Boomkat product review for:

merzbow - Anicca

The first part in this trilogy of agonising noise was recorded at Tin Pan Alley Studios on Denmark Street in London, and is notable for featuring Masami Akita running riot on the drums (among other instruments). There's no evidence of Merzbow emerging as a Chris Corsano-like talent on Anicca, but his relentless freeform skinsmanship is entirely in keeping with the tone of his performance on other instruments - speaking of which, Anicca does feature the use of one or two handmade contraptions, and a photo of one such device is supplied in the liner notes, looking conspicuously like some sort of implement used in a poorly furnished torture chamber. The remaining two pieces seem a little more solid and consistent in their delivery, following along the same lines of computer and effects-driven battery that have been so dominant in Akita's recent pursuit of aural damage.
