Sturmgeschütz - Battlefield Recordings [Victimology Records - 2010]“Battlefield Recordings” is the 4th full length release from this battle and warfare obsessed Serbian HNW project who makes thick and unbreakable walled noise.
The pro-pressed CDR features a single fifty minute track that pulls the listener deep into a very war torn 'wall' of thick and painful sound. The ‘wall’ is a mixture of rolling tank like judder ‘n’ rumble, and thick yet locked static jittering- both elements are fed along side each other in a uniformed and unbreakable manner for the full length of the track. And the track really does give one the feeling of being stuck on a battlefield filled with endlessly rolling and human life crashing tanks. The ‘wall’ certainly creates the feeling of war very nicely, through I felt my attention did start to ebb towards the last twenty minutes of the track- so maybe it should have been cut down a little.
All in all this is another worthwhile release from this Serbian project, which keeps the warring/ destructive themes and sounds to forefront of it’s sound. It’s not the best ‘wall’ I’ve heard from the project, but it’s not the worst either. I guess if you enjoyed the projects other releases pick this up, but if your still to check them out start with “Untitled Recordings 1942” which is the most successful releases I’ve heard from the project thus far.Roger Batty
