A release I was waiting for for a long time and it did not disappoint me. Merzbow and John Wiese remixing older material and you can tell which is which, not only by the sounds but also by the track lengths. Merzbow's mix being the last track at over 27 minutes long.
Wiese does an excellent job with Merzbow's work. You can clearly hear older Merzbow albums like, 'Orested', 'Hybrid Noisebloom', 'Pulse Demon' and 'Space Metalizer'. Which are all killer albums in there own right. A top of all this clutter of noise their still is Wiese's distinctive cut-up style that meshes in very well.
The Merzbow track is a journey and relates very well to what his sound use to be before his digital age.
The album plays as one continuous track too so it's very easy to find yourself lost in which track you’re playing, which is no so bad.
