Hearse Fetish - Trash Day Beauty/Body [Self Release - 2012]Hearse Fetish is a relatively new churning extreme industrialized HNW project from Mayfield USA. The project start late spring 2011, and since then they’ve steadily put out release five release in CDR or download format- “Trash Day Beauty/Body” comes in CDR form, and offers up one forty five minute.
The CDR comes in a colour PC printed card cover that features a slightly out-of-focus & almost monochrome picture of a dump. Also included is a single inlay sheet that features a rather grim poem themed around a dead women been found on a trash damp, and this is also the theme for the whole release.
The single track on offer here is entitled “Her Body Made Such Pretty Scenery”, and this comes in at the 45.58 mark. The track starts out with a line of muffled feed back, and this firing up noise element, which sounds like someone trying to start up a low powered motor. With-in a minute or so we’re into the proper ‘wall’, and this mixers together a repetitive chugging motor or sped-up road drill type texture, and a line of chiming 'n' churing almost guitar drone like texture. These tow elements are feed out into a fixed ‘wall’ of industrialized wall making, and I must say the mixture of the brutal motor texture & meditative chiming drone element is most effective & engaging through-out the tracks entire length.
So “Trash Day Beauty/Body” is a rewarding & entrancing mixture of chugging nastiness & drifting drone based chiming. I reviewed this project’s first release last year, and found it promising if more than a little underwhelming- so it’s always great to see a project growing into their promise & that’s exactly what “Trash Day Beauty/Body” does….I look forward to hearing more Hearse Fetish, & their fairly original take on wall-making.Roger Batty
