"Maso Yamazaki a.k.a. Masonna is undoubtedly the most over the top player in the field of extreme noise." is what the label site Alien 8 recordings says.. Well he is, screaming and shouting while manipulating his quite simplistic, on whitenoise based, tracks.
Awesome artist, simply because he does his 'thing' like no one has ever done it before and/or will do in the future..
