Noisembryo definitively presented here on cd with bonus disc noise matrix including unreleased material from the same sessions as Noisembryo and counterpart 'hole' and selected recording from the time period. Absolutely can’t be missed for fans of this period of noise deity Merzbow. the bonus disc alone makes this essential for any Merzbow fanatic as well as new listeners. When people ask where to start with Merzbow? This is the answer!

The holy grail, not only of Merzbow’s obsessive discography, but of the entire 90’s noise movement. You’ve heard the stories surrounding the infamy of this release, but beyond that stands the depth and wild energy over two decades later that ‘Noisembryo’ encapsulates. Velocity loops, roving automotive bass and cacophonic drum machine gel together with the surprising inclusion of a sound rarely heard within merzbow’s many years...Masami Akita’s own voice. Akita’s surrealism of the past stands prominently relevant to this day. aAt images from unseen classic paintings and collages of Masami from the original ‘noisembryo’ session.
