**199 copies** Controlled Death is the new project by the Japanese noise legend Masonna and Symphony For the Black Murder was its first official work released in April 2018 as a vinyl edition of 199 copies which immediately sold out at source. The activities of Controlled Death are like an archaic revival to the music experience before Masonna. We can also find the pathology image of the early industrial period and the shadows of Vienna actionists such as Hermann Nitsch. The existence and art that pierce through conspicuous consciousness and dives to areas of unconsciousness due to death and pleasure. The tracks on the album are based on obsessive and compulsive synth drones with voice, effects and tapes. The smell of death is soaked in every sound produced by the brilliant mind of Maso Yamazaki. Anxiety, alienation and hypochondria turn into deep paranoia and pain. Without hesitation, the bodies are emptied, leaving the field to an electronic purulence of rare disconcerting power: a perfect Symphony For the Black Murder. This new reissue coming as a 199 copies digipack CD includes a 30 minutes bonus track recorded live during the "Black Murder Gig" at Namba Bears, Osaka, in Septemeber 2018.
