The cassette version of this release was the first Hardcore tape I got back in June 1993. I managed to get the CD version lately.

Martello (Italian for “hammer”) is all produced by Severo Lombardoni, responsible also for having produced tons and tons of tracks for Discomagic compilations under a myriad of aliases. What’s good on this release is that each title is amazingly different from each other. On any track there’s not a hint of resemblance with any other track as each title has a totally different sound and even kick-drum. There is some computer editing and mixing between each track which blends all tracks together rather than cutting them abrubtly.

What sucks with this compilation is that like a lot of other releases by Discomagic it’s too short – at 42 minutes all tracks could have been longer. Tracks 8 and 16 are faded too early, which, as per Discomagic norm, corresponds to the end of the cassette sides.

Far from a must-hear release, but it's one of those obscure Discomagic releases which are worth a listen by any old-school gabber if there's the chance ;)
