Doodshoofd | Heil HNW !!! Review
April 17th 1943
Doodshoofd | Heil HNW
Pretty much unknown and shadowed project from Netherlands, called Doodshoofd, recently started emerging from the depths, and offered the community some of its material.
The tape, interestingly entitled, "Heil HNW", comes with screen printed artwork on a beautiful carboard, or as stated by the artist, actual wallpaper. The art itself features a picture of Hitler and Stalin in a same position of a "nazi" salute. The back of the cover is only a bright blue cloud pattern, but it look great nevertheless. The tape is spraypainted with gold color.
As for the sounds, the tracks contain subtle changes, but the sound itself doesn't leave the HNW boundaries.
Side A offers a slab of brutal, bass riddled judder. The bassivity dominates while complemented with subtle harsh crackle, which is strengthened from time to time. The wall is quite uncompromising and brutal, and at times the sound resembles somekind of air raid in progress. Really enjoyable and brutal wall, especially for the bass lovers.
Side B is also dominated by strong bassivity, but that can only be a good thing.
A layer of monolithic bass thunder paired with a strong and harsh static crackling, creates a great and brooding wall. After a while the wall sligthly changes, with the bassivity becoming dark and omnius, somehow shadowed by the more intense and harsher crackle of static.
All in all, an enjoyable tape, especially for the lovers of strong bassivity!
