Album Notes
Masami Akita is really one of those people that need no introduction. ‘Somei’ is a 55-minute trip into rhythmic hell, sure to please devoted Merzbow followers as well as bring new members to the ongoing cult of noise that he has built throughout the last 20+ years. Featuring live drums that wouldn’t sound out of place in a grindcore or thrash-jazz album, as well as the obligatory full-on sonic assault, this is Merzbow at his finest and heaviest. Essential.
