Death Wishlist – You Are Next

The record is a raucous fusion of ’77 punk-rock and high-octane rock ‘n roll, encapsulating the raw essence of their unapologetic individuality.

Formed at the dawn of 2023 in Viareggio (Tuscany), Death Wishlist emerged from the fervent passions of its members for punk-rock and the exhilaration of live gigs. Led by Cosimo Crott on vocals (ex Tornado / Turtleback), accompanied by Jacopo Giannetti on guitar (ex Peawees / Creepmouse), Leonardo Tomei on bass (ex Tornado / Id3alspleen), and Andrea Marchetti and Gianfilippo Mei on guitars and drums respectively, the band gears up to unleash their sonic onslaught upon the world.

Death Wishlist – You Are Next

Inspired by the rebellious spirit of bands like Backyard Babies, Hellacopters, and Sex Pistols, Death Wishlist’s lyrical narratives traverse personal anecdotes, societal critiques, and existential musings. “Lyrics deal with my personal experiences with people, with attacks to politicians and religion seen as psychosis,” recounts Cosimo.

Reflecting on the erratic times, Cosimo says, “The name Death Wishlist means ‘the list of the people I’d like to see dead,’ an idea born during the Covid-19 curfew.” Amidst it, this idea emerged as a defiant response to what he describes as “silly laws pretending to fight the contagion.” This evocative moniker serves as a visceral reminder of the band’s unyielding spirit and their commitment to confronting societal injustices through their music.

After writing songs and playing various concerts around Italy, they recorded the first album at their friend Niccolò Mazzantini’s esteemed “Orfan Recording” studio in Pisa. “All ten songs were recorded live in the studio, vocals excluded, then mixed on an analogic console, in just a week, to catch the rawness and the immediacy of the songs,” recalls Jacopo.

Starting with several guitar-lines, the band has been meticulously crafting each song, infusing them with the essence of true punk-rock. “Musically, we’re in the punk-rock lane, trying to add melodies while maintaining fast and aggressive,” elaborates Cosimo. Each of the ten tracks on “You Are Next” is an explosive blend of palpable energy and urgency, resulting in an untamed sound that captivates by their unconventional attitudes.
