No artist is more identified with the uncompromising genre known as “Japanoise” than Masami Akita, a.k.a. Merzbow. Across 40 years and over 400 recordings, Merzbow has pushed the boundaries of “music,” becoming celebrated in particular for a style of harsh, confrontational noise typified by Venerology. Akita’s first release for Relapse Records, the 1994 LP drew on death metal and grindcore — as well as its maker’s heavy intake of beer during its creation. The result is one of the most extreme albums ever recorded.
