I learned about this band from a friend last summer, starting with Industrial Silence, which I loved. But there is something about this disk that just fascinates me. This is a truly great band with a lead singer who has an outstanding voice, which he varies in many different textures, and an amazing sense of timing. The mesmerising Hands Up I Love You (my favourite) is a case in point. The band also vary their instrumentals. They can wail away with the best of them, but they can also stroke the softest of sounds out of those guitars. This is not cheerful music - it's much more atmospheric - mesmerising. I am doing my best to turn friends onto this band, and when you have heard this disk, you will probably want to do likewise.
Nightly Disease may not have quite as many of Madrugada's seminal tracks as the ground breaking Industrial Silence, but it's still a brilliantly emotive and original piece of work. The deluxe version offers an additional 19 tracks and is well worth the extra. It's impossible to catagorise Madrugada's work other than to say that they somehow manage to skip through the different musical genres without ever losing the central core of their unique musical vision. Buy, listen and enjoy.
This is not music for fun in the sun unless you'r all dressed up in black, as well your mind would be . The music goes well along with the dark and the solitude, but it's yet uplifting! Not so melancolic as their debut album Industrial Silence, but more straigth forward rocklike this time. The vocals is following the paths of Nick Cave and Leonard Cohen, but with its own signature. The lyrics are more poetry like than a mainstream rock and pop songtext. Dive into this on a dark night anf catch the disease!
