Placenta Lyposuction - Concrete Death [Phage Tapes - 2009]‘Concrete Death’ offers up two sides of c45 tape worth of thick, roaring & ugly Harsh Noise wall matter from this Croatian project that appeared on the scene mid-last year & has since put out five releases taking-in splits & compilation tracks.
Side ones ‘untitled’ track finds this very thick, rapid & cruel furnace like roar & deep caustic bellowing like noise loop that endlessly hammers into your head or stream rolling over & over you again. There is zero change in the main roasting & deep tone sears; though I do detect some very minor movement in the roaring textured sonic layout of the tracks billowing depths- like sudden attacks of mid-pace static jitters or more pronounce flame roaring textured highs. Through these are very slight yet rewarding buried touches to listen out for when the track sucks you deep into it’s sonic roast.
Onto side two and we have another side long untitled track on offer here. This sides ‘wall’ has a bit more defined hacking & chopping thick static vibe about it. With Placenta Lyposuction building a thick, crass, rough & sadistic bumping textured flow of a few interlocking tones. It feels like been in a rusted car going along a bumpy & pothole ridden road with your head been forceful pressed to the dank, decaying & rust crumbling floor of the car. Again like the first sides track it keeps focus & stayed in it’s crushing & flattering ‘walled’ attack, making for a very violent, unforgiving but worthwhile track.
So ‘Concrete Death’ gives the listener two sides of unforgiving, thick & nasty walled noise that’s focused & unblinking in it’s intense stance, yet rewarding & worthwhile in it’s brutal & moorish pummelling. Roger Batty
