TUTV wrote back then: “Although, at times, more reflective than before
(Denial, the surprising, yet brilliant Tanker 2, Pt.2 and the cinematic
quiet/loud closer We Are Nothing) this 4-headed tornado keeps producing an
illegal amount of decibels. They rip your sonic heart out with primal screams,
loudmouthed extravaganza, smoking grooves, and well-oiled jams. This time
with different layers and different moods.”

Key phrase: Turn Up the Volume’s best longplayer of 2018
Key tracks: User Guide / Another Cancelled Mission / 11 / GOD / Bored

IT IT ANITA – DOUR Festival Belgium – 14 July 2019

Belgium’s premier noiseniks IT IT ANITA did what they do best again yesterday at Dour Festival in Belgium: causing a deafening whirlwind of mindboggling noise on repeat, firing up the whole crowd with their immensely passionate electricity while messing up
the euphoric spectators’ minds the way they like it, breaking down the drums and building it up somewhere in the middle of the marquee for an astonishing intermezzo, leaving tons of sweat on the floor and remembering us all that they made one of last year’s albums with their ace LAURENT LP. Hail hail IIAA!

Every picture tells a story…


Psychedelic turmoil


Earsplitting passion


Explosive electricity


Sweaty thunder


Primal screams


Hail hail
