Deep Throat Choir - Golem [Somnlent Shelter Records - 2009]

‘Golem’ is the first & only release so far by one man based Connecticut HNW project Deep Throat Choir & on offer here is a single 38 minute ‘wall’ which shows some interesting promise, but sadly the whole thing is rather let down by one rather glaring fault.

And the glaring fault is the production- the whole track is just recorded at such a low & weedy sounding level; meaning you have to pump the volume right-up to even make-out some of what’s going on here & even then it just sounds flat & well rather weak. Harsh Noise Wall is all about  engulfing & swallowing you in boiling sound, but this just lightly pissers on you due to the limb production. That said if you whack the sound  way-up you can make out a quite interesting, crackling & flowing river of static tone thickness & depth- that sometimes has some rather appealing jittering & juddering undercurrents running through it.

Really the whole disc is such a missed opportunity due to the naff & weedy production. It really could have been a very promising & rewarding addition to the rapidly growing HNW scene, but as it stands at present it’s deeply flawed & rather frustrating due to the production choice.
