Merzbow – Jigokuhen

From the perspective of a noise fan and of a bird enthusiast, Merzbow’s 15-part tribute to the avian species has been a truly fascinating and rewarding experience. Not all of the releases have been spectacular, but they have all had a certain charm that makes them valid items in Merzbow’s impossibly enormous and constantly growing catalog. So it is a bittersweet moment now that Important Records is giving us the final installment, pressed on limited red vinyl and black vinyl with characteristically gorgeous artwork. If history has taught us anything, it is that Merzbow releases never disappoint and, like fine wine, their value and their content tend to better with age. Soak this one up!
