Dead Body Collection offers up a short five minute slab of harsh wall noise terror, providing a crunchy static drone that remains fairly constant throughout its run. If you dig wall noise, there’s a lot to love in this outing. A deep tone provides the base (or bass?) for the track while higher-pitched tendrils of static wisps come and go in the background. It’s easy to get lost in, and it ends just as it begins. I would comment and say that the short length of the track is both a high point and a hindrance. For sure, the wall never feels tedious because it’s over so fast, and it’s easy to jump into if you’ve only got a few minutes to spare. But the length also takes away from the mesmerizing power of the repetition, and there’s also not much time to subtly shift the wall into another element of fuzz, which I feel is an important aspect of wall noise. Yet She Was a Whore Anyway delivers a quick foray into Dead Body Collection’s brand of HNW, and this quick cut leaves me wanting more fromthe artist.
