Merzbow, Mats Gustafsson and Balás Pándi ‘Cuts Open’ (RareNoise)

Over 40 years of activity, Japanese musician Masami “Merzbow” Akita has created and collaborated on so many records that accessing his Discogs page makes their server room sound like one of his releases. Noisy. Collaborating here with Swedish saxophonist Mats Gustafsson and Hungarian drummer Balás Pándi, ‘Cuts Open’ has all of the abrasiveness we’ve come to expect. These four long-form pieces combine weird electroacoustics with tetchy percussion, ‘We Went Up With Mother’ and ‘He Locked The Door’ prove to be disturbing and chaotic highlights
