Vomir - Vomir [ShchYL-Records - 2019]

From the infamous & notoriously unforgiving French wall noise project here’s a C90 release- serving up two sides of crude, blunt, and terminal battering HNW. The release appears on Ukraine ShchYL-Records-  having a fairly scene reasonably edition of 31 copies.

The shop brought cassette features monochrome labels on both sides- these take in crude college work- this is followed on with the sleeves cover, with the reverses featuring just black & white static. All in all, a fairly typical looking underground noise tape.

There’s basically just a single untitled track here-that runs from side A to B, so you get just shy of an hour & a half of HNW. And really it’s extremely typical, and rather predictable example of Vomir’s craft- the ‘wall’ is made of thick & fairly layered blurred selection of sludgy bound drone, constant chopping judder, and crude static rattle. These elements are fed out in a total unchanging & unmoving flow of very thick sound- unfortunately, due to the extremely dull production, and lack of layer definition- the whole thing comes across as a blunt/ shapeless mesh. Sure it’s certainly very nihilistic in its feel, but I’m afraid to say it just felt like the Frenchman was on autopilot- not really putting in any care to craft his 'wall'- so instead we just get an almost churning & shapeless white-out.

As long-time readers of M[m] will know I/ we have a lot of time for Vomir, but with this release I really feel he’s dropped the ball- putting out just a rather bland & unappealing example of wall matter. If he was trying to create the ultimate example of sonic nihilistic, he’s certainly done that- but as a result he’s made a terminal dull, uninspired, and frankly very attention testing example of this most extreme of genres.
