Ilsa – Tutti il Colori del Buio

Ilsa, named after the exploitation movies from the 70’s, first released this nasty album on vinyl with Contagion Releasing who are based in Seattle and recently released it on CD through their own Odium Generis Humani label. ‘Tutti il Colori del Buio’ is the band’s second album and it is amazing.

Sometimes, when you find yourself as a newer fan of a specific band, finding and becoming familiar with their past work…especially the rare shit, can be nearly impossible.
