Gorenoise, obviously, won’t be to everyone’s taste, and it’s probably for the best. I, for one, find it interesting to explore and some stuff coming from the deepest sewers filled with the pathological waste and every malformation you can think of is just simply outstanding. And because I took it upon myself to bring to your consciousness the existence of as many releases as I humanly can (and that’s is debatable straight away, lol) I will go on with reviewing stuff I’ve bought from a new label in Italy called Sialorrhoea Production (and I’ve already reviewed two releases, Anemia’s “Congenital dyserythropoietic anemia” and “Extreme Demolition” by Concrete Eater), more precisely, their initial release output. So, witout any further delays, let’s see what’s on offer for today.
Believe it or not, it’s Red Pulp Cords and the compilation of stuff from 2018 and 2019 and it brings together all the material from this Italian gorenoise act. Altogether almost 16 minutes of good ole gorenoise, but what a gorenoise it is!!!
Now, if you’re asking yourself – what the heck is Red Pulp Cords, you are not alone (as Michael Jackson has used to sing). I have no idea who’s behind this project, but as you can expect, I need to crack this mystery open very soon. Why? It’s easy, because…alright, stop.
Not to get ahead too soon, shall we? The first track is “Grey Matter” from the 2019 demo “Modest exposition of grey matter” and it’s nothing short of fantastic (don’t forget though, we’re talking in gorenoise here). Unlike “usual” strain of gorenoise I usually get, this one reeks of almost industrialized smear in it, which is caused by the delirious machine drumming and I just love this stuff! What is interesting – but it’s just my opinion – the drums sounds much better without hi-hats (those make the sound cheap, I’d argue), just pure blasts of kicks and snares. One wouldn’t even guess 4:52 went that quickly.
Second track comes from the 2018 split with Embedded Flesh “Vacant, Repulsion, Dreading Intellect” and it’s titled “15 Tracks of Alienation and Distress”. I’d say it’s more interesting than the opener discussed above, the sound is not as clear as with “Grey Matter” and I still need to decide if it’s for the better or worse. Nah, it doesn’t affect the track that much, I’d say. Pretty variable gorenoise stuff and another 5:36 well spent. By the way, it’s the longest track on this CDr, but it just flies.
3rd track is “32 Tracks” from the 2018 demo “Self Inflicting Tortures And Sonic Persecution” and it’s the harshest of these three. The basic building sonic blocks of Red Pulp Cords remain – furious mechanic blasts, but the vokills – if you can call them that – are now in the good ole fashioned hydro-bubble way. So basically none and you have an extra instrument.
Funnily enough, I’d prefer to reverse the order of track from 1-2-3 to 3-2-1 as it’s not only chronological (I might be wrong with the track 2 and 3), but also it shows nice progress in quality of the output. I have to say though, there is no weak track here, all three can stand on their own. And I guess it’s pretty remarkable.
As I’ve written above, I will try to get more information about this Italian act and bring back some more details very soon. Until then – write Stefano Pigato from Sialorrhoea Production and order a copy for yourself. Yep, it’s that good, so what the hell are you waiting for?
