Recensione. Volvodrivers: Cui prodest?

 

Artista/Gruppo: Volvodrivers
Titolo: Cui prodest?
Etichetta: Angel’s Wings Label/Volvodrivers
Formato: CD
Anno di pubblicazione: 2017
web: http://www.facebook.com/Volvodrivers
L’essenza del concetto di power-trio sintetizzata in dodici tracce cantate in italiano (peccato che i testi non siano riportati nel booklet, le liriche perfettamente incastrate nel contesto sonoro rappresentano un valore aggiunto di “Cui prodest?”), una tumultuante cavalcata ottimamente padroneggiata da musicisti affiatati e valorizzata da una produzione eccellente, segno ulteriore che la scena “alternativa “ italiana (banale categorizzazione che trascende stili e generi) è definitivamente maturata. I Volvodrivers esprimono rabbia e volontà, non mostrando falsi pudori quando ricorrono a formule già sperimentate (“Cui prodest?” è un condensato del grunge più oscuro e sofferto degli Alice In Chains e del power/hard dei Monster Magnet “ripuliti” dai deliri psichedelici, ché i Volvodrivers sono molto più concreti, inglobando inoltre scorie noise ed elementi di scuola stoner), ma lo spessore compositivo e la personalità messi in campo sono tali da rendere ogni paragone, anche il più impegnativo, alla stregua di un mero esercizio di citazioni. Anche quando il ritmo cala (“Cuore nero”) il terzetto mantiene alta la tensione espressiva, superando un ostacolo sovente esiziale per i complessi italiani: una melodia aliena ed alienante che viene sintetizzata mirabilmente dal motto “suoni apocalittici dal profondo nord-est” che si legge sulla loro pagina FB. Attivi dal 2004 e con all’attivo un omonimo esordio datato 2014 segnano con “Cui prodest?” un deciso passo verso un riconoscimento che meritano appieno a dispetto della provenienza “periferica” che troppe volte non premia il reale valore di un gruppo e della sua opera…
