Dead Body Collection - Nosocomephobia [Self release - 2012]

This CDR release from this Serbian HNW project takes it’s name from the extreme fear of hospitals, and fittingly Dead Body Collection offers up two twitching, clinical & relatively stripped( by DBC standards) edgy static studies or slices of taut/ nightmarish ANW.

Opening up the disc we have the 24.34 of “First Symptoms”. This track starts off being built around a web of thin static tone- which takes in jittering & skipping static tone. Underneath this is a line of nervous yet highly contracted & un-reeling juddering tonality, which feels like it's a flattened & compacted bass tone.  At the 8.25 mark these muffled, reverb lined & slowly colliding hollow clunking tones appear, and these create a nice intense/ enclosing vibe. As the track  progresses these tones seem to  multiple & haze together to cause this dizzying & disorientating feel- also towards the end the tones seem to become more violent & rapid in there feeling as if ones panic is getting more & more. The track exits with a fading mass of  metallic like clunking tones.


Track two is entitled “Second Symptoms” and comes in at 17.01 mark. And this track starts off being built around a clinical yet suddenly jerking mass of jittering rain storm like static. Once again there’s a compressed bass tone buried deep in the ‘wall’, and it also has that unreeling quality once again- but this time the tones less noticeable & the static textures are a lot tighter in their feel. As the track progresses the ‘wall’ seems to get more sluggish & enclosing. At around the 7th minute the compressed bass tone seems to become more noticeable as the static rain pulls back slightly- the compressed bass tone has a nice worn machine like juddering feel about it now. As time goes on the static textures seem to thin down more & they start take on a slow vinyl like crackle, but there is the odd sudden deviation in the pattern which keeps you nicely on the edge. Also the compressed tone seems to start the drag & slow too. At the 14.45 mark the track just thins down to a great brooding 'n' slightly shuffling compressed bass tone- this is very constricting in it’s feel and has an  great ominous edge to it, making you almost want to look over your shoulder to make sure no-one is standing behind you.

So “Nosocomephobia” finds DBC departing from his normal bass bound intense & fixed brutal HNW attacks, for more taut & tense static work-outs. This is well worth a look if your in the mood for more claustrophobic ANW.
