Dead Body Collection - Dead end Whoredom [Victimology Rec - 2010]

“Dead end Whoredom” sees this highly prolific(this is the projects 25th release since last year!) and brutal Serbian HNW project focus in more on female torture and serial killer themes, than the projects usual medical ‘n’ macabre based themes. It also sees female screams of torture being added to DBC’s ‘wall’ of sound to somewhat mixed results.

The CDR features just one seventy seven minute track of intense, battering and brutal walled-noise which finds DBC unfolding a fairly rapid paced thick ‘n’ slightly crusty wall of juddering & jittering static toned noise that stays fixed and nasty through-out. For the most part  the ‘wall’ has a brutally persistent and sleazed feel to it, but sadly there’s one thing that keeps this from being a great and rewarding ‘wall’. and that one thing is the female screams that pop up every ten or so minutes. Firstly it seems to be the same single scream sample that’s being  used again and again- surely there could have been some variation or mix of screaming/begging tones?. Secondly DBC just drops the scream on top of the 'wall' and makes no attempt to mix or stretch it into the ‘wall’, so it just sounds a little sloppy and none too effective. The track also features screams and pained wails at the start & end of the track, and these work a lot better than in the body of the track; and thier particular effective in the end torture breakdown where there lots of pained  female sobbing, and then a slicing of knifes as the track exists.

So to summing up on this release- it’s good to see DBC trying different and new elements in his sound it’s just a pity that more effort & time wasn’t put into mixing and structuring them in a more terrifying and effective manner. Because what your left with now is a ‘wall’ that could have being great, brutal and nasty , but instead sounds rather amateurish and sloppy every time the same old scream  sample pops up in the wall.
