Divelto 9-way Compilation CD:

Divelto9

2010? a x40-odd track don of draconian demolition that makes all other Noisecore compilations sound like a gentle saunter through a shopping complex (yes i’m dead the fuck serious prepuce-peeler). From Norway comes Krybbedod with a one-off (after which changed to Blod Sprut & toned th User-Hostility down considerably) x9 track rampage of some of th most assaulting Anti-Listener prehistoric Noise-Smash (Grind is a bit to advanced a description) ever to offend a recording device. Final Exit apparently pack “5643 songs” into a 5 minute dissonance dollop. Cult surrealist Industrial/ Experimental/ Electronics/ Noise/ Sonic Collage artists Illusion Of Safety provide one of th best tracks of their long career. Ultra high-clarity super Stridor from South Korea’s Astro Noise. Mourmansk 150 with th typical early strong-arm grievous ultra harsh maim. Cult three man magnificently User-Hostile major-harsh Noisegrind trash from Wage-Slave Exchange, Akita-Japan junk x17 micro manglers. Stunning, massively original & singular Cyber-Avant-MachineGrind-Noisecore from odd-ball ex-Cripple Bastards/Hate Box irksome-intellectual Fulvio Diverio as Divelto. Top-fuckin’-notch dirty & atmospheric Death-Industrial Noise Dark Ambient from th excellent Inhalant. Horrific, awful & disturbing harsh-garbage-bilge Noiecore & unsettlingly unpleasant DeathIndustrial from Jesus Of Nazareth.  The placement/progression of th bands, how it operates as an entire piece (if yu can fuckin’ handle it back-to-back) is a real right of passage for th Noisegrind connoisseur & Anti-Listener enthusiast.

Non-Negotiable Notoriety was TOTALLY let-off th leash for th packaging & artwork with a giant 9 panel fold-out poster printed on both sides & a glossed heavy card sheath that contains th CD & inlay. Th budget on this was horrendous & burnt me fa’ months but there’s no other way but max! everything right down to th on-body on this bad-boy is out of control. Puts so much to shame, a rare & singular peak!

Divelto

944926-greece-riots

Vintage CyberMachineGrynd from the genius prism of Italy’s anchorite misanthropic atrabilious protagonist Fulvio Diverio. This sensational analogue lofi slatternly raucous turbo blastbeat Hard-Vac torrent lathers on FX & distortion fermentation, yielding an advanced strain of CyberGrind, extrapolating dimensions of IDM countenance & themes <not genres> to the Grindcore rubric with a unique vocal condition that operates solely on modified samples. In reference to weird Grind-themed fast blasting FX heavy Cyber-Punk Bio-Mek, this shit runs the roost. The short 30-45 second vaults clamor with a dirty massively contumacious energy-flux deeply diverse & expertly compositional implementation all finished with a stark digressive finality. Follicle fissuringly awesome shiznoz mothafukuz!

Divelto V/A CD by Collective Zine

The postcard which came with this CD, (note, a postcard, not a press release, featuring a mouse sat on a pissed off looking cats head, so we’re off to a good start) describes it as “Really really User-hostile stuff” and “Anti-Listener”. Having sat through all 74 minutes and 59 seconds of this evil bastard, I can confirm this is an accurate description.

I don’t even really know where to start with this review. For starters, it took me sometime to figure out who the hell was even on this. In the end I managed to figure out it seems to be a comp of some sort. Differentiating the different bands/artists/charlatans is almost pointless. Everything on this CD is totally fucked. Openers Jesus of Nazareth, use some frankly worrying samples with dread inspiring noise that makes me think of David Lynch pushed over the edge of sanity. Illusion of Safety is a bit less dense, a glitchy mess of reverby, (I hesitate to call these beats) taps and electronic pulses. Astronoise could be the black box of some star ship crashing into a black hole for all I know. Blodspurt might be the sound of a grind band getting bum raped to death by a cyborg in an airlock.

Divelto themselves is something akin to a seriously angry drum machine eating your face off with big rusty metal drum stick teeth. Wage-Slave Exchange is the closest things come to an actual band as far as I can work out. Some sort of grind band sicking itself back up through a broken computer. There are actually recognisable human noises on their tracks. Mourmansk 150 is like a microphone wrapped in cellophane, then thrown into a hurricane strength sandstorm, capable of stripping flesh from bones. Final exit trick you with a small snatch of an ambient section, before battering you with yet more seriously unpleasant distortion. Inhalent have a low rumbling background noise in hell thing going.

Did I enjoy any of it? Fuck No. Its fucking horrendous. Do I admire their commitment to taking things to the maximum level of ridiculousness? Fuck yes. This bunch are cleary not interested in doing anything by half. The fold out insert that comes with this bears the legend “SUFFERING! THE MOST PROFITABLE ENTERPRISE IN HUMAN HISTORY”. I guess if you want to soundtrack that statement, this is a fairly good attempt.

(final note, although this is a comp, there are more tracks by some than others, the release has Divelto’s name on the front so I’ve filed it under their name. Even the website for this lot is destroyed. I quote; “Discordance Axis? Fuk No! Try th woman’s hygiene section of th super-market & buy yourself a bottle of bleach 2 drink while yur at it you worthles fukn turd!!!” genius).

Divelto V/A CD by Existance Establishment

Here is another confusing release. I’m not even sure if this label is still active or what but this is actually a compilation with random information printed all over the packaging so it’s kind of difficult to tell what address leads to what artist/label/etc. Plus there are 57 tracks on this puppy so the track-listing divides up the tracks per artist. It seems this is a mix of noise/industrial and cybergrind type stuff.

The first 6 tracks go to a project called Jesus of Nazareth of which I am unfamiliar. He bookends his portion with two short ambient style tracks which I dig, but the rest is chaotic lo-fi noise with a drum machine buried in there somewhere. Next, Illusion of Safety comes in with a longer track featuring his token mix of electroacoustic elements and he delivers as usual, this time with almost a Muslimgauze influenced tribal beat in the center. Next up Astronoise (which I assume has a relation to Astro?) butts in with 6 minutes of heavy harsh cut-up noise culling some amazing Japanoise spirits.

Mourmansk 150, Final Exit, and Inhalant drive the nail into the coffin in the last 3 tracks. Mourmansk 150 delivering an intense wall of hate with buried distorted dual vocals. Final Exit throws in a weird floating ambience to their noise assault while Inhalant slowly bleeds us with what is the best track here, a harrowing slab of blackened ambience full of moderately distorted scratching sounds and bass rumbles which will lead the little kiddies into a troubled sleep.

Worth mentioning is the crazy and weird art on this thing. It features photos of various political and military figures in crazy collages with an enormous fold-out poster that has tons of different elements all mixed to form 2 wicked designs. Some wacky and weird shit.
