Sado Rituals/Placenta Lyposuction - Echoes of Genocide [Gates Of Hypnos - 2021]

Echoes of Genocide is grimly scrubbing–to-bleakly baying wall noise split, which brings together tow forty-minute examples of ‘wall’ craft. The split appeared  in early February 2021- coming as a digital download on Polish based label Gates Of Hypnos.

The release's cover artwork features a monochrome photo of  two skulls and a bone sticking out of a mound of earth, and this simply but effectively fits both the releases title & the feel of the sonics with-in. If you want to check it out or download it head here.

The release brings together Polish walled noise/ dark drone project Sado Rituals- who has been active since 2019- putting out a fairly impressive nearing eighty releases thus far. And Croatia based Placenta Lyposuction who has been active on & off since 2009.


First up we have the Sado Rituals track, and this is bleakly entitled “Ultimate death and decay of syphilitic post-society”- it slides in at just over the forty-one-minute mark. The ‘wall’ is built around a morbidly muffled droning, which is encased by a blend of dusty judder, murky rattle, and distantly bleak billowing.  The 'wall' retains a largely set focus, with some slight play in each of the textures. The whole thing feels akin to watching a group aged & lumbering tanks slowly ploughing through a long-past battleground, with all manner of bones & skulls surfacing to be crushed to rank dust. For the most part, the track kept me held, though in a few places my concentration did wane- thankfully I was sucked back in fairly soon

Next up we, of course, have the Placenta Lyposuction track- this is simply entitled “ Requiem”, and it rolls in at the slightly longer forty four-minute mark. The ‘wall’ here is somewhat more sluggish & even more muffled- been built around a slightly cluttering & muddy low end, pick digging hack, and dust hazed rattle. If the first track was a mid-pace churn through stripped bone & dusty battlefield- this is more of a bumpy drudge, with the great clouds of both ground bone & musty soil hovering around.  Of the two tracks- this is most successful, as the layers mix & their selection are well realized to create grimly crushing & enchasing wall, which keeps you fully held though-out.

In conclusion Echoes of Genocide is a worthy split- with both of the ‘walls’ nicely portraying a feeling of stark brutality. For me the second track is the standout, but the first is rewarding enough & I’ll certainly check out some more of Sado Rituals, as there is both some skill/ promise here.
