A Lizard In A Woman’s Skin - Durer Murder [Corpse-Grained Series - 2014]

A Lizard in a Woman's Skin is one of the less prolific projects of Texas based HNW legend Richard Ramirez- this mini CDR is only the 5th release from the project since it started in 2010.  The project focuses in on giallo themed dense  HNW/ boiling static texturing, and it takes it’s name  from 1971 Italian giallo movie of the same name which was by directed by infamous gore director Lucio Fulci .

The release is put out by Corpse-Grained Series, which is  one of  HNW/Static noise label’s of the highly prolific Paris based walled noise/harsh noise maker Julien Skrobek( of Butch Bag, Static Park, Sadistic Fall, Flesh Clocks,The Killer Came From The Bronx, Ghost, The Sandman Wears A Mask, Ruine).  Each of the releases put out on this label come in the form of a 3inc CDR- these appear in a over sized envelope packaging, which feature stuck on front & back artwork, inlay card & separate plastic slip sleeve.

This release comes in black envelope, & features a stuck on black & white movie still(from a giallo film, I’m guessing), of a standing women covering her naked frame in a mirror while a man looks on.

The 3inc CDR takes in a single self titled track- this comes in just under the eighteen minute mark. It’s all centred around a slightly muffled yet extremely dense ‘n’ thick meeting of several amassed bass bound rumbling & billowing tones- these mostly focus in on this intense yet brooding textural meld. But from time to time Ramirez breaks off from the fixed & breathless pummelling, for some rewarding textural side road’s or deviations with-in the ‘walls’ flow.  As one would expect with a ‘wall’ artist of this calibre, the track is  brutally compelling yet cleverly conceived.  I really like the way  Ramirez mangers to keep the tension though-out, but also mangers to move through some creative textural shifts, with-out losing the impact of the whole thing.

So in summing Durer Murder is another worthy addition to the Corpse-Grained Series, and a great & rewarding slice of giallo themed static noise from one of the scenes masters of the form.
