This double disc set released under the Serbian harsh noise wall label Suprematist Records explores two Serbian harsh noise wall artists. Gigant approaching with minimalist noise wall and unmoving blasting static from Dead Body Collection. The first disc is Dead Body Collection beginning his track with a slight fade in and immediately builds up into a harsh unmoving texture sounding ripped and torn apart by a mid-paced barrage of white noise. This slow and unmoving piece is distinguishable from previous works not only because of the fade in, but also because it is a slightly distinctive texture from other works I’ve heard from this artist. With a muddy sputtering quality it grinds away for a full 79 minutes nearly reaching the maximum capacity of the disc. Moving over to the second disc is Gigant’s highly disciplined 74 minute unmoving static growl. The approach here is entirely minimalistic and extreme bass like texture compliments the lack of dynamic to a point where this static statement stands on its own without need for textural shifts or voluminous increases. The packaging itself is incredibly beautiful as it is printed on a semi transparent white paper similar to rice paper with minimalist influenced artwork. The contrast of clear and see through white with slim black lines and b/w text makes a less is more appeal and by far stands out as some of the best packaging I’ve seen for a HNW release this year.
