In the world of Noise and (Post) Industrial, there seems to be no sub-genre that conjures up more controversy than Harsh Noise Wall (or HNW, in short). Fanatically adored by some and downright despised by many in a highly verbal way, this form of mostly static and deep, crunching noise is certain to provoke at least some kind of reaction. Within the field of HNW, one of the few projects that surpasses most others in terms of recognition (and supposedly relevance) is Vomir. In about 10 years of activity, HNW veteran Romain “Roro” Perrot has done 228 releases (according to Discogs) under this moniker – tendency growing!
“Recouvre la Merde (en trois Mouvements)” is a full-length album (and with a running-time of 72 minutes, this classification is to be taken literally) which was recorded live in 2013 and released by 4iB Records from Singapore in 2014. First of all, this professionally pressed and manufactured CD looks great. The cryptical (and probably symbolical) cover art is accompanied by juicy pictures of women defecating into each others' mouths and similar Scat imagery, as well as pictures of Romain playing live with plastic bags wrapped around his head. Furthermore, 4iB included a small sticker stating the limitation number.
