Review for Dead Body Collection - Mental Martyrdom from Roger Batty

Mental Martyrdom offers up a sixty minute slice of urgent, manically swirling & intense walled noise from this long running & highly prolific Siberian based HNW project.
This release appeared way back in 2013 in CDR & digital format, and our copy has recently reappeared at M[m] HQ after a sort-out/ clear-up. And as it’s still available in digital format ( via DBC’s bandcamp)- I thought it was worthy of  a review.

The single track is built around a bothersome & brutal machine like bass judder- this is tautly wrapped by layers of buffeting, battering, and billowing sub-tones. The whole thing brings to mind been endless churned round & round inside a vast & aged industrial wash machine, or dryer. The bass juddering is satisfyingly brutalizing in it’s endless raging mass, while the sub-tones create a entrancing yet intense continual spiral.

With this release DBC mangers to create an intense & endless ranging vortex like storm of a ‘wall that mangers to suck you in while creating a great feeling of taut intensity. As this release dates back to 2013, I’m afraid it’s very unlikely you’ll be able to source a physical copy of the cdr, but it’s still available as digital download- so head over to here to get hold of a copy.
