Hearse Fetish - Prostitution In the Dark [Self Release - 2011]

Hearse Fetish is a churning extreme industrlized HNW/ Hash Noise project from Mayfield USA. “Prostitution In the Dark” is the projects first released offering, and the CDR consists of three 15 minute tracks.

The completely black CDR comes a black crape paper sleeve that’s wrapped in black storage tape. There’s a small black crape paper inlay inside along with the CDR & that features just  the projects name, the albums title, and track listing- so all very mysterious & very black!.

The three tracks on offer with-in are built around churning and grating industrial noise loops that either lock down into each other to create a crude & battering wall, or they shift and rage around each other to create a billow & raging active HNW structure that often moves towards more straight harsh noise territory. I guess the closet comparison sound wise is a less manic & less muilti layerd take on the kind of  noisy blacked industrial wall like dwells Black Leather Jesus do sometimes.  Sadly both tracks one & track two - Starling Encounter & Sillouetted by Diminishing candle( cool track title!)- follow similar shifting & churning structures,  and they feel a bit too random for their own good, this means the tracks often lack an focus or  returning theme meaning they offten feel more like noise jams instead of fully formed tracks.

Track three “No Illumination” attempts to stay in a slightly more fixed in its state, and it features a slower more focus set of crude juddering machine flickers, hellish looped crushing’s & buried eerier drone lines.  These elements all create quite an nice looped noisy & blacked ritual state, and it’s really quite effective for the first five or so minutes. But sadly pretty soon Hearse Fetish starts to try and extend, drag & warp the sounds into a more noisy & ultimately muddled state which rather ruins the atmosphere he’s just created. Yet for all the later texturally meddling’s this is the most effective, rounded & focused of the three tracks here.

To sum up “Prostitution in the Dark” is an acceptable   enough opening shot as the projects sound & tone is nicely fixed. I just wish the tracks were a little less inter-changeable , focused, and that HF could leave a fixed & effective noise wall to develop & take hold of the listener instead of constantly fiddling with it.
