Yo, can we talk about “Living Wall” for a sec?

a2295531935_10

When I think about Living Wall, Lovecraft comes to mind.

In most of Lovecraft’s stories, some poor fool discovers a disturbing cosmic revelation in which their brain can’t handle and they are driven into madness. I’m certain that if this madness was interpreted into audio form, you would have Living Wall.

Imagine a brutal heavy deathcore track. Now, imagine that same track sped up one hundred percent. NOW, imagine a wall of noise on top of that sped up deathcore song.

It’s fucking insanity.

I’m not usually a fan of noise, at least it’s not something I listen to leisurely. I have always admired it as an art form. However, there is something so good, so appealing lurking inside the Living Wall bandcamp that I find myself returning to it often to subject myself to the chaos. And I love every second of it.

Living Wall is the brain child of Jason Ryan Holmes II (Bong Rips for Jesus, Hypodermix Dreamer 1999, Mother Network, Amoebosis, Viscera Gel Productions, and about a hundred other projects. Jesus I can’t keep up with this fucking guy!)

The bandcamp sports two very short releases: The Breaking Wheel, and DEMO. Both of these releases combined doesn’t even reach a run time of ten minutes. In grindcore fashion, the “songs”  only run about thirty seconds to a minute. In fact, it would take you longer to read the track names than listening to the actual track, with names such as “Tincture of Silver and Lead Poured Meticulously Into the Captive Orifice Which Spoke So Ill Upon Thy House: Clogged and Pressurized Internal Toxic Suffocation”. But it all plays into the anxiety induced theme. The songs themselves are so incoherent and distorted that you can put these albums on loop, and just sit there until your head twists off your shoulders, and you wouldn’t know where the fucking thing starts or where it stops. (Trust me, I’ve done it.)

So, if you’re into that sick twisted shit, stop in and give the bandcamp a whirl. It’s awesome.

So do your self a favor, head on over to their website to access the endless showcase of underground talent.

MORE VIDEO: Pollux also summons the madness.

Earlier I was discussing a shocking revelation that RedSK and Dental Work were using noise to summon resonant deities.

Now, it would seem, that France has been bombarded with such demons of chaos as well.

Our friend Pollux shared a disturbing video in the SP Facebook group the other day titled Black Skull. Upon observation, it is clear that he has some how managed to tear a hole into our own reality and take us on a journey through a pineal highway that is sure to rip you out of this world.

Now and only now do I know what it is like to astral travel through a computer wire and slip into oblivion. It is not coincidence that I happened upon this video while super stoned on spirit smoke.

Hurrah for it’s glory.

If you listen closely, you can hear the whispers of the resonant being…

Pretty awesome right ? ❤

VIDEOS: RedSK & Dental Work make NOISE and TOTAL FUCKING CHAOS ENSUES.

A few videos have surfaced as of late regarding the acts of NOISE gurus RedSK and Dental Work.

Let me explain.

This first video we see here is RedSK performing at what looks to be a garage show at a place called “Papa Chinn’s”  located in Fowlerville.

What ensues can only be explained as a possession of his body by resonant noise beings from an ultra chaotic dimension unknown to man. Observe…

Haunting is it not? The chaos climaxes into violence and carnage as Pat goes on a rampage, throwing his gear and convulsing his table unto the ground.

THEN!

Later today new footage emerged out of Fowlerville, showing new occurrences of this phenomena during a show at the same place only one night ago.

This time, The leader of the chaos was non other than Dental Work himself! Accompanied by Redsk, a man named Will Olter from the group “Faction Disaster”, and another man that goes by the name of Aaron Midcalf from the group “Total Hipster Crusher.”

The only way I can describe what happened next is by comparing the group to a horde of demons frantically trying to devour the bowls of a machine.

As you can see, at they end the display a similar act of carnage as they beat the machine to death with hammers. You can hear it’s high pitched screams of torment.

Finally, same night, same show, we encounter a video that is very similar to our first. Once again we have the ring leader RedSK conjuring the ultra chaotic frequencies that bring the resonant demons into our world.

Several unidentified men help usher in this madness, and the climax ensues the same as the rest. Absolute carnage and violent aggression as effects are thrown about, guitars are smashed, and people loose their fucking minds.

I don’t know what’s in the water at Fowlerville, but it makes for a damn good noise show.

Fuck me…
