I picked this double CD up last year and enjoyed it right off, but I am consistently coming back to this record over and over again as time goes on and I've had the chance to absorb it further. It's got some similarities to Knelt Rote, (to be overly pedantic, they're American bands fusing grindcore and noise), but this album really hits hard for me the same was Trespass did. The noise supplied by Akita is used sparingly and effectively, the first disc is an absolute rager and the second disc is incredibly unique, more like a Merzbow remix record.

While I still Confused over their band name, this record is fantastic. I know they have an album collab with The Body coming out as well.

Interesting. I am a Merzbow fan. Will check this out.

Lacks cohesiveness as a collab...seems a bit afterthoughtish in places, but I am looking forward to future endeavors. Still, not a bad record at all. Young kids, super nice and genuinely interested in making something interesting in an otherwise easily disposable grindcore noise world. And they aren't going the black metal route.

Agree with the knelt rote comparison before they went black metal influenced.

Speaking of afterthoughts, the world needs another The Body collab (or solo album) like Lil Wayne needs to guest appear on a Blasphemy album.

I've not been into anything I've heard by The Body. I see people going crazy for them though.....

Full of Hell are from more of hardcore punk background, right? I hear nothing but good things about them. However, I'm pretty sure Merzbow's best moments are many years behind him. I should this out regardless.

Regarding The Body, they seem to bridge a gap between indie dudes and heshers, and I don't really get it. Kinda like Karp or the Melvins or something, but they are more overtly nihilistic than either of those. Whatever. Not really my thing. But what the hey.

I just received the LP version of this in the mail a few days ago, along with the additional "Sister Fawn" cassette. I have yet to hear it, but was really blown away by "Rudiments of Mutilation." In short, I have high hopes for this one. I believe they did, or will be doing, a live set with Merzbow in Tokyo or something... that would be cool to see.

I just paid out the ass for a copy of the LP as it sold out in pre order, but Experimedia got some in. Would like Sister Fawn either on tape or LP which I believe is forthcoming. Why wouldn't they just make it a double LP, too? I hate this vinyl market.....

Agreed. I wondered that myself. I was lucky to catch an A389 newsletter and made sure to catch this on pre-order, but the cassettes sold out in like less than a minute - it was like the first 100 orders got it. I lucked out. I hope this vinyl "trend" market dies down soon. I'm getting so sick of presses being delayed at pressing plants because of this. It's a vicious cycle.

How much did you have to pay if you don't mind me asking?

I think the LP was $21.49 + $13 shipping, but the Canadian dollar is so abysmal it worked out to almost $50 for me for a single LP. Would have been the same direct if I'd pre-ordered it.

Just kind of a swift kick in the ass that I'm going to have to do the same with the other LP. Like, come the fuck on.

This is a great release. Full of Hell are an excellent act indeed. Saw some live show footage recently with a crowd of bearded, chin stroking cock knockers standing still and watching the band. How can one experience such music live and not react in a suitably rabid fashion? Fucking spastics I tell ya.

A little OT, but where is a good starting point for Merzbow's discography?

Out of the billion releases he's put out, you can't go wrong with Pulse Demon or Venerology as "classic staples" however I would put 1930, Hybrid Noisebloom, Rainbow Electronics, Animal Magnetism, Merzbuddha, Frog+, Annica and Batztoutai with Memorial Gadgets (crucial early works, easy to get from RRR Records).

I'm not into a lot of his laptop stuff (sometime some is great) and more into his analog stuff, just like everyone else.

I also shelled out for his 13 Japanese Birds series which is great.

Never heard Merzbient, which was super limited and super pricey, nor the Lowest Arts boxes.

I don't know if it's still in print, but the 3 CD set "Another Merzbow Records" on Dirtierbis great, lots of obscure comp tracks.
