CROWN OF BONE & WILT – NEUROSIS OF ENTHRALLMENT (CDR by Obfuscated Records)
Two solo pieces here by each band/person/project and then a lengthy collaborative piece. I don’t think I heard of Crown Of Bone before, but this kind of loud, unrelentness (harsh) noise (wall) is not so much my cup of tea. I could have passed this on to Jliat, like I did with the other two new releases on the same label, but actually Wilt is something I quite dig. Here we have two pieces of dark dramatic drones, lots of reverb and the guitar is slowly burned down. Or wait, maybe it’s some sort of metallic thing tossed around in the basement? I don’t know, really, but it sounds quite alright. Maybe as subject matter all too dark and too ‘gothic’ (too much reverb at least) for me, but the sun is shining and I’m in good mood. The best thing here is the thirty-five minute collaborative piece between the two. It leaves out the noise element of it all but ends in a fine racket of distorted guitars at the end, which is great, but is also way more complex than the Wilt solo pieces. Its more like shimmering tones, deeply processed feedback, not too much reverb (or perhaps so much we hardly hear it anymore) and altogether a more than excellent piece of very dark ambient music with a loud coda to it. Great collaboration. (FdW)
