White Gimp Mask - Take Her To The Woods [Toxic Industries/Irritant Series - 2011]

“Take Her To The Woods” offers up three slices of fairly vaired yet often atmospheric walled noise from this highly prolific Texas based  walled noise project. Behind the White Gimp Mask project is one Robert Newsome, whose also part of: Black Leather Jesus, The Girl In The Wooden Horse Torture, Streetmeat & Four Flies.

The release comes in the form of a CDR, and the three tracks last between just over the 15 minute mark to just under the 22 minute mark.  The first untitled track is the shortest of the three at the 15.47 mark, and it finds Newsome summoning up this droning ‘n’  bleak ‘wall’ of dense noise that conists of continually  rolling low ranged tone, and one, possible two, slightly higher toned static rumbles ‘n’ slow-mo jitters.  Newsome nicely mixers the tones together to create this continual yet sombre drone 'n' HNW mix.

The second untitled ‘wall’ is sequenced directly into the first so you get a nice little jolt when they change over. This second ‘wall’ thins things down  a little with a tighter electro machine like juddering, that’s mixture with a taut jittering static tonality- both tones are in the mid range, and the  'wall’  that Newsome has created seemingly gets tighter & more oppressive the longer it  goes on, as both tones seem to compressed together into this hypnotic yet nihilistic static mesh . This second track comes in at 21.17 mark.

So lastly we have untitled three, and once again this sequenced in from the last track, and this track comes in with a mixture of fairly  lose line of rumbling bass noise that’s played over by very small grained static jittering tone. This track comes in at the 21.26 mark, and it's the longest of the three tracks here. Again it’s another effective  ‘wall’, and it great to let your head get more & more sucked into crusty bass-bound grimness of it all

So all told this release offers up three fairly different ‘walls’, and each is as hypnotic as the next. This is certainly one of my favourite release of this project thus far, as all the tracks are good in their own right, but they also  work well together too.
