Dan Otto / Don Henson It's funny, because I listen to Merzbow daily, so this is nowhere near as extreme to me as it may be to others. Although it is. The vinyl is beautiful and quiet. Having bought it originally on CD in 1995 I've been thoroughly immersed in it many times. Favorite track: Yellow Hyper Balls.

Anthony Showalter Along with Noisembryo, Masami didn't have to go THIS hard back in the '90s. But he did. He did it for us. He did it for the world.

Jordan Schirle Oh my gosh this album is coming to vinyl! This is so crazy, I've always wanted to get a Merzbow vinyl and this is the perfect opportunity.
So many cool vinyl represses are coming out this year. Favorite track: Ultra Marine Blues.

about

⚠️VINYL IS 100% SOLD OUT. STAY TUNED⚠️

Merzbow's legendary 1996 psychedelic harsh noise masterpiece has remained among the most extreme and polarizing albums ever recorded, every bit as intense and cathartic today as it was two decades ago. "Pulse Demon" is the holy grail of the Japanese noise god's discography - brimming with unrestrained energy and vibrance, this influential masterwork decimates listeners with pulverizing bursts of pure sound. A true landmark of artistic extremity,"Pulse Demon" is perfectly suited to the dream-noise of the BLUDHONEY collection; embodying the monolithic presence of a BLUD release through its wildly expressive chaos.

Did we neglect to mention that this album is LOUD?
