Coming in hot from the master of noise himself Richard Ramirez is Highway Death a new installment from one of Richards most underrated projects Crash At Every Speed. Crash At Every Speed is a project inspired by Richards obsession with car accidents and understandable fear of driving. This project speaks to the strange reality of the nearness to death we face every day while driving and the inherent ignorance we experience as we helplessly careen towards the very real and present reality of death on the road. As soon as the first sample ends detailing the tragic tale of an automobile crash that killed a mother her three children, we are greeted by a haunting wall bearing the characteristics of an endless screech of tires. Perhaps this is the aforementioned mothers last moments stretched out towards an infinity. What can be said for certain is this piece surely lives up to the key principal of a noise and industrial as well as all good art: and that is the act of forcibly confronting us with the cruel realities of this world.
