Dead Body Collection/Faggot Front - From Destruction Comes Rebirth Vol 4 [Forever Escaping Boredom - 2013]

“From Destruction Comes Rebirth”  is series of 3inc CDR’s put out by Florida based noise/ experimental label Forever Escaping Boredom. Each release in the series brings together two noise/experimental projects who each present an around ten minute track a piece-  this forth volume brings together one intense & pounding wall noise track, and one searing slice of harsh noise.

Each release in this series comes with identical artwork(save for the texts). And this consists of double sided black and white artwork, that takes in overlaid pictures of an apocalyptic city scape, & what looks like some sort of ground plans or map.

First up we have a track from the highly prolific Serbia based Dead Body Collection, who has released around 100 releases since it started in 2009. The track on offer here is entitled “My Birth Was The First Act Of My Self-Destruction”, and it comes in at spot on the ten minute mark. The track is built around a huge sounding meaty & juddering bass tone, which is surrounded by a few more thinner static bound jittering & judder tones that are following the churning pattern of the main element. To me the track very much brought to mind been slowly run over again & again by a army tank- the ‘wall’ has a very effective fixed industrial like feel to it, and the longer it goes on the more intense & pressing it seem  to get as the tones mush together into a brutal churning grey & hopeless sound soup.  It’s a fairly simply constructed bit of ‘wall-making’, but it’s most effective & enchanting in it’s unfold.

Second up we have a track from Faggot Front – which is one of projects of Rochelle, New York based Dom C (also of ghost/ horror themed HNW project Willows, & ANW/HNW project The Structure). Faggot Front started out as a brutal HNW project, but the track on this release shifts more towards searing Harsh Noise. The track on offer here is entitled “Rent Boi”, and comes in at the 9.32 mark. It’s a shifting mixture of: sustained higher pitched dwells, roaring ‘n’ forking mid-range textural storms, almost wall-ish descending judders, and rapid ‘n’ bleak overloaded synth scaping. It’s a competent, shifting & well enough executed slice of harsh noise, I enjoy the more wall-ish traits here, but on the whole I find the track too shifting ‘n’ rapid…but of course I’m not really a big fan of Harsh noise.

To sum up this forth volume of  “From Destruction Comes Rebirth”-  I very much enjoyed the first track, but only really enjoyed elements of the second. That said if you’re a fan of both HNW & Harsh noise this well worth a look.
