I know there's going to be trouble when a promotional CD or package appears in my mailbox without advance notification or, in the case of Italy's Schizophrenia, without warning. I suppose the delivery of their latest work to Dangerdog Music Reviews, Teach Me Love could be excused for the most basic of reasons: they simply did not read or understand the Dangerdog submission guidelines. Thankfully, only a few bands do this, and gratefully, most are actually good. Regarding the latter, in terms of skill and actual music, Schizophrenia falls mysteriously in between like that short period of time between sundown and complete darkness.
I guess the larger music category is Industrial of which, for the most part, I have little information and mostly ignore. Preceding a little deeper, Schizophrenia's music appears to be industrial shellacked with death metal and dance music. If you can imagine, without laughing, Rob/White Zombie smoking crack and then stumbling on to the dance floor, then you may have an audio-vision of Schizophrenia's style. It's a bizarre and deficient vision, but I hope it helps. Frankly, there wasn't much here for me. However, it did have one benefit (or side effect, depending on your perspective): it kept me laughing as I drove home from work today.
If you're curious, a bit amused, or generally like this sort of music, Schizophrenia offers the entire Teach Me Love CD as a free download on their website.

My childhood was safe and sane. No abuse and no traumas. I was surrounded by a large and loving family who taught me the importance of hard work and a meaningful education.

Lyrically I like to use themes that make the listener use his or her imagination, and to give a little of the lessons I've learned in my own life.
