Dead Body Collection - HNW VOL. 1 | Homage To Harsh Noise Wall Tapes [Victimology Rec - 2010]

This four disc release finds this highly prolific Serbian based HNW  project taking the work of eight other HNW acts (Griz+zlor,Självhat,Smrznik, Å, Oblive,Svartvit and Werewolf Jerusalem.) And feeds it through his peddles to create depraved and mainly more brutal takes on the original tracks.

I guess you’d call this a remix album, but it's of the most extreme and brutal form- there are no beats, extra elements, or silly extra singing voices added to the tracks here; what’s added is more feed-back, more sonic ugliness and more brutal grimness. DBC takes each track from there original form( be it tape, cdr or wave file) then feeds the tracks back through up to five peddles, and  the results vary from been slightly altered to complete blown-out and  white noise abused version of each track.

DBC has put two tracks a piece on each of the four discs, and playing this as just one long  over four hour attack on the senses is great. Sure like any type of remixed or re-contextualised project this is somewhat hit ‘n’ miss affair, with a few tracks here either sounding too much like the original tracks or just not been that effective in their own right. Yet there are also great moments like his re-raping of Vomir’s Proanomie, which has made me reconsider and enjoy this particular vomir track/ album that had always underwhelmed me in the past.  Or DBC's violent and seared re-churning of Svartvit' – Dodecafonie, which makes this often wondering c90 release more urgent and instant.


This is certainly not a release for newbie to the scene & it’s not the best thing DBC has put out, but taken as a whole this collection is worthwhile and extremely unforgiving release which will please long term wall-heads.  It will be interesting to see if DBC does do a second volume, and what he takes on next to bend and sonical pervert to the DBC way.
