Dead Body Collection/Ascites - Tissue Damage [Breaching Static - 2011]“Tissue Damage” is a seared & extreme medical/surgery themed HNW collaboration between US Texas based three piece Ascites, and ghoulish/ brutal one man Serbian based project Dead Body Collection. Each project offers up two sets of original track source material, which the other project gives a final flaying & boiling mix to.
Each of the four tracks on offer here come in near the twenty minute mark, and each track is as extreme & truly seared as the last. The release opens up with a track entitled “Bovine” which finds Ascites re-searing the original source material by DBC. The ‘walls’ a brutal sonic weave of billowing flame like roasting, and juddering ‘n’ slight hissing static noise churn-the tracks both thick, unmoving, and head boiling fierce in it’s intent.
Track tow is entitled “Argon Beam Coagulator” , and it finds DBC brutalising Ascites material. This ‘wall’ is a very angry and battering mixture of juddering bass like over boil, with an under-carriage of juddering ‘n’ jittering mid tone noise tonalities. The tracks very urgent, violent and unstoppable .
Tracks three is entitled “Harmonic Scalpel”, and it finds Ascites unfolding a low-fi and bleak take on DBC's material. The ‘walls’ fast paced, yet stark and it finds a mixture of juddering circular static over a stuck billowing ‘n’ furnace roaring drone. The track has a much more lo-fi & crusty feel compared with the other tracks here, and it creates a nice nihilistic static white-out feel.
So Last of all we have “Kleppinger”, which finds DBC strapping down & drilling into Ascites track to create this very ugent and externe bass bound noise attack. The ‘walls’ a mixture of short ‘n’ locked bass judder, and jittering ‘n’ stuck static buzzing/ drilling noise tone. The track really feels like your strapped to an hospital operation table, and your heads been randomly drilled by a buzzing and aged hand drill.
So “Tissue Damage” is a very extreme and brutal mix of these two projects sounds to create a truly seared and unrelenting attack on the sonic sensors in four parts. One for the more seasoned ‘wall –head’!.Roger Batty
