True hidden treasure of Merzbow-Music! Recorded in 1983 it's for sure not your another typical Merzbow album. It was buried deep in artist's archives for the past 35 years. Masami Akita never liked them as it had too much synth (!), too much guitars (!!), too much rhythm box (!!!). This remastered version was previously released as a part of Lowest Music & Arts 1980 - 1983 10x LP box on VOD label. Now you can taste it on CD. Enjoy psychedelic atonal guitar-noise in combination with minimal synth and technoid rhythms. Let's get this droid party started!

Yahatahachiman is chaotic but structured, an outcome so perfect that inevitably transforms into something vastly meditative and ritualistic! Created with the utmost care, an electronic evangelion, five mantras of noise absolution.
Masterpiece, nothing less!

Yahatahachiman is another worthy trip into the lesser heard side of Japan's king of noise back catalogue, and it offers up more moody/ atmospheric fare that utilizes both formal beats, electronics, and guitar elements
