**199 copies, in process of stocking** "Merzbow stands as the most important artist in noise music. The moniker of Japanese artist Masami Akita was born in Tokyo in 1979. Inspired by dadaism and surrealism, Akita took the name for his project from German artist Kurt Schwitters's pre-war architectural assemblage The Cathedral of Erotic Misery or Merzbau. Just as Schwitters attacked the entrenched artistic traditions of his time with his revolutionary avant-garde collages, so too would Akita challenge the contemporary concept of what is called music. Merzbow would draw further influence from the futurist movement. Not only would he embrace the futurists' love of technology and the machine civilization, he would push their fondness for noise to the very boundaries of the extreme. Working in his home, he quickly gained notoriety as a purveyor of a musical genre composed solely of pure, unadulterated noise. By 1990’s, Merzbow had a significant underground reputation for creating harsh and power electronics album. Dadarottenvator was released in 1995 by the magnificent German label Praxis Dr. Bearmann in a limited edition of 175 hand-numbered copies, pressed on green vinyl, and housed in a wooden box.

The tracks fall right in-between the atmosphere of Merzbow's early '90s work and his more hyper-aggressive mid '90s power electronics work and it's a charming mix, presenting the listener with some of the best elements from each phase of his evolution. Along with Noisembryo, Venereology and Pulse Demon, it represents the top of the immense artist’s production. All tracks are performed using cheap electronics and junk, no use for synthesizer and midi sampler. Remastered at Munemi House in 2019 by Masami Akita.

The record has been pressed on 140 gr black vinyl with full color label and sleeve plus poster, everything housed in wooden box. Artwork by Masami Akita."
