A View From Nihil - “Primordial Sea” (Void Seance 2011)
Man what a killer release. A View From Nihil is a HNW (harsh noise wall derrr) artist from Northern Ireland. I haven’t heard any of his other records but to me, on this track (oh yeah this is one track that clocks in at just under an hour), he’s more of a drone artist. Most HNW is unchanging and strictly noise, but on here AVFN incorporates what sounds like synth, and it also has quite a bit of changes going on. The track starts with some crackling and popping, and actually kind of sucks. Then rich low frequencies enter the soundscape and holy fuck it’s so good it hurts. One of the shortest hours in my life listening to this. Unfortunately there are only 30 copies of this floating around and they are long gone.
