Merzbow are a 1 man band from Japan that has a long history going back to the mid 70's and are one of the creators of the harsh noise genre and this is a review of their 1995 album "Venereology" which was released by Release Records.
Noise effects from from avant garde sounding noises to very harsh power electronics mixed in with some heavy distortion coming from guitar amplifiers, while the vocals are all high pitched noise screams.
Song themes cover darkness with a touch of Japenese Mytholgy, while the production has a very dark, heavy, raw and primitive sound to it with the songs being long and epic in length and if you turn up the volume loud enough you could experience hearing loss.
In my opinion Merzbow are a great sounding brutal harsh noise band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this band. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Klo Klen Phantisie" and "Slave New Desart". RECOMMENDED BUY.
