Vomir/Ataraxy - Split [Victimology Records - 2013]

This split CDR brings together two respected & veteran European walled noise acts. With each act offers up a slice of dense & unrelenting walled noise that hits in around the thirty minute mark.

Opening up the release we have a track from one of the most known, respected & uncompromising names in the world wide HNW scene- Vomir - the French black bag wearing master of the form. The Untitled track on offer here comes in at the mark 28.16, and the ‘walls’ is built around a dense ‘n’ unforgiving mix of rapidly chugging & jittering noise.  And weaved through the main tones you get waves of muffled mid-range cluttering ‘n’ raging tone descents.  To me the track rather brought to mind the image of four or five streaming trains, pushed up to their top speed racing along  side each other as a battering cross wind  buffets & rocks them. All told this tracks a nice intense, unmoving & urgent bit of walled noise.


The other track comes from German based Ataraxy- this project has been active since summer 2009, releasing a steady flow of releases that either sit in the HNW or harsh noise camps, or  a mix of the two forms together. The track on offer here is entitled  “Deep Sleep”, and it comes in at the 30.29 mark.  It's sequenced directly in from the first track, and is built around a mix of rapid ‘n’ billowing low end juddering that’s ribbed by rushing & cluttering static sub tones- the billowing and urgent low-end tones are a nice contrast to rushing & cluttering tones, and together they create a dense & unmoving slice of urgent walled noise.  The textures here are a bit more clean & less crude than those of the Vomir track, so it works as nice wide awake battering after to the brutal yet hazed brutalizing of the first track.


This split offers up two uncompromising, unmoving, yet rewarding slices of intense euro HNW- so if your after thick, impenetrable and no-nonsense walled noise this is well worth a look.
