Bördel Noïr & Placenta Lyposuction - Annihilation [Ominous Recordings - 2020]

Annihilation is a brutal earth churning ‘n’ fire roasting slice of walled noise. The collaborative seventy five minute track brings together western Frances Bördel Noïr, and Croatia based Placenta Lyposuction- both project are sadly now  no more, but this stands a nice statement of their joint intensity, and the blending of their own individual takes on wall-craft.

This recent release appeared on Sweden’s Ominous Recordings- as either a CDR, or digital download. The physical version of the release appears in form of CDR with a black paint washed face- this comes presented in a DVD case. It features red & black colour scheme, which takes in inversed pictures of skull- there’s also a black inlay card- this details the tracks recording history, with the Placenta Lyposuction layer of the track been made in 2010/ 2011, and the Bördel Noïr layer been made in 2019- with the whole thing been mixed down that same year. At present the label has a few copies left- but I’d act fast!.

The single track here rolls in at seventy five minutes, and thirty two seconds mark. And it’s a very full & brutally searing example of the HNW form- it’s built around a wide and churning  noise bass drone, which is surrounded by constantly rattling and snapping texturing. In my mind when I play the ‘wall’ I’m getting images of huge & aged combine harvester's raking  their  way through massive piles of human bones & skulls, which are both smouldering & lightly flaming. The ‘wall’ remains very dense through-out with certainly the bass drone been fairly fixed & grinding in it’s attack( though in the last quarter it does feel more muddy)- the top layer sounds like it may have a little shift in it, as from time-to-time we get a few of pattern deviations. On the whole it feels like a decidedly old school take on the HNW form-  with a very thick & pummelling intent set deep into the ‘walls’ structure & intent.

In conculsion Annihilation is an example of no-nonsense, old school, and fairly textural simplistic wall craft. I’d say this will mostly certainly please long term wall-heads, who miss truly unrelenting & hope battering HNW, with a grim theme.
