Dead Body Collection - Maggotkind(Ode To Dying Mankind) [Sweet Solitude Records - 2010]

“Maggotkind” represents one of the longest ever pieces of recorded and released Harsh Noise wall Sonics. The single track on offer on this audio DVDR comes in at six hours,  forty five minutes and forty eight seconds of brutal and dense wall-making from this highly prolific Serbian based project.

The distinctive and rather stomach churning green dvd case packaging is worthy of a mention as it features a full colour, close-up and wrap around picture of a mass  of hundreds of maggots; which of course is very fitting to the releases title, and the squirming mass of brutal static texturing inside. The maggot picture is nicely mirrored on the dvdr disc too- all which makes this a very class yet grim looking first releases from this new UK based HNW label.

So lets move on the truly massive, extremely vast and  punishingly brutal walled of noise inside. The ‘wall’ starts off life as a rapid, dense and seared mixture of judder and slightly roar bound jittering that weaved into a firm and locked state for it’s first hour or so. As the hour marks tick by DBC  alters and changes the wall’s texture and make-up just slightly- be it  by adding a more ragged static judder to the mix, or a deeper drilling caustic drone texture as the central focuses, or adding in  a slightly skipping textured tone to the ‘wall’. But for all the shifts and alterations along it’s huge and destructive path the ‘wall’ never lessens or thins out….so this is near on seven hours of pure and unadulterated extreme walled noise.

I’ll have to admit I’ve not played the whole thing in one single sitting- as firstly & practically one doesn’t have near on seven hours to play any bit of music or sound continuously. And secondly for reasons of sanity, as I'm not really sure what effect playing such extreme noise would do to you over prolonged period!.  I  have though played it in sections of up to two hours at a time, and have played the whole pieces several times though. And I must say it’s quite an experiencel with ones mood nicely moving from entranced to strangely enraged over the longer submersions in this ‘wall.


So in summing “Maggotkind” offers up one of the longest and most torturous runs of sound you’ll ever likely to come across- it's also both unforgiving ly brutal yet also oddly addictive. This  release is very much for your seasoned and hardcore wall fan, due to it’s length and scope- but it’s certainly another great DBC release, and a great and classy looking first release from the Sweet Solitude label.
