Album Notes and Credits
Merzbow: Masami Akita.
Recording information: Munemi House, Tokyo, Japan (09/2009).
Masami Akita shows no signs of reeling back his legendary noise. 13 JAPANESE BIRDS VOL. 3's three songs (which total nearly an hour) could be an imaginary soundtrack to a horror movie that would make Clive Barker squeal. The 31-minute opener, Black Headed Gull," is an especially challenging exercise in white noise and subtly magnetic death-metal percussion, while "February Of 2002" settles into a slightly more digestable post-industrial din. The eight-minute finale, "Angel Of The Odd," is the most outright inviting, though it's still a terrifying slab of minimalist, fuzzy thrash. JAPANESE BIRDS can be difficult, but reserves Akita's place atop the pecking order of experimentalism.
