Nar/Hearse Fetish - Split [Self Release - 2014]

This C40 split brings together two twenty minute slices of pummelling & dense HNW from these two US wall noise act’s- on the first side we have a track from the mysterious, airless & punishing Nar project. And on the second side we have a track from the searing & often industrialized tinged Maryland based project Hearsh Fetish.

So starting off the release we have Nar’s “Xeroxed Obsession”. And this ‘wall’ starts out with this sustained rushing/ billowing drone- it’s such a extreme & searing opening you almost jerk away from your stereo speakers, or throw off your head-phones. Fairly soon we start shifting between this locked down machine like churning low end textural mesh(which ever so often is edged caustically edge  rapid billows), the sustained rushing drone from the start, and a mix of both of these element.  The rest of the tracks structure sort of swings back & forth between these three textural settings, and all in all it’s an eventful yet very intense ride. 


So fliping over to side two, we have Hearse Fetish’s “Skin-Grafted Home (Eternally Occupied)” which brings together a dense matt of churning ‘n’ juddering lower-to-mid  ranged noise, which edged by a  higher pitched jittering pattern. Both elements remain fixed & firm through-out, though they do seem to blur & merge into each other more & more creating a searing, urgently,yet suffocating feeling.  I’d say the tracks a fairly effective example of this type of wall-making, and maybe a little less industrial sounding than some of this projects other work.

So this split brings together two very unforgiving slabs of US walled noise- I’d say the Nar track is my favourite of the two as it’s so extreme yet jarring in it’s attack & seared yet rewarding textural shifts. The Hearse Fetish track is ok, but it’s a bit more safe after the jarring overload that is the Nar track.
