Tracks:   5
Time:   80 min.

Style:           ambient  noise  wall

This is a noise b-side project run by the veteran russian musician Vitaly Maklakov, accostumed to work with musical styles such as: harsh noise, industrial, drone, ambient, avantgarde, etc. He has also 2 labels to made and distribute his works and others from the different russian artists. Maklakov noise style use to normally slow and calm, but with this new project called with the strange name "SOGRA", the musician get the absolut control and noise flows like a spring. This is the exact point I think I can be called "ambient noise wall". The typical crack of burning wood in the fire. Very good.

This time we again have an album of pure, slow, heavy, morbid and somnolent Ambient Noise Wall. But the idea gives good expectations even before listening, because these 2 projects, ie 2 people rehearsing again and again in their respective countries (Russia and USA) looking for the right texture, the more profitable frequency and ultimately the sum of elements to achieve the optimal sound really deep. Both tracks are extremely slow and somehow still remain fairly similar and close to HNW, but are not as violent like this style. I was able to purchase a physical copy of this work and frankly I do not regret the purchase at all. Only 21 copies were made in 2013 and I do not know if there has been some re-editing, but if someone want to buy the album on physical format can go HERE .
