Nascitari/Dead Perfection - Split [Claustrophilia Records/ Murderabilia Records - 2012]

This split CDR brings together tow lengthy & totally hopeless slices of suicidal Harsh Noise Wall. We have a just over twenty six minute track from Italian act  Nascitari, and one thirty one minute track  from Dead Perfection- which is a HNW side project of members of Italian power electronics project Deviated Sister TV.

First  up we must discuss the releases artwork which features some of the disturbing & unsettling artwork  I’ve seen in some time. The front cover of the DVD sized case features a full colour picture of a  man with extreme anorexia- his chest and lower half of his body is covered in razor slashes & his face is hidden behind a sheet. The back cover features two grim looking black & white pictures of two people who have hung themselves in a cell of some sort.  The DVD case also includes two inlays- the first one features a shot from Nascitari's live show, and this takes in a picture of Lorenzo N with a white sheet over his head & a shot gun pointed at his head. The second inlay features a picture of a blood soaked bathroom wall with a bloody arm laid against it with the word ‘perfect’ carved into the arms flesh.

So onto the noise with-in, and first up we have the Nascitari track which is entitled “Le vie del suicidio sono infinite” (in english The streets of suicide are endless).  The track opens with a minute or so of relatively subdued ‘n’ stripped juddering noise, before lunching into a more full, dense & impenetrable ‘wall’. The track unfolds in a fairly fixed & bleak manner, and it’s built around a murky ‘n’ hope sucking mixture of droning/ rumbling noise & jittering slightly crisper noise tonalities- the tones utilized fall some between the  low & mid range.  As the track progresses it starts to sound a little more billowing in it’s textural make-up, and in it’s last few minutes the tracks textural grain seems to split down 'n' jerk from time to time – yet  the thick bleakness of the ‘wall’ stays the same through-out it’s full run-time. All told the track is suitable punishing, stark & suffocating in it’s attack, and it’s a good example of inescapable walled noise

Track two is of course the Dead Perfection track, and this is entitled “Every 40 seconds”. The track opens with a  minute or so sample of Italian man talking, I’m afaid I’m not sure what he’s saying, but I suspect it’s something to do with death or sucide. Then we drop into the ‘wall’ which is a  pained mix of juddering ‘n’ scorching textural churn that's weaved into a seared ‘n’ drilling mass of sound.  Once again this is fairly fixed in its structure, yet from time to time you do get subtle shifts with-in the track seared textural weave.  Just like the first track this is inescapable & hopeless in its feel, through there is a bit more of a pained & taut vibe here compared with the murky feel of the first track.

So to sum up- if you enjoy a grim mixture of shocking imagery & dense/ brutal noise this is well worth a look.
