Writhe - XVX 09:35


From it’s onset, hardcore has served an important artistic purpose: giving a means and a voice to those that want to turn back on the status quo and violently scream their objections. I’ve personally seen noise as another artform that shares this purpose: where hardcore focuses on political processes, noise shifts towards artistic and aesthetic status quos. “X Means Not Welcome” aims to bridge the two allowing space for artists to rail against an acceptance of drug use as the norm through highly antagonistic sounds. From The Rita’s signature brand of harsh noise wall to Breaking the Will’s cut up mastery, the glitched out assault from Flesh Trade, and the suffocating drones of Writhe, this comp brings four distinct approaches to the same goal: shaming people into thinking that drugs are dumb. I’m biased, but I think it’s a compelling argument.
