Quando si è contattati da un gruppo per dare un parere - senza impegno - sul loro materiale registrato in un album che ancora deve prendere forma, almeno a livello di packing, è sempre un piacere; vuol dire che si sta seminando bene.
Nel caso dei There Will Be Blood il piacere sboccia in pura goduria appena si apre il foglio contenitore delle loro imprese musicali. Capisco subito che si ha che fare con un terzetto che ha stile “this is the story of a man. A man who used to have everything. An house, a family, a life, a soul. And he lost it all. He made a choice, but he chose wrong. And trying to make up for his faults, he condemned himself. Now he wanders alone, along a dark road that goes nowhere. Wherever he goes. There will be blood” in poche righe si svela tutta l'essenza disincantata, grezza, ipnotica delle dieci tracce qui racchiuse; Wherever you go.
I There Will Be Blood vengono dalla provincia lombarda e come nel caso dei the Kaams bastano poche note per capire che le loro radici sono molto più lontane; qui aride come il gusto che certi superalcolici lasciano sul palato; deserte come certe camere quando si è deputati a far si che ci rimettano sempre gli stessi. Ma questa è una questione calda come il suono che nasce dal Delta del Missisipi; ma distorta come la visione di una classe dirigente che sa abilmente distogliere l'opinione pubblica dalla consapevolezza di chi fa solo i propri interessi.
I There Will Be Blood sono un trio comprende una batteria che non smette mai di scaricare la sua rabbia sui piatti, se non in alcune ballate contorte come The Story of a Woman who Kisses only Once e Black Rain. Una slide guitar a ricordarci sempre come il blues e le sue influenze siano cicatrici che ti sfregiano dentro... non si digeriscono cosí facilmente e con Circus of Truth sembra che di sangue ne sia sgorgato parecchio prima che certe ferite si rimargino. Infine c'è un'altra chitarra che sporca e distorce il tutto... dando spesso una chiave psichedelica che mi ricorda molto le Magic Potion delle menti aperte. Nel globale ne esce un suono valido, originale, sorprendente, vissuto; a testimoniarlo basta ascoltare Stomp or Fall (solo i sordi non muoveranno le chiappe), Death Letter (ricordare di fare testamento ai deboli di cuore), The Faith (in Bob Log III we trust), River Flowing (i Led Zeppelin giocano a nascondino dentro un riff primordiale e malsano).
I There Will Be Blood con Wherever you go mi hanno fatto male, mi hanno dilaniato... un disco maturo che lascia il segno squarciandoti l'udito... con la speranza di non morire dissanguati... se cosí fosse, almeno una volta in terra italica, spargere sangue sarebbe per una giusta causa.

When a band gets in touch with you asking for your own opinion - with no obligation - on their recordings for an album that has yet to take form, at least at the level of packing, it is always a pleasure, it means you're doing something good.
In the case of There Will Be Blood, it's pure pleasure, since the very first moment you open the CD sleeve. I understand immediately that you are dealing with a trio that has style "this is the story of a man. A man who used to have everything. An house, a family, a life, a soul. And he lost it all. He made a choice, but he chose wrong. And trying to make up for his faults, he condemned himself. Now he wanders alone, along a dark road that goes nowhere. Wherever he goes. There will be blood" unfolds in a few lines the essence disenchanted, raw, hypnotic of the ten tracks here enclosed; Wherever you go.
There Will Be Blood are from the province of Lombardy, Italy, and as in the case of the Kaams, a few notes are enough to understand that their roots come from far, like that dry taste that some liquor leave on the palate, as well as those empty rooms ensured only to its members. But this is a hot issue like the sound that comes from the Mississippi Delta, but as a distorted vision of a ruling class that knows how to deftly deflect the public from knowing who is doing their own interests.
There Will Be Blood is a trio that features a drum that never miss to release its anger on cymbals, if not in some twisted ballads such as The Story of a Woman who Kisses only Once and Black Rain. A slide guitar to remind us just like the blues and its influences are scars that will scratch you from the inside ... not so easily digested and Circus of Truth seems that a lot of blood will be poured out before some wounds heal. Finally there is another dirty guitar and distorts everything ... often in a psychedelic key that reminds me a lot of  the Magic Potion of the open minds. I must say this sound comes out valid, original, surprising, passionated, just isten to Stomp or Fall (only the deaf would not move the ass here), Death Letter (remember to make a will - that's for the faint of heart), The Faith (in Bob Log III we trust) River Flowing (Led Zeppelin play hide and seek in a primal and unhealthy riff).
There Will Be Blood, with Wherever you go, kicked me hard, I felt torn... a mature disc, able to break your ears... hoping not to bleed to death ... if so, at least for once in our country, there would be blood for a good cause.
