Mass Graves - Robbie Doe [Stasis - 2011]

“Robbie Doe” is the third release by this St. Louis HNW project which themes it’s unmoving and brutal Walled noise around ghost based or supernatural occurrences. Behind the project is Jeff Landgraf whose also in the great & more active HNW project Oblive, along with a few other none noise projects.

As with all of this projects work this release is themed around one ghost based or supernatural event, and the event here is the case of Robbie Doe of Cottage City, Maryland. Doe was a 13 year old boy who in 1949 was reputable possessed by a demon after messing around Ouija board. Robbie was seemingly been endlessly attacked by said demon- his bed shook so hard that he couldn't sleep at night. His blankets and sheets were torn from the bed. When he tried to hold onto them, he was reportedly pulled off the bed and onto the floor with the sheets still gripped in his hands. Things got so bad that a Jesuit priests was called into  performed a exorcism, and the whole case was used the main influence for the first Exorcist movie.

This release offers up a single hour long wall of nasty & macabre yet malevolent HNW. The track on offer here is built around a mid-paced meaty bass judder/ downward drilling tone that played over & weaved into by a mixture of slightly skipping & jittering static. Landgraf forces these elements together in a mainly uniformed and brutal mass of impenetrable noise- with the wall been nicely pressing & hypnotic too. The mainly track seems to stay around the same series of textures, but in the tracks last ten or so minutes it seems to get more sludgy bass drilling like in it’s feel.

So if you dig impenetrable, tense and drilling walled noise that has a brutally macabre spirit & theme running through it “Robbie Doe” will certainly be your cup of blood tinged  tea.
