Epica Etica Etnica Pathos

Epica Etica Etnica Pathos (Epic, Ethics, Ethnic, Pathos) is the last studio album released by the Italian punk rock band CCCP Fedeli alla linea in 1990.

It sounds completely different from their previous works, and could be considered as the “real” first album by C.S.I..

The short, fast, hard music, with stripped-down instrumentation and punk rock melodies were substituted by a more melancholic and declamatory vein.

The album sessions made use of original, and unique techniques for recording instruments and sound effects in rock music. It was directly played, and recorded in a farmhouse in the Romagna countryside. The use of those techniques, the surrounding ambient, the use of the natural echo made out a really soft sound instead of the clean and sometimes empty uniformity of a usual studio recording.

CCCP reached their zenith with this album, with songs like the complex suites "MACISTE contro TUTTI", or "Aghia Sophia", "Depressione Caspica" and "Annarella".

On 2004, "Amandoti" was covered by Gianna Nannini. "Annarella" was covered by La Crus in their album Crocevia.
