Vinyl LP pressing. Relapse presents a remastered reissue from the undisputed king of Japanese noise, Merzbow. Pulse Demon is one of the most celebrated releases of Masami Akita's storied four decade long career. Composed entirely by live noise concrete and the use of a fuzz box, Pulse Demon eschews all overdubs and studio trickery, laying Merzbow bare. What follows in these recordings is the pure essence of unfettered noise. The rawness in Pulse Demon is palpable; praised as "genuinely extreme, downright torturous sounds that are strangely compelling in their shredding intensity" (A.V. Club) upon it's original release in 1996. Remastered by James Plotkin (Isis, Electric Wizard, Full of Hell) the Pulse Demon reissue also features "Extract 1," a never-before released track that was recorded as part of the original sessions.
