Merzbow: Pulse Demon 2LP
Relapse presents a remastered reissue from the undisputed king of
Japanese noise - Merzbow. "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; praised as "genuinely extreme,
downright torturous sounds that are strangely compelling in their
shredding intensity." (A.V. Club) upon its original release in 1996.
Remastered by James Plotkin, the "Pulse Demon" reissues features "Extract 1", a never-before released track that was recorded as part of the original "Pulse Demon" sessions.
Black vinyl in full colour foil gatefold sleeve.
