White Gimp Mask is a cool harsh noise wall project from Houston, Texas and the first thing I realized is that WGM made quite impressive discography so far.
However, I searched over the web for proper biography, but I was out of luck. ”My Grandfather, The Hoarder”, is great 16 minutes long composition full of blistering distortion, almost sounding like a drill pump connected to the tons of distortion pedals. The track gives you constant feeling of the vertigo of hollow and unpleasant noise circling around your head, but on the other hand gives you another impression of standing on the field full of static objects.
Dead Body Collection is on the other side of this split release and this act is based in Belgrade, Serbia. Dr. Alex is standing behind this project and
he is also involved in a work of Creation Through Destruction, harsh noise project and Victimology Records. DBC appeared with 20 minutes track called Rues Sanglantes (Bloody Streets) and it is full of static distortion ready to explode every minute as the track is passing by. This track will melt your brain and crack you head piece by piece, leaving nothing behind. Well executed composition, unpleasant and hard to listen on the headphones, but very useful for tearing some walls apart. I’m pretty sure, that was the Dr. Alex’s intent.
Cover artwork consists of two separated front pages for each performer. On the White Gimp Mask’s part of the cover, you may find a photo of a big pile of some used stuff, located in some room or warehouse. Dead Body Collection’s cover is also made of some photo with laying corpse covered in blood, all coloured in black and red tones. This release also comes with small insert printed with black ink on the white paper and it contains tracklist, lenght of the tracks and some links. CD is released in the spirit of DIY.
