Hash - Self titled [Creepsville Records - 2010]

Hash’s self titled debut album offers up one lengthy hour long track of tense, meshing & juddering Harsh Noise Wall matter, which keeps you nicely pined down & in-tranced through-out it's running time.

With out any fuss or build-up the track hacks straight into you with a tight, interlocking & very thick ‘wall’ of tones that have a very tense, focused & unforgiving feel about them, yet there's also quite a precise & clean feeling about the track too. The tracks constant rolling ‘wall’ of sound is built around  two ot three uniformed & tightly wound static juddering loops. Hash runs these tones into each other in a repetitive yet slightly shifting pattern that ties around you in a very tense and airless way. The interlocking tones fairly subtle shift from being throbbing, thickly crackling to rapid ripping; yet the 'wall' always stays thick. impenetrable & harshly rolling in it’s feel. I’ll have to admit on the whole I usually prefer shorter twenty to forty minute long ‘walls’, but I found this rather appealing in it’s precise yet nasty and quite trance inducing state. The track also has it’s own quite distinctive & tense take on the whole ‘wall’ making thing.

So a very nice, tense & thick opening shot from this new San Francisco based HNW project. As well as being the first release from the Hash project this is also the first release on the Creepsville label too- so it will be interesting to see what both label & project put out next.
