REVIEW FROM MUSISQUE MACHINE
'Heavy Masonry ia all about creating a very thick & constant black jittering wall of evil sounding & murky static tone. Inside the black spray paint of black plastic case Griz=zlor offers up just over twenty minutes of grim, nihilistic yet rewarding 'wall' making.
The tracks 'wall' is built around a mid-pace rolling & crunching static boil which has some nice speaker rippling & crackling semi tones come off of it. At times it feels like jitters & crackles could suddenly join-up together & speed-up into all out overload, but they never do. It just keeps a steady, mid-pace & entrenched path through-out which over time becomes very hypnotic & additive as the 'wall's almost stuck groove really digs into your head. The whole track fells like your sliding slowly down a vast black slop of shadowy form& everywhere you look up, down, and from left to right is this juddering static fog that has more pitch blackness in it than white light; and it just seems to be getting thick & more engulfing the longer the track goes on.
Another excellent example of pitch black, thick and unmovable slice of 'wall' making from this Pennsylvanian based one-man project that has been active since 2006.
