Necrotik Fissure - Eerie Lurking On The Sensors [Reason Art Records - 2016]

Eerie Lurking On The Sensors is a C90 from late 2016, and it features two side long slices of seared, extremely thick, and multi-layered walled noise themed around doomed astronauts trapped out in space.

The release appears on Russians Reason Art label- the clear shelled & colored labeled cassette comes in a single sided color sleeve. This takes in a murky picture from inside a space shuttle looking out into space. The release came in an edition of 10 copies, and as of writing the label still, has copies left.

Necrotik Fissure is a Hungary based HNW/ Harsh Noise project that originally started in 2012, had a four-year break- then came back in 2016 to release a fair few new releases- taking in both splits, stand-alone releases, and multiple disc sets- since it’s come back I believe the project has focused purely on HNW.

The sound on both sides of tape here is very, very densely layered, unrelenting, yet layered detailed in its presentation. I guess you’d say the dense-yet- detailed feel of the sound is similar to some one like US project The Ebony Tower- though Necrotik Fissure does certainly have their own take on this type of sound.  It’s a sound that needs both patient & concentration to full enjoy what’s on offer here- but if you’re willing to give these both tracks the effort & time needed they are most appealing.

So first up on side A we have "Eerie Lurking On The Sensors I". This ‘wall’ brings together the following elements: a mesh of rattling ‘n’ constantly shaking static crispness, a descending ‘n’ chugging stream bound like texturing, and a selection of similar toned ‘n’ unrelenting mid-ranged snapping staple like showers.  All these elements are weaved into a tight & airless wall of devastation- which is both totally overwhelming- yet- nicely nuanced in its layer separation & detail.  So the ‘wall’  nicely blocks out the sonic world around oneself, but also offers up worthy textural detail & layer paths for ones mind to follow.

Flipping over to side B, and we have "Eerie Lurking On The Sensors II". And once again it’s a very dense affair, though there are hint’s here of the bleak, eerier & doomed fate of the astronauts. The ‘wall’ sees the following elements brought together- a mesh of rattling-yet- semi dragging crispiness( which at times blurs & hazes at the edges), a muffled & slurred aquatic like descending, and a selection snapping ‘n’ chugging sub-tones. The track constantly feels like it’s going to suddenly slow & cut-out, yet it never does. Once again each layer is fairly set & fixed in its feel, yet due to the well-balanced layer mix, it often feels like there is seemingly impossible mix of feasting rush & bleak awkward-ness.


As far as I recall this is the first release I’ve heard from this project, and I must say I was pleasantly surprised by both the quality & the depth of both sides of the tape. Added to this the theme of the release is fairly original & distinctively too.
