- Rockerilla
Kenter is an electric guitar + acoustic drums (both heavily manipulated), record.
Big, raw, digitally distorted guitars are processed, re-processed, then processed again, leading to massive noise, textured drones, and heavy riffs.
Drums are composed with micro-articulation by custom-made softwares, and often reprocessed via granulation technics, to keep the warmth and feel of a real drum set, but projecting it into humanly-unplayable and electroacoustic-like territories.
Kenter is also a post-song experiment: echoes of choruses and vocals make appearance all along the record.
