Artist Details: Merzbow

Merzbow is one of the of the pioneers of the extreme scene, alongside the likes of Hijokaiden and London Ontario’s Nihilist Spasm Band. During this time he has released an insane amount of noise documents, including four on Alien8 Recordings. It is quite difficult to argue with Merzbow’s title, the king of noise. He reinvents himself on each new release, with a lot more change than your average band. The four releases on alien8 recordings are all drastically different, comparisons between releases like Akasha Gulva and Aqua Necromancer are like night and day.
