Merzbow - Pulse Demon

Merzbow - Pulse Demon

"PULSE DEMON is probably the most iconic, most representative and best known album in the JAPANOISE scene and MERZBOW discography.This is the edge of music and sound, here you enter a new dimension made of POWERFULL NOISE.Recorded in 1995 and first released in 1996 on the US label REPLAPSE, this album was re-released several times in both, CD and Vinyl formats.This is the first time in which the album was completely re-mastered by Masami Akita for a CD re-release with the addition of an exclusive bonus track taken from the original PULSE DEMON recoding session (the original DAT) and never used up to now. Thealbum comes in a six panel digifile presenting the lavish original and very psychedelic holographic-waves-art-work.PLAY VERY LOUD AND MERCILESS!Here are some notes on this album by the maestro:Pulse Demon has been reissued twice in the past, but this is the first time I have remastered it myself. Itwas originally recorded on several DAT tapes between September and November 1995. Tracks 1to 5 are on the first DAT, tracks 6 and 7 on the second, and track 8 on the third. Each DAT included other material than that used on Pulse Demon.Tracks 6 and 7 were the last recordings. Pulse Demon is the second album on Relapse Records, but compared to the first album, Venereology, which was made with a strong Death Metal influence, Pulse Demon is more Merzbow-esque. I think one of the reasons for this is that it was one of the first albums Iused the EMS synthesizer on.*** MASAMI AKITA (2023)Tracklist:1. Woodpecker No.12. Woodpecker No.23. Spiral Blast4.
