Sustain and release but really almost all sustain! Harsh noise-maestro caterwauls you with one of my favourite Merzbow sonic paintings!

Funny, I feel the reverse commentary on this release from the first review posting. The first track is so classic Merzbow, it shares no room for insight. The second and third begin to take off, but not quite yet. The final track is the one that seperates the classic Merztracks into something more profound! It slowly builds and builds and shortly after the epitome of crescendo, you actually don't want it to end once you fully get into it. Brings you to another place, space and time!

Not the greatest Merzbow release but it has its moments. The 1st track is probably the best overall sounding track on the release. It starts very quite and then slowly cascades into the typical loud sound of rumbles. Akashiman is the loudest track on the disc and has a great distorted loop to finish the track off. The 3rd track is neat and goes along the lines of Merzbow's releases "Door Open At 8AM" and "Necromancer". The final track is one that had to grow on me. The first 14 minutes are great and show the talented side of Merzbow with his glitch out noise shots. Then for the final 17 minutes you have this long long long loud drone that barely changes, except for the pitch. It's great to hear but it can piss you off because you almost want it to end, but you can't, you have to hear it all.
