If you're looking into buying this, you might want to go out of your way to hear some samples. The recording is very low fidelity, with emphasis on the Merzbow end.

For some reason moons passed and I only wanted to sell this item which was somehow delivered immaculately - too metal, too Boris, too something or other I thought. I'm so glad that didn't happen and would recommend this on anyone's platter at this very moment. Boris can be droney but rarely totally; Merzbow can be droney but usually not totally; meeting of these minds is droney (but far from totally) and totally crushing.

Over guitar-vs.-stack ring strange noises like bird cages being closed (probably opened given Masami's sentiments but it sounds like being shut, and forever), leading into full "jams" which at points are almost reminiscent of acts like Golden Earring or Hawkwind or w/e, even at moments sounding like a bad tape recording of String Cheese Incident.

Slash of open hand across ringing open strings into brutal death rhythm followed and betrayed directly by riff but fallen immediately into again. Obscure vocals that might almost as well be sandpaper on contact mike. Big something, big metal or thrash or noise to most most likely, big something, whatever. XL: Extra Large.
