Merzbow / Raven / Dao De Noize - Animal Liberation




Out now new split with japanese master Merzbow and serbian noise-anarchist Raven. Split is themed about animal protection philosophy. Thanks to Masami, Djordje and Gerald for cooperation.


Animal Liberation features 3 characteristically powerful tracks of varying harshness and noise intensities with it’s theme strongly centered on animal rights and its firm stand against animal abuse.
The journey into the audio slaughterhouse begins with 2 harsh noise tracks presented by prolific Japanese noise artist Masami Akita, otherwise famously known as Merzbow and Serbia’s harsh noise artist Raven (or Djordje Miladinovic), who is highly recognisable in the harsh noise circuit as anti-war as well as a strong supporter of animal and human rights and conscious environmentalist. These two violently painful tracks are complex with a high level of hypnotic and sonic energy. The message of what these artists stand for are uniquely expressed by heavy layers of organic sounds, high frequency screeches and low level drones that almost sound like animal screams and grunts in the abattoir. This journey of butchery finally comes to an end with a closing ambient track from Ukraine’s noise/ambient artist Dao De Noize (Artem Pismenetskii). The tranquil hums overlapped by murmuring soundscapes with the background beating of hearts and animal bellows, bleats and cackles complement and complete the album. These 3 highly emotive tracks successfully propagate the intended message through a unique display of artistic sonic expression that is now one of the greatest social change movement around the world.

K.K. Null x Dao De Noize – Mizuchi Creation


Out now new collaboration with japanese master KK Null. Its called Mizuchi Creation and themed about a type of Japanese dragon or legendary serpent-like creature.Thanks to Kazuyuki, Mikiko and Gerald for cooperation.


Mizuchi or ‘Master of the Water’ is a name used to describe a well known mythical Japanese water deity resembling a serpent that lives in and around water. Titled ‘Water Snake’ in Japanese, this collaborative release showcases the sound wizardry of Japanese experimental multi-instrumentalist K.K. Null (Kazuyuki Kishino) and Ukraines’s ambient and noise artist Dao De Noize (Artem Pismenetskii). Mizuchi Creation comprises 2 tracks that flow continuously as one. Just like the impending ferocity of the serpent gliding through expanse of calm water, the album effectively maintains its sonic equilibrium of noise and soundscape through the complex balance of structured pulses, rhythmic noise, drones and hisses with the serene ambience of nature, mythology and life.
