Nascitari/Vasectomy Party - Split [Forever Escaping Boredom - 2012]

This split release from last year brings together tracks from Italian suicidal walled noise project Nascitari, and Florida based HNW/Harsh noise project  Vasectomy Party. The release comes in two different editions: a seven inch lathe cut vinyl that featured two tracks- one from each project, and a CDR that features extended versions of the tracks from the 7 inch, plus an extra Vasectomy Party track. I’m reviewing here the CDR version of the release.

The CDR comes in the lathe cover- this features an effective fold out mini poster effect that takes in a mass of over sized flies at the bottom of the artwork and framed picture of a skeleton in the grave at the top, both the  images over lap each other to create a grim yet slightly surreal fold out mini poster. Like most things put out on Forever Escaping Boredom this has a pro printed colour cover.

First up we have the untitled Nascitari track, and this comes in at just shy of the twenty one minute mark. The track opens with a slowed textural churn of rolling, muffled & earthy sort of dense crackle that has a separate smaller 'n' thiner textural glitch appearing ever so often. Around the minute & a half mark a more rapid yet still fairly muffled & organic sounding rumble/slight buffeting/ static jittering mix takes hold, and the tracks starts to become a little more urgent in it’s feel, yet there’s still a very hazed earth churning feel to the track. The rest of the track stays fairly fixed in it’s textural make-up, but the elements seem a first get more rapid & agitated, then later they start to haze & muffle around the edges in a most effective manner. I guess you’d say this track sits between HNW & ANW, and I must say it’s a most satisfying track that finds Nascitari creating  a wonderfully grimly smothering yet entrancing bit of wall-making.


Next we have Vasectomy Party’s track “March Of The Cicadas”, this come in at just over the ten minute mark.  The tracks a lot more taut/ brutally lo-fi compared to the smothering earthiness of the Nascitari track- the ‘wall’ built around a locked down rapid billowing tone that’s weaved over by a thinner layered colder yet uniformed mat of static jitter. Again this track is most effective, and acts as a nice colder & taut walled counterpart to the Nascitari track.

Lastly we have the second Vasectomy Party’s track, and this is entitled “No Vacation”, and it comes in at just under the twelve minute mark. This track offers up a thicker & more impenetrable  ‘wall’ than the first track, but like the first track it’s rapid & unforgiving too. The ‘walls’ built around a dense & similar sounding set of low to mid ranged noise tones- there a mixture of juddering, billowing & roasting textures that meet to create this searing & engulfing mass of sound.  Again the tracks effective, though I’d say this is my least favourite ‘wall’ here as it does lack the more distinctive/ entrancing feel of the other two tracks.

To sum up this is a nicely presented split release with both parties offering up worthy slices of walled noise, I’d say if you were going to pick this up go for the CDR version as you get a longer version of both tracks, and of course the extra Vasectomy Party track too.
