Whore's Breath - (For your safety) Take a seat [Stemms Audio - 2022]

(For your safety) Take A Seat is a new two-track release from this Cincinnati, Ohio walled noise project. With the theme being an accident witnessed on the metro, where someone got badly hurt for standing. The two ‘walls’ are suitable churning, and droningly grinding in their attack- with a rather blunt industrial feel to the tones.

The release is a digital self-release- with the cover featuring a monochrome photo of an old steel-edged wooden chair part in stark shadow.  And if you’d like to check it out for yourself, drop by here

The first track here is the spot on twenty-five minutes of “Hard Stop”. This starts out with a mixture of blunt low-end motor drone/ rumble ‘n’ purr, and fixed skittering static grain. The low end has a nice feeling of grinding shadowiness, and the skittering is nicely crude and bone drilling searing.  As we progress the low end seems to get more drilling ‘n’ droning, while the static topping has a more a rattling chug to its attack.  With the whole thing having a thick chugging and roughly bucking presence.

Track number two is the twenty-nine minutes fifteen of “Face meet handrail, handrail meet face”. Here we find a deeper and rawer droning low end, this is surrounded by thinner constantly snapping-to-pelleting grained tones. The whole ‘wall’ has a nicely crude, and pressing on your temples weight about it. As the track progresses the low end feels more boring, and the grain slight more mixed up and uneven- though I’m guess much of this is a trick of the wall.  This ‘wall’ is ok, though I just wish maybe it had been a tad shorter- as I found my attention drifting a little in its last quarter.

(For your Safety) Take A Seat features two flesh tearing and bone grinding examples of wall craft- and the theme it’s is neat enough too. I wanted to give this a two and a half score, but as we don’t do half’s….I’ve given it a two.
