Japanese noise musician Masami Akita or – the name he is so much better known as – Merzbow, is sharing a new re-mix track he’s helmed…
“Bleed Like You” is a single off of the current Mortiis release, ‘The Great Corrupter‘ and Merzbow twists it into something far removed from the original. Much like his own recorded material, Merzbow‘s reinterpretation is a twisted instrumental of mind-distorting proportions.
“This is not a remix – it’s abuse! The good kind. If you prefer your music traditional, and your audio all pleasant and polished, you should consider walking away now. It is Merzbow mutilating Mortiis. I never really thought that that was going happen, and I don’t think anyone else did either!”
“We’ve been trying to think a bit different art-wise for the last few singles,” said Mortiis. “I thought the time was right to try art directions that were not typical of Mortiis to take.
“The Merzbow remix single art is another idea I’ve had for a long time. As usual, it’s morphed from the original idea, into a different beast almost entirely, in time. But what else is new?”
