The Vomit Arsonist – Patience/Violence C20

Danvers State Recordings

I always wonder how much my mood effects certain reviews. Today, the churning, pummelling slow dirge of The Vomit Arsonist very much compliments my current disposition so this is bound to be a positive review. Patience/Violence is actually a reissue of the tape that was originally released in 2010 on Exterminate the Brutes – a label title that sounds counter productive to The Vomit Arsonist’s goals.

Patience features drowning toms sounding to a dark pulse with warm analog hums in the background, PE vocals barking prominently keep the track consistent throughout its duration. Not much change here but a solid base of negative sounds keep things beaten and bruised. Violence carries on the atmosphere succinctly with more doomy black noise this time. There are industrial hits instead of toms and the vocals are even more mangled. There are points where the banging subsides to reveal seething noise lurking in the background.

This is a short and colorless journey but one that is sure to reinforce your negative mood. The bleak art accompanying the cassette sets you up for the sounds well and the mood here is deep and lifeless.
