SIDE A.)

I.) BLEAK:
"Bleak" is a good title as well as a fitting
description for this one...And "Grim" is just 
as fitting for the track on the B side. Here
we have a solid slab of scorched HNW that sounds
like an infinite loop of the sounds of tearing flesh,
Crunching mandibles and decomposition. Deep and jagged
stuff that rips apart and ravages the listeners sanity
over an extended period of time. Two words that continually
come to mind while listening to this are "Burnt" and "Charred" 
as the piece has a quality similar to that of a fire slowly
devouring all in it's path. There is nothing here other than
various layers of distortion that form infinite patterns of
audio agony. Hidden rhythms invoke images of mountains of
decay and flesh upon a mass funeral pyre. Denser tones form
a haze of smoke that carries us through what sounds like an
endless field of giant fire ants stripping meat from the bones
of burnt bodies. As far as Harsh Noise Wall goes, This is about
as pure as it gets. This is a long one so get comfortable.


SIDE B.)

II.) GRIM:
"Grim" is just as bleak as "Bleak" was grim. A nihilistic 
vacuum of crackling sound that eats away at you and breaks down 
your will and endurance. The overall composition of the piece is 
very similar to the previous side but a little "extra crispy" this 
time around. There is also a very quiet undercurrent of sound that
could be compared to a silent machine pushing out air. Basically it
sounds like air and popping static pouring out of a massive ventilation 
device. There is a calming lull to this one that wasn't quite as present 
on the previous side. If someone asked me what HNW was this would be one
of the first releases I'd show them. Whether or not they get it or enjoy
it is their problem...But for those of us who do, This is a great tape.
HNW is lost on many people, Myself included at first...I am glad I was
able to wrap my mind around the concept/purpose and appeal of the genre
though because now releases like this are embraced. Sometimes you just
want to sit in total darkness and let raw sound remove you from the world
around you. This is a cassette for those moments.

PURE HNW. BE OBLITERATED:

7/10
