I.) THINGS ARE TAKING PLACE:
Today I am reviewing two very limited mini cdr's 
released through the Serious Business label, The
first being a project called NATURE BOY that is 
themed around the professional wrestler Ric Flair
AKA "The Nature Boy." It's hard tell if this is a
loving tribute to a childhood idol or merely tongue
in cheek humor, But either way we have a cool little
HNW cd in our hands. "Things Taking Place" opens with
a mandatory Ric Flair sample and stage dives right into
a heavy static beatdown. The wall begins pretty much as 
a standard HNW piece. Oppressive and on the denser side
of the sonic spectrum. Additional layers are piled over
top and once we reach the two minute mark it's a crushing 
mass that feels like it'd weigh a ton if
it could be manifested into a physical slab. Due to
the slight changes it's not pure HNW at least in the
eyes of the purists, But I see no reason to let that
stop you from enjoying it as it is. At a little over 
five minutes in length, It has time to morph into
various aural forms...Each one slightly more immense
than the last. I think if you shoved a handheld field
recorder up Ric Flair's rectum it might sound something
like this. I don't mean that as an insult...Just that
this is a dense writhing mass of gurgling noise. All in
all it's a fun listen for the times when you just want 
Harsh Noise alone.

I.) ENDING ON NOTHING:
Next up we have ISOLATION ORDER. Once again we
have a single track, This time bordering on the 
six minute mark. No intro, No Lyrics, Just noise. 
"Ending On Nothing is a little more dynamic than 
the other disc. A blown out, Muffled, Harsh and
windswept soundscape featuring roaring tides of
distortion and panned filter abuse. Keeping in
sync with the project and track name this does
have a very "Isolationist" sound to it. Audio
nihilism that sounds like a recording taken in
a storm ravaged, Wind-whipped no man's land.
There is a lot of movement on this piece that
really adds to the feeling that there is a 
natural disaster happening all around you.
I honestly enjoyed this one quite a bit and
would be interested in seeing what else has
been released under this project. Both discs
here offer what they promised to. No games,
Gimmiks or bullshit.Harsh Noise is serious 
business.

THIS IS A PRETTY COOL SERIES OF RELEASES JUDGING
FROM THESE TWO CDR. GREAT COLLECTORS ITEMS WITH
SOME PRETTY COOL SOUNDS AND PACKAGING:

  1. Thank you for the kind words about the Isolation Order project. It ended in the summer of 2015 after a few years of minimal activity. Here is some stuff for you to enjoy:

    I have been planning on starting a new solo project but I have stayed away from it. I play in duos along with my main projects these days. Nice to see a review though :) Keep up the good work.
