Merzbow - Yoshinotsune (2004)
Yoshinotsune (2004, Clu Clux Clam)
"This is quite different from most Merzbow records (that I've heard). Falling somewhere between ambient & cacophonous, Yoshinotsune is a tremendously entrancing series of atonal drones. The first track contains a tribal drum pulse which is attacked by fierce fuzz shots and sounds somewhat like an anthem of the Machine Army. The rest is what might ensue after the Machine Army takes over. I fucking love this record!" - DD
