Bachir Gemayel - HNWar [The Order Of The HNW - 2011]

This is the third volume in The Order Of The HNW series- each release in the series offers up walled noise recordings & related HNW texts. “HNWar” offers up a just under twenty minutes of highly active & violent textured noise from middle eastern war ‘n’ culture themed US project Bachir Gemayel.

The release inlay follows the same house style of all this series releases with stark, simply yet highly effective black & white cover artwork -featuring   just three overlaid black blocks. Also as with all the release in the series we get some HNW themed text, and the text here talks about the track with-in as a sonic display of the fighting & troubles with-in the middle east, comparing it to the sound of bullets flying past you & bombs tearing concert apart.

The track utilizes just misbaha beads & bullet casers as its sound source. And it goes from from: very agitated & dense cracking meshes of tone, intense hacking ‘n’ jittering dwells, taut web’s of juddering mid-ranged static weaved with smaller jitter sub-tones, billowing noise roars a fly with jittering ‘n’ searing tiny noise textures, ect.

The twenty minute play time may seem a little short for what  is supposed to be a full length release,  but boy does this track fit in a hell of a lot of textural  shifts ‘n’ turns, yet it still retains it’s barrage like wall attack. This is well worth a look if you enjoy active, yet  persistent violent HNW.
