"Prima Linea define themselves as an audiovisual and political structure, influenced by the social-revolutionnary actions realized by the avant-garde of the last century, and by the esthetic research of art movements like Futurism or Suprematism. On a musical level, with a deep bass, dark synths, harsch martial vocals, trumpet, symphonic samples and electronic or metal percusions rythms, their sound could be classified between Test Dept and Laibach."
