RRR - Border Of Nowhere [Ominous Recordings - 2016]

Border Of Nowhere  is a C40 tape offering up two sides of taut, caustic, and oppressive wall-craft from French HNW project RRR.  The release appeared in both physical & digital form- with tape getting at pressing of 20 copies, of which some are still available at present.

RRR is the noise project of Sébastien Bach, who also runs RRRecords & it’s sub-label Porn Noise Records. The project has been active since 2004, starting off as more of a harsh noise/ PE venture, but in recent years gone wholly over to HNW. The two tracks offered up here are fairly typical(though yet not less worthy) of the projects recent out-put, with tight & painful blend of set & seared noise layers.

The tracks are simply split into Border Of Nowhere Prt I & Prt II. So first up on side A we have “Prt I”- this ‘wall’ is a blend of thickly looped yet pacey judder based noise, which is weaved with smaller jittering & snapping sub tones- these seem to bay & simmer around the central roast.

Flipping over to side B, and we of course have “Prt II”. And this really seem fairly close( or the same) in layer blend & weave to the first side. Bringing together fixed judder based churn- which is both rapid & unforgiving. This is sewn by a selection of smaller tones that take rattling, snapping & jitter based patterns. Maybe the judder is slightly lower ranged & a bit more crude in it’s feel, and the smaller elements are slightly loser & less uniformed- but I’m not sure if this is just my imagination, and this is pretty much the same track again.

I’d say RRR sits  in the crude, straight-forward, and more focused side of the walled noise genre. And while Border Of Nowhere  is  hardly something a seasoned wall-head won’t have heard before,  RRR does add his own twist to form, & both sides of tape keep you brutally held though-out.
