Raein - Il N'y A Pas D'Orchestre (2003)



Phenomenal Italian hardcore! Raein had some members that went on to be in La Quiete, the other phenomenal Italian hardcore band, and I would love to know who from Raein is in La Quiete, but I am guessing the singer and possibly the guitarist. I find it hard to really distinguish a total difference between the two other than Raein seems to be really good at welding together extremely emotional polar opposites while La Quiet seems to be really good at emotionally polarizing extreme welds....

...?....

yeah, I dont think that made any sense whatsoever. But this does.

If you like La Quiete, and I mean really like them like I do, which is kind of gross and I'll spare you the details of what I do in my personal time with my La Quiete records, then you will freaking fall head over heels for Raein.

They are so cathartic without being cheesy or predictable. They are so emotive it fills me up with sparking energy. They are so fast that I have to listen to each song three times to fully appreciate every little change and subtle dynamic they squeeze in their hands. To me, theirs is a road map of every good thing to happen in hardcore since 1980.

Their split releases, with Funeral Diner, Daitro, Lhasa and Phoenix Bodies are all amazing and I strongly urge to find what you can of theirs, or wait until one of us posts up some more mind melting Italian hardcore...

and please pray for La Quiete to record another album. I am going to have to take up a heavy drug addiction if I cant have anymore La Quiete

Great post!!! I cannot wait to check this :)

La Quiete is really amazing! Could you re-up their 7s you posted in the past? The links are dead for some time...

And thanks for the split with Phoenix Bodies you sent me. I've managed to find their full-length, good stuff!

Here's the This is Your Life Comp released on Ape Must Not Kill Ape Records. It's got songs by La Quiete and Raein and a bunch of other great emo bands. http://www.megaupload.com/?d=PG7UAPLW

Also, I think that La Q and Raein share a drummer but I'm not positive. When I saw La Q over the summer they covered Tigersuit. It was so cool.

From what I've heard, one of the Raein guys is in Neil on Impression. Their "Perfect Tango" LP is phenomenal! The sound is totally different, of course (piano and violin driven), but it still kicks ass.

I forgot to add that Raein totally blowed me away with the first listening :)

Now I understand better blend's love of La Quiete. To this time I've thought that the best thing from Italy is pizza ;)

Blogger kissmysoundsystem said...

Thanks for Anna Karina, pap! I think I'm starting to like their first album :)

Settlefish streaming from their website sounds really nice. Do you have anything by them?

And I'm looking forward for more Raein, blend :)

3:33 PM  
Blogger papstar said...

If blend doesn't have time to up more Raein..lemme know. I have a lot of that stuff here at work.

3:36 PM  
Blogger blend77 said...

i dont have anymore raein at work, so feel free to post away. i do have almost everything of theirs at home though...

My favorite Raein is Parte 1 and Parte 2 from the Lhasa / Daitro 3-way split.... which i believe may be the same two songs from the Doden Marscher whatever Vast 7"

3:48 PM  
Blogger papstar said...

ya..that 3 way split is awesome. I think I posted that last week somewhere..maybe here.

3:50 PM

Thanks a lot, pap!!! It's never too late to learn, especially if we talk about great music :)

And last times I've learned a lot with your help! Thanks!

Blogger papstar said...

no problem at all

I think that is everything by them..except maybe a few comp tracks.

11:33 AM  
Blogger blend77 said...

what does Small Brown Bike sound like?

11:40 AM  
Blogger papstar said...

kinda hard to explain...maybe a good balance between melodic and hardcore.
screamy vocals.
braidish? along those lines I guess. A lot of emotion.
