Label: Relapse Records

Format: LPx2

Genre: Noise

Out of stock

The undisputed king of Japanese noise Merzbow returns, as the landmark album 'Venereology' celebrates 25 tinnitus-inducing years with its inaugural vinyl pressing! Remastered by James Plotkin (Isis, Electric Wizard, Full Of Hell, and more) and featuring reworked art, this is the most extreme recording of harsh electronic sickness you will ever own! 'Venereology' features a second LP with more than 20 minutes of unreleased bonus material. By 1994, Merzbow had a significant underground reputation for creating harsh and discordant noise electronica. Venereology is an important step forward for the Japanese legend. It is his foray into metal music or at least his interpretation of it. Released by metal label Relapse Records, it represents their attempt to move into experimental noise circles and also gives Merzbow the widest exposure of his career to this point. Inspired by grindcore, death metal, and copious beer-drinking, Venereology is wailing, excruciating listen that cuts with a kind of ferocity so severe that listening to it feels like a total assault on your sanity.
