Carrion Black Pit/ Nascitari - The Conqueror Worm [Forever Escaping Boredom - 2012]

This C60 split tape offers up two brutal & wall noise based celebrations of Edgar Allan Poe’s poem “The Conqueror Worm”. On side one we have a track from São Paulo, Brazil  based Carrion Black Pit, and on side two a track from  Italian based Nascitari.

The tapes sleeve is pro-done colour cover affair that takes in a suitable gothic mixture ofold  book like cover design & fat sinister worm  drawings.

Taking up the first side we have Carrion Black Pit track which is entitled “O Verme Conquistado”, and I’m afraid to say I was more than a little let down by this track. You see this project’s work normally brews up a creative & often atmospheric mix of horror themed  HNW & ANW, and  their sound is normally quite distinctive & rewarding.  The track on offer here is basically a rather bland slice of mostly fixed wall-making that’s built around low end billowing ‘n’ rumbling that’s weaved with more mid ranged jittering. Sure it sound’s lo-fi & churning worm like, but to me the ‘wall’ just felt uninspired & frankly boring. A real disappointment.

Flipping over to side two & we have the Nascitari track, and this is entitled “Il Verme Conquistatore". It starts off with a familiar sample of waltz like classical music, before the ‘wall’ starts in around the minute & a quarter mark. Once again this track mixers together deep billowing & rumbling low end with jittering more crisper noise texturing, but this ‘wall’s feels so much more meaty, punishing & brutally malevolent .  Also my attention was fixed complete through-out it’s whole half an hour play time, and my mind never wondered once (un-like the first sides track). Once again the track feels fairly fixed in it’s attack, though at times it does feel like it’s slowing & ranging more into it’s self as the track progresses, but this could all just be a trick of the ‘wall’. In the last ten or so minutes Nascitari pulls back the ‘walls’ ranging storm  slightly to a more atmospheric mix of receding rumbling & slowing jittering/ billow- most effective!

So to sum-up this is very much a game of two half’s; with Carrion Black Pit offering up a pummelling if bland slice of wall-making, and Nascitari a battering, bleak & effective slab of HNW.
