This release finds DBC focusing in on the homicide /serial killer side of his work for it's theme, instead of his deranged and perverse medical obsessions. The simple, but effective photo-copied artwork features a picture of a hand holding a knife on the front cover, and on the back theres a picture of a dark and dingy alleyway where you can imagine a dismembered killers victim been found. Also inside the sleeve is a page of quite well mocked up newspaper reports that make out that DBC is wanted and depraved killer.
The track on offer here is entitled “Day Of The Maniac” and it finds DBC unfolding an very violent and unforgiving fast paced ‘wall’ of battering ‘n’ crusty bass judder for just under 80 punishing minutes. Try to imagine what it might sound like to be stuck in-side a vast industrial dryer or washing machine on full spin, and you get some idea of what this track sounds like from beginning to end. It never gives up, slows down or varies- it just batters and batters at you in a pleasingly simple yet violent manner.
So if you’re after no-nonsense, unrelenting, brutal and deeply punishing Harsh noise wall “A place to kill” will certainly hit the spot. Another unflinchingly brutal work from this highly prolific act.
