Dead Body Collection - Those Tiny Eyes Were Beautiful And...Dead [Turgid Animal - 2010]

“Those Tiny Eyes Were Beautiful And...Dead” is a C60 cassette release from late last year which offers up two sides of grim, numbing & extreme walled noise from this highly prolific & ghoulish subject themed Serbian project.

Theme wise this is possible one of the most(to my mind) disturbing DBC release thus far, as it’s all about dead children- the cover features a very troubling & disturbing picture of a child’s buried dead face….I guess this must be sourced from some sick movie still or internet search, but it's very troubling & unpleasant.


Moving onto the sonic ‘walls’ with-in & each side is a fairly text book example of DBC's unrelenting, ghoulish & brutal take on HNW. Each side long track is based around a drilling & descending mid-paced bass throb/judder that’s played over by a tightly reined jittering ‘n’ purring tonalities. Both sides of noise are deeply oppressive and sinisterly entrancing in their attack & unfold, and at times one almost feels like your being slowly but surely buried under the grim & ghoulish throb ’n’ drill of the track. Side ones ‘wall’ has a muffled & suffocating quality, where as side twos 'wall' feels a bit more pressing & intense; though both sides are fairly similar in there textural make-up.

So this  particularly unsettlingly themed release offers up two mid-length examples of DBC’s locked, unrelenting & death/decay scented walled noise. To sum up a disturbing theme & two entrancing if a little predictable slices of ghoulish HNW.
