Pig Shrapnel - Boar'd To Death [Busey Teeth - 2018]

Boar’d To Death is the latest selection of pork-bound brutality from this based Florida walled-noise project, who themes all their releases around pigs. And this time around the specific theme is Boar attacks- with the garish cover artwork taking in the attack, aftermath & close-up pictures of Boar tusks!

This release appears in the shape of a CDR- and presents up three slices of seared wall-matter, with each of these falling between the twelve & thirteen-minute mark.  First, out of the (pig) barn door is “Boar Angry”- this is rather lose 'n' raging blend of galloping & gulping judder, that’s lashed 'n' bayed by a shifting map of rattles, sears, and bays. The tracks just ok, as I found a little too ill-defined & sloppy in its structure. So as a result nothing really hooked me in- sure it’s brutal, and it does bring to mind an unstoppable boar mulling- it just didn’t grab me.

Track two is entitled “I am The Ultimate Omnivore”- and this offers up a much more effective, unformed, and distinctive wall. We get a blend of sustained rushing static sear, rolling drone-bound tautness, and a few rattling & billowing sub tones.  Together these create a most satisfying mix of ear hissing urgency, musty drone atmospherics, and rewardingly skittering sub-tone detail.  This is my favorite of the three tracks here- and I could have easily listened to this wall for double it's run-time.


Lastly up we have “Severely Lacerated By Razor Sharp Tusks”- here we get a central slightly buffeting tunnel like drone, which is wrapped in a mesh of smaller jitter & snapping textures. As the track progresses the smaller elements get more raging & seared, though they never fully knock the whole things structure out of tilt.  This ‘wall’ is satisfying enough in its blend of subterranean droning, and rapid/ skittering texturing. At least it has a fairly firm shape, and while the textures are  not too original- as a whole it sucks you in & keeps you held in for a worth enough savaging wall-attack.

Personally, I felt Boar’d To Death was a rather mixed selection of porky-bound walls, with prime cuts like the second track, sitting alongside the less impressive & sloppy cuts like the first wall. It’s certainly not my favorite from the project- but the second track makes it worthy of enter, and the third track pleases well enough.
