Sado-Mania - Permission [H Series/Deadline Recordings - 2009]

The Sado-Mania project brings together Richard Ramirez (Werewolf Jerusalem, An Innocent young throat Cutter, Black Leather Jesus,ect) and Maria Velasquez(Tissa Mawartyassari, Death Carries A Cane, Devil Times Five, Sado-Mania, Torso Law). This project takes it's name & much of it’s sleeve imagery from Jess Franco’s sleazy women in Prison movie of the same name from 1981. This C30 tape offers up two fairly unchanging yet rewarding sides of HNW matter.

Sadly as either side has  tape  does'nt have a number or a letter on; I’m not sure which side is which but each side offers up a fifteen minute ‘wall’ of noise entitled 'Grand Seduction' & 'Grand Seduction prt2' respectively. On the first side I played we get a  ‘wall’  that’s built around: a rotating & bellowing blade like purr ‘n’ hum, a mid-pace stuck static jump and juddering static loop. For most of it’s sonic life the track follows a fairly repetitively series of patterns, through there quite enjoyable & entertaining in the circling tones. The tracks fairly open & old school industrial tinged in it’s feeling for most of the track, but at around the eight minute mark the track turns thicker & more roaring in it’s feel as the original tones turn more caustic & noisy.

The second side returns with a ‘wall’ made from a similar set of interlocking tones taking in rotating, static jumps & skips, and juddering grey noise hums- but this side seems a little more muffled & airless than the first side it also has more smaller jumping static tones present too. Like the first side it thickens up around the eight mark, but it becomes a bit more electro fired in its tone which brought to mind some ones naked body been endless prodded & struck with an arching & elctro jumping cattle prod. It’s a pity when the track comes to an end, as really it would have been nice to see the pair amp it up another level in the intensity stakes.

So in summing up two quite trance inducing  & enjoyable sides of HNW matter that really feels like a blanced mix between both Ramirez & Velasquez take on ‘wall’ making. My only criticism here is  that both sides do use rather similar  sounding selection of tones & noise layers to create their ‘wall’s’, but that I guess this  has it’s plus & minus sides depending on you feel about unchanging walls of noise.
