Vice Wears Black Hose - Part 2 [Violent Noise Atrocities - 2009]Vice Wears Black Hose is harsh noise/wall noise project that brings together two respected US noise mongers in the form of Sam McKinlay of The Rita and Richard Ramirez of Werewolf Jerusalem & Black Leather Jesus. This cd takes in one long 40 minute track of unforgiving harsh static texturing and soinc suffocation.
The track falls in a hardcore noise fashion between all out wall noise and tense roaring harsh noise storm-that slowly shifts through different deep grains of noise textures. The pair build up an impressive and all engulf wall of roaring sound that goes from sounding like been under a endlessly pouring loud static water fall, to been trapped in side a decaying tin shack as hard hail and rain storm beats down on you at an unforgiving rate. The pair keep with-in deeper roaring and at times almost subterranean noise tones through-out the piece, as well as managing to keep the sound tinged with a nice sleazy and airless atmosphere. The track starts off relatively quiet with a low roar that tempts the listener to turn up the sound louder, but pretty soon it kicks in like a primal force rolling over your head like a stream roller; with the pair keeping the track rolling in a dense and unforgiving fashion for the whole of it's running time with only slight shifts in the texture of the noise.
Clearly not for those looking for subtle, rhythmic or harmonic traces with-in their noise matter as this is brutal, suffocating and unforgiving noise of the highest order. And through it’s extremely hash it’s somehow also rather hypnotic and strangely compelling in its roaring and ear frying weight and depth. Roger Batty
