Boomkat Product Review:
Merzbeat stands in stark contrast to all releases in Merzbow's post-analog, digital laptop-era. Containing over 50 minutes of brand new aggressive, psychedelic, organic, analog beat oriented Merzbow compositions, Merzbeat will be quite a treat for Merzbow fans who have been disappointed with modern Merzbow records. Drummed rhythms, a punk spirit and a return to analog Merzbow. KID 606 called it 'one of the greatest things Merzbow has ever done.' The first pressing also has a hidden remix of Amlux by Jack Dangers of Meat Beat Manifesto.
