Akasha Gulva was recorded live in Tokyo on June 29, 1996. The seventy minute-plus piece is relentless and without pause. Akasha Gulva demonstrates many of Merzbow’s trademark techniques in creating extreme soundscapes.

This recording marks the premiere release for Alien8 Recordings and is limited to 1000 copies.
