Much needed repress of Merzbow's 1999 masterpiece, "Door Open at 8 am" remastered by Masami Akita, it includes new artwork created by Masami Akita himself. This limited edition on orange vinyl (200 Worldwide) includes two bonus tracks, a poster with new original art, and a download code.

** Edition of 200, orange vinyl. Includes two bonus tracks from the original 1999's sessions. Remastered by Masami Akita himself, from the original master tapes. Includes a poster of new artwork by Masami Akita. It includes a download code as well. ** Introducing Masami Akita's homage to free-jazz. Door Open at 8am is one of the most adventurous outings made by Merzbow. Recorded during the same era as Aqua Necromancer, this new recording also incorporates the use of sampled sounds. However, this time Akita is paying homage to his love of free jazz, free-jazz drummers to be precise. It includes tracks such as Tony Williams 'Deathspace', 'Lyons Wake', 'Metro and Bus' and an unbelievable cover of John Coltrane's 'The Africa Brass Session, Vol 2'. Aside from the absolutely scorching Coltrane cover, the listener is treated to a variety of sounds never before captured on record. Aside from Masami's trademark blasts of noise, meticulously crafted into gorgeous sound collages, he introduces a much greater importance on the use of subtleties and breaks of silence. There is also a strong electro-acoustic quality surrounding Door Open at 8am.
