Vomir/Shumoizolyatsia - Split [Void Singularity Recordings - 2018]

Here’s a walled noise split that brings together two twenty-five to thirty-minute examples of dense & crushing HNW. The release brings together French wall noise legend Vomir, with Russia based Shumoizolyatsia (Noise insulation) - it’s presented in the form of a pro-pressed CDR, on British wall noise label Void Singularity Recordings.

The pro pressed/ labelled CD comes in a DVD case- taking in black & white artwork, this features on its front cover what looks like inversed & blurred picture of fish swimming. On the back cover, we get white handwritten text against a plain black backdrop- this is the labels first attempt at doing more pro job on the release packaging after more PC printed lo-fi presentation in the past- so it’s always nice to see labels progressing.

So first up we have the Vomir track- this is as usual from this act, the track is untitled. As we’ve come to expect from the project the ‘wall’ here is extremely thick, densely crude & Unforgiven- it’s built around a constantly shredding mixture of sloshing sears, cascading-to-choppy lashers, contained & compressed buffing. Around the key elements are these odd nodding & darting vibe tones deep, deep down in the tracks guts- you can never fully chart or define these elements- as they are buried to the point of unrecognisable. So much so, as when I first heard this track I wondered if I’d left on some looped ad in the background as I listen to it on my PC- but no it’s most certainly there, and adds a fairly unique edge to a Vomir track that I’ve not heard before.

Next, of course, we have the Shumoizolyatsia track- this once again is untitled, and is the longer of the two tracks at a few seconds shy of the twenty-nine-minute mark. After the maelstrom like rush of the Vomir track- this is a little more defined, though no less dense & brutal in it’s attack. The ‘wall’ sees a mixture of a galloping low end, skittering mid ranged grain, and this looped slurred knock & roll texture- together these create an extremely crush slice of wall matter, with the blend of textures nicely keeping you focused through-out the tracks runtime.

This is certainly a most crushing & brutally dense wall noise split- bringing together the thick maelstrom of the Vomir track, with the dense grinding & galloping darkness of the Shumoizolyatsia. As of this writing, the label still has a few copies left of the CDR- and I’d say this release will most certainly be of interest to Vomir fans, or those looking for unforgiving walled noise.
