Album Review

Merzbow – “Eucalypse” – [Soleilmoon Recordings]

cinder   4/3/2009   A Library, CD

Eucalyptus apocalypse! This release by Merzbow seems to be influenced by the koala’s favorite meal. Fancy coaster style photos he found online of various tree settings in India, and a wood style case. Only 1,000 copies, so be nice to it! Merzbow is Masami Akita from Japan, who’s known as an extreme noise artist. Five semi-long tracks. Hammering metal machines & electronic screetching bliss. They seems to have hidden melodies in the underbelly though, it’s not all just in your face white walls. Merzbow used an EMS synth, a Roland organ, handmade instruments, laptops & effects.
