Nekrasov/Aderlating - split (Chrome Leaf 2010)
I’m still alive. That so much is true. THough I’ve been buried in boxes of records that I got mailed to me this week. SO much sick black metal vinyl to spin that I don’t even know where to start. So I’ll start with this split LP between Australia’s favorite noisy black metal dude Nekrasov and The Netherlands very own black ambient Aderlating.
I had never heard of Aderlating before this, but after a bit of research, the internet has informed me that Aderlating is the dark ambient project of black noise psychopath Maurice De Jong, better known as the brain behind Gnaw Their Tongues, a project I am fully aware of and a huge fan of. Aderlating is the opposite side of the record from Gnaw Their Tongues (record humor) in terms of sound. While Gnaw Their Tongues is brutal black metal blasts infused with noise and even classical arrangements (but not in a Dimmu Borgir way) Aderlating is a calm foreboding trip into the mind of a deranged psycho. Not to say De Jong is a psycho, but he certainly sounds like it. Though I make stuff like this and I’m not a psycho. Whatever. The last track on his side is more akin to Gnaw Their Tongues because it is definitely a black metal song. However, the song is like in the background of a foggy ambient drone, almost as if there were a black metal band playing inside a building while you were wandering around outside fucked up on Robitussin and Old Crow. Such a good side. Let’s flip this bad boy over.
You never know what you are gonna get when you put on a Nekrasov record. Unless you’ve listened to it before. But if you are like me and buy a lot of records, most stuff you listen to is new to you. Anyway, I’ve heard Nekrasov records that range from black metal to HNW, but this one is a new beast entirely. It continues with Aderlating’s side and is one long evil as fuck dark ambient track. It’s quiet and disturbing, with bits of back masked sounds and eerie synth drones. I love the fact that everything Nekrasov does sounds different and yet he chooses to use the same name for everything since he’s alone. First off it makes it easier to track down stuff he plays on, secondly it’s all the same person so why should different genres be different artist names (Aderlating I’m looking at you)? I don’t know. If he was collaborating with different people each time I could see having a new band name for each record, but for now I’m glad he sticks to Nekrasov. Another top notch track from him, and a proud addition to my collection.
Let’s also take a moment to relish is the beauty of this record. It look black with grey splatter in the pic, but its actually dark green. But if you hold it up to the light its yellow/green. So sexy. Vinyl boner.

So this band (well one guy) has been a new obsession of mine as of late. A friend of mine put out a limited CDr of this guys HNW stuff which was pretty awesome, so I checked out this and another record, and goddamn are they awesome. I decided to review this one, because it’s vinyl and for no other reason for that, because as we all know it’s the superior format.
This record brings quite a bit to the table in a short matter of time. There is dark ambience, noise, black metal, and ugh black noise (the more I use that term the more douche chills I get) all on this record! and he doesn’t half ass anything either. The noise is harsh and satisfying, the dark ambient is evil and scary, the black metal is well played and recorded but not gay like Dimmu Borgir or something, and the black noise is harsh and evil! This Aussie certainly knows his shit; I bet he makes a mean Vegemite sandwich considering his musical skills.
Typety typey type. It’s way past my bedtime… six reviews today, I rock!
