- Self Titled [Zvukovina - 2009]

(Lost Necks) is a  brutal &  brain roasting HNW collaboration between Sarajevo Neven Misaljevich(of Smrznik and one of the minds behind the excellent Zvukovina label) and Russian based Alexander Kibanov (from , and many other projects and labels such as Mind Noise Disintegration).

On offer here is a nearly thirty five minutes worth of thick, rolling and bleakly droning walled noise. The pair thunder, hammer and boar out the persistent, greyed and complete hopeless wall at you through-out the tracks lenght with zero let-up. I guess the best way to describe the  wall  is as  rumbling, thick and crusty metallic like in its feel- imagine rolling over and over at a fair rate down the side mountain in a thick steel tank and you get some idea of what to expect here. Theres really zero movement or textural shift here -it's just thickly and hopelessly  batters away at you for its near -on thirty five minutes run-time.

Im not really sure what I think about this release as its so bleak, nihilistic and utterly hopeless through-out . I can certainly appreciate it on a purely torturous and masochistic level, but beyond that theres nothing really moorish, trance inducing or addictive about the wall on offer hereso its not something I can see my self returning to often, accept when Im feeling very intensely self or world hating.
