Merzbow 'Pulse Demon (Remaster/Reissue)' 2xLP
Pre-order. Due 22nd September.
Black Ice and Milky Clear Quad with Rainbow Splatter.
Relapse with a remastered reissue from the undisputed king of Japanese noise. Pulse Demon is one of the most celebrated releases of Masami Akita's storied 4 decade long career. Composed entirely by live noise concrete and the use of a fuzz box, Pulse Demon eschews all overdubs and studio trickery, laying Merzbow bare. What follows in these recordings is the pure essence of unfettered noise. The rawness in Pulse Demon is palpable
Remastered by James Plotkin (ISIS, Electric Wizard, and more,) the Pulse Demon reissues features Extract 1, a never-before released track that was recorded as part of the original Pulse Demon sessions.
