Nascitari - Noi eravamo come voi, Voi sarete come noi [Claustrophilia Records - 2011]

“Noi eravamo come voi, Voi sarete come noi” finds this grim & often suicidal themed Italian based  HNW project offering up two twenty plus minute slices of searing, blacken & brutalising walled noise.

The hand made packaging for this release is worth a mention- it consist of a old see-through jewel case like dvd box that’s filled with earth behind the black CDR. The case is also spray painted black around the edges. Inside the front of the case is eight page booklet which features texts & nihilistic artwork, along with a grim poem  about an junky, human flesh, cloned Jesus Christ & a duck cemetery by Andrea Leonessa.


Moving onto the ‘walls’ with-in & first up we have “Vivo In Una Tomba”( which translates to roughly Alive in a Tomb or Vault), this track comes in at  just over the twenty three & a half minute mark. The track starts out with a minute or so of tight ‘n’ stark arcing ‘n’ jumping like static tonality- this sounds like it could be a lo-fi recording of something or some one been electrocuted over & over again. Then we jump into fuller  & thicker walled attack which mixers the original arcing static 'n' jumping tone with a grim line of slightly juddering noise tone. As the track goes on a nice feeling of movement, tone pattern alteration  & electro searing pain is created by the two tones running along side each other- both tones I think are fairly simple in there make up, but together they create this deeply grim & seemingly semi-active wall of grimness. The track finishers off with what I take is a film sample from an Italian film that features two men having an at times heated conversation- this last around the minute mark.

Track twos title follows on with the death & burial theme, it’s entitled “Il Mio Amore Per  Le Fosse” (roughly translated to My Love For the Graves). This track comes in at just shy of the twenty two minute & twenty second mark, and this track jumps straight in with a full ‘wall’. It’s built around this very muddy & cluttering mix of judder ‘n’  descending noise that’s serrated from time to time by this slicing static tonality- for some reason this ‘wall’  brings to my mind a dirt covered & crazed person wildly  tearing away earth & turf from a grave plot with  just their bare hands. As the track progresses it seems to get more nasty, crude & suffocation in it’s feel, and  this brings to my mind the image of the mad digger now at the bottom of the grave in the coffin with the nearly total decayed corpse occupant; as earth is once more piled back on top of them both. Around the 15 minute mark the ‘wall’ shifts to a more simple juddering and slowly diming & fading pattern which in the end finds the track drifting to melancholic stringed &  female operatic classical music for a minute or so before the ‘wall’ rips back in with a ragged earth churning meets descending judder.  All told it’s another very effective & grim track, and the surprising dip into melancholic operatic music was very effective especially when the ‘wall’ rips back in with all it's brutal & ugly spirit…..maybe someone could extend this mix further? A sort of operatic walled noise cross breed!?.

So in conclusion this CDR finds Nascitari offering up two rewarding, often crude & nasty sounding ‘walls’ with a nicely grim  theme of  premature burial & necro bound love. And the hand made, earth lined & grim packaging really adds  another layer of bleakness to the whole release.
