Dosis Letalis - Texture Hunter [Void Singularity Recordings - 2019]

Texture Hunter is an hour long example of densely layered walled noise from Serbian project Dosis Letalis. The release appeared in April of this year, as either a pro-pressed CDR in a DVD case or a digital download- the CDR went out-of-print fairly fast, so ones only option now is a download.

The self-titled track comes in at nineteen seconds over the hour mark- and fitting its title the ‘wall’ is very densely packed with layers of textures. The ‘wall’ sees the following elements brought & blended together- a loose slightly cascading rumble, sweeps of smaller snaps & pop, spiraling scrap-to-clutter, and slight off pattern knocks. The whole thing is nicely balanced in its production & layering- so you can clearly hear every pattern, and at times the ‘wall’ creates worthy & imagined shifts in its mass.

There’s no doubt about it Dosis Letalis is one of the more active & respected wall noise projects in the scene at present. With the projects wall-noise craft moving from dense & thickly packed, onto paired back & sparse, through to creative & quirky textures blend. With Texture Hunter, the focus is very much on creating a dense as possible ‘wall craft, that pins you down- then batters at you with its many layers of sound. In its world blocking & overwhelming attack, the track certainly succeeds- but sadly, for the most part, the textures utilized here feel a little predictable & uninspired- so as to result I’ve found my attention wondering somewhat on my plays through.

I was expecting, and wanting to enjoy Texture Hunter more than I did- which is a pity. Don’t get me wrong the whole thing is executed with the projects normal skill & balance; it’s just the textures themselves- which you’d expect to be creative & unique with a title like Texture Hunter…so as  result I’ve given this a fairly low two score- though as with all things wall noise it’s very much down to personal taste, so you could well get more out of this than I did.
