Review: Richard Ramirez – Crawl In Blackness

Richard Ramirez - Crawl In Blackness

Corrosive Art Records comes around the corner with another nice little bizcard, this time by harshnoise legen Richard Ramirez.

The disc is wrapped in an oversized (at least for a bizcard) slipcase, handmade of nicely textured paper (of heavy quality) and some black ducttape. On the front there is a printed photo glued to the case, on the back some info on the disc can be found.
Inside there is the bizcard-cdr itself, accompanied by an insert and a folded a4-poster, both looking really good.

The disc hosts one single track, clocking in at 5:29 minutes. The track can be described as some sort of wall. Crackling distortion, very massive, is layered upon, allmost drowning, a droning sound in the background. The drone is there throughout the whole track and etches itself deep into your subconsciousness. While the furious textures of distortion vary from time to time, the drone is allways there. The effect is very nice, the sound fits the title of the release very well and the track is a real monolith, perfectly constructed and executed.

5 EUR is the price for this fine release, which is limited to 35 copies. So be quick with your order, due to the status of Richard Ramirez and the quality of the release this should sell out really fast.
