I watched You Die/Nascitari - Split [Breaching Static - 2013]

This split CDR features two slices of intense & morbidly themed walled noise, and it brings together two projects-one USA project & one Italian project, with each project offering up a twenty minutes of dense & pummelling HNW attack.

The split brings togeather USA based I watched You Die, which is one of the projects of Dubuque Iowa based noise  artists Alex Nowacki( Boar,Centeries Behind The Gate & Phantom Rib). And from Italian  based Nascitari, which is one of the projects of Lorenzo Abbà( of Tomorrow I'll Shoot Myself in the Mouth  & Claustrophilia Records).

The plain CDR comes in a black crape paper cd slip sleeve that features a pasted on picture of  bleak ‘n’ blurred  picture of a single dark building set against a grey horizon .

So first up we have the I watched You Die track, and this is entitled “In Your Eyes I See Panic”. The ‘wall’ on offer here is of the brutal, roasting & taut kind, and it’s built around a tense ‘n’ thick bass rumble that is played over by a taut line of jittering, crackling & juddering static patterning. The pace here is around the mid to rapid, and Nowacki keeps the whole thing fair fixed with just a little play in the thinner static tones- but the bass drone stays thick, deadly & fixed through out. All told this is a simplistic if very effective slice of intense & pressing walled noise, that’s up there with the high quality of this project other work.

Next of course we have the Nascitari track , and this is entitled “ Suicidal Sculpture”. And this ‘wall’ starts off a little more active than the first ‘wall’, to begin with we get a lo-fi 'n' fixed rolling line of semi juddering static grained noise, around this are a selection of stoping 'n' starting roller like mechanical rumbles & knocks-this all givings one the feeling of some grimly nocturnal, musty soaked, old & decay factory that has suddenly come to life. At the four minute mark it briefly thins down to a single roast flame tone, before it kicks back into dense wall territory. From this point on the ‘wall’ is a fairly fixed & unrelenting sonic construction that is built around three or four layers of noise- we have: A meaty ‘n’ darkly churning bass bound texture, A thinner jittering fixed texture, and weaves of billowing ‘n’ juddering noise- these all lock together to create a most intense & nasty mass of entrancing walled noise matter.

This split offers up a nicely dark & brutal pairing of thick ‘n’ unrelenting walled  noise tracks by this two scene pros- so if your into no-nonsense, mostly fixed & intense walled noise this is well worth checking out.
