Dead Body Collection - Trypanophobia [Self Release - 2011]

“Trypanophobia” is quite a departure from the normal dense, unrelenting & normally bass seared Walled noise work of Serbian based Dead Body Collection. This two track CDR offers up a pair of taut & airless slices of Ambient walled Noise that still have more than a little bite to them.

The release comes in simple black & White paper cover that features on it’s front cover just a picture of a hypodermic needle.  Along with the CDR there’s a small slip of paper that details what Trypanophobia is- it’s is the extreme fear of medical procedures involving injections or hypodermic needles.

The first track is entitled “Treatment 1”, and this is  built around a locked taut yet quite thin layer of juddering ‘n’ jittering static, underneath this is a endless high pitched line of medically machine like piecing sound. The track wonderfullly captures a very panic & tense feeling, which I guess a suffer of Trypanophobia would have. The track comes in at just shy of the forty three minute mark, and through-out this time DBC managers to keep your attention well and truly hooked by this tense & claustrophobic slice of nasty AHNW.

Track two is entitled “Treatment 2”, and this is a little bit shorter than the first track at just under the thirty five minute mark. This track features a slightly slower & at times dragging layer of jittering 'n' juddering static that’s fed out in a taut & sometimes shunting but unstoppable manner. Underneath, & at times seemingly through the static texture is this piercing looped pitch that sounds like a stuck electronic fire alarm.  Again this ‘wall’ is most tense, surrounding & claustrophobic in it’s feel, through oddly after a time I found my self nicely tracing out into the ‘walls’ structure.

All told two very different sounding, yet highly rewarding medical themed & tense ‘n’ taut slices of AHNW from DBC. Sadly this release was ltd to only 30 copies, and given out to friends & supporters of DBC work…so you might find this a little difficult to get hold of. Lets hope this get a reissue at some point, as this certainly stands as one of favourite DBC releases in quite sometime.
