Remlap & Werewolf Jerusalem - Collaboration [Pointless Blank Records - 2009]

On offer here is 60 minutes worth of violent & at times darkly atmospheric HWN collaboration between Werewolf Jerusalem(Richard Ramirez's most know & prolific project) & Remlap(the harsh wall noise project of Canadian Jake Vida who also runs Pointless Blank records).

On offer here are  two tracks which both fall around the half a hour mark a piece. The first 'Untitled' track is built around a series of fairly active & shifting static storm tones which the pair nicely layer, drag & rub over each other in a rather appealing & rewarding manner. As the piece progresses the trapped static tones become longer, more sluggishly & jittering at first; then more agitated and roaring in their feel. The  pair manage to keep the wall nicely thick & dense through most of the piece, though towards the last ten minutes or so it becomes alot more juddering & flickering on & off in it’s tone. In the last five minutes this quite long, quite eerier & grey static tone appears under the dying down roaring wall of noise & by the last minute or so we’re just left with creepy long stretched out grey static tone which seems to hint of a damned winters night spent in an abandoned & creepy house.

The second track comes in once more with a thick wall of sound, but it starts off in with a more muffled aquatic edge to the thick roars & storms of noise matter; the track is also slightly slower & caustic melting in it’s feel than the first track. Around the six minute mark the track becomes a lot more jittering in it’s feel with hints of jagged, ripping & rippling junk noise tones mixed with the slow jumping static tones to build a nice brutal sliding wall of sound.  Towards the twenty minute mark it gets a lot more speedy & jittering in it’s feel, the last minute or so of the track nicely fades out with a slowly crunching & atmospheric static jittering tone which once more hints at the aquatic crunch & slow submerging feel of the start of the track.

So all in all two very rewarding, crushing yet often atmospherically laced tracks worth of shifting & progressive wall making. To buy direct & hear samples pop along to Pointless blanks website here.
