Dosis Letalis/Planet Shithead - Split [Busey Teeth - 2018]

This is particularly searing & ultra-intense HNW split- which brings together Serbian based Dosis Letalis, with US-based Planet Shithead. The release presents the listener with two thirty minute seas of sear, and really there is zero let-up and zero relief through-out.

Here we have a CDR on Busey Teeth- the Florida based label that puts out all manner of extreme sonic fare from HNW, harsh noise, drone, death industrial, power electronics, grindcore, raw black metal, noisecore. The disc comes in a DVD case and takes in a color sleeve- featuring a woman in a snuggie with bright white glowing eyes, and the track listing layout in large balky text against a static hazing backdrop. This physical release comes in an edition of twenty copies, though there is also a digital download too.

First up we have an Untitled track from Dosis Letalis- this Serbian projects work really falls into two camps- the more experimental, creative, and sometimes ANW focused work. And all out no-nonsense & simple wall-noise nastiness- and for this track, we very much fits in the second category. The track  kicks straight in with a deep bone grinding billow- this is surrounded by jittering & juddering sub-tones, which both nicely enhance the feeling of ferocity & face roasting intensity.  The ‘walls’ central billow stays fairly firm in its brutally bothersome sear, with the sub-tones adjust slightly from time-to-time;  though these are minimal. This ‘wall’ is akin to putting ones face into a tunnel of fierce & unrelenting flame, and leaving it there. Sure it’s simple & un-fancy in its make-up, but if you really want to escape the world around you for a time- this type of wall-making is perfect. And here Dosis Letalis does it with  real roasting bass-bound intensity, that rivals his wall noise countryman- the sadly now no more Dead Body Collection.

Next up we, of course, have the Planet Shithead track, and this is entitled “Snuggie Fetish”- which of course links into the cover artwork. And after the truly unforgiving attack of the first track- this locks you down into another half an hour of dense, thick & searing noise matter. The ‘wall’ begins with a blend of faint & choppy almost synth-like watery noise churn, on top of this is a hissing & white hot layer of rapidly feasting static. As the track progresses we get a some shift & deviation in the flow of the top layer, with the occasional higher pitcher sear appearing- but the watery churn, aside from some subtle speed shifts, seems to stay the same. Where the first track felt very fire & flame bound, this wall feels more water based- akin to been held under battering rush & sting of a vast waterfall.

This split is certainly for those looking for a full, nasty, and fairly old-school take on the wall-noise form. And is really perfect for those times when you want to fully check–out of the twisting & pressing weight of everyday life, and get lost in the searing roast of HNW.
