WAVES CRASHING PIANO CHORDS / FARTING CORPSE - SPLIT 7''
New York noise powerhouse Waves Crashing Piano Chords and Michigan Noisecore outfit Farting Corpse have come together for a split release comprised of 6 minutes total of unrelenting cacophony. I'll be reviewing this split one side at a time.
Let's start with the Waves Crashing Piano Chords side. WCPC is a project that I've followed for quite a while now, and if you are unaware with the project, it is highly recommended you witness the live show or discover it through Youtube. WCPC is one of the strongest noise projects doing it right now, and with this release he continues in his tradition of minimalist, raw, unsettling feedback worship and power electronics. Here, WCPC gives us 3 minutes of material consisting of raw, fried, brittle feedback worship coupled with an abrasive vocal performance of sexually charged lyrics. The minimalist atmosphere is intense and powerful, and sure to please any fans of Whitehouse, Kylie Minoise, or similar acts in that style. Whoop Whoop!
Now let's focus on the Farting Corpse side. If you're looking for the roughest, rawest noisecore you can kind, look no further. 3 minutes of nonstop noisecore, sounding just as raw and brittle as the WCPC side. Farting Corpse is a strong noisecore act, and like the Methlab Explosion review I posted not too long ago, this release doesn't leave in any bullshit. Just pure, aggressive, raw noisecore built upon harsh noise freak-outs. FFO: Anal Cunt, Cripple Bastards, Last Days of Humanity, etc.
This is definitely a strong split, and each project - while different in style - really compliment each other really well. Clocking in at only 6 minutes total, this thing doesn't overstay its welcome, and is very direct. Check this out and support each project.
