Bast - Witch [Violent Revolution International - 2010]

This c60 offers up two highly nasty, bass brooding and lengthy slices of extreme walled noise from this Louisiana based project that has links with other Violent Revolution International based projects such as Slaughter-Fetus & Peiste.

On side one we have “Witch A” which is a huge and brain juddering slice of taut, tense and brutal HNW that roles in just shy of the twenty three minute mark. The track is centred around this extremely loud & bass bruised wall of textural judder, which keeps on rolling and rolling like a huge everthing flatten sonic tank. Around this main tone ever so often you get to hear traces and scrapes of other noise tones like: wiry static jitters, crunching hacks and crusty slices- but these feel like tiny buildings or  miniature tonally cites compared with the total overwhelming and crushing central tone.

Over onto side two we have “Witch B”  which is another very loud and intense example of walled matter that comes in at just under the twenty five minutes mark. Like the first side this ‘walls’ once more based around a judder bound wall, but it’s a bit more electro ripping than it is bass like. For the first two or so minutes the track follows a fairly similar path to the first side, then this huge ripping ‘n’ tearing electro judder boils out of the tracks centre and really takes over the tracks brutal central core. Once again there are traces of static jitters and skips here and there, but the 'wall' mainly focusing all it’s power on the central ripping ‘n’ tearing element, which seems to become a bit more battering, roaring furnace like and judder bound as it goes along- maybe the witch of the title is being roasted on a fire….

Simply put “Witch” offers up two very lengthy, brutal and very rewarding no-nonsense examples of wall making that will pummel and batter down even the most seasoned wall heads. Great stuff and one of my favourite releases from this prolific collective/label
