The first in a series of concept split albums, LEVEL brings together two artistic audio projects on one unique vinyl-only release.
Side one features MERZBOW, one of the most prolific and respected artists in the world of experimental noise.
Side two features ASKEW, a collective of artists, musicians and producers from the Rustblade label headed by Justin Bennett (Skinny Puppy, Bahntier) and Jeff “Squigg” Smith (Ohgr, Hate Dept).
Both projects embrace a sonic philosophy based on free experimentation and improvisation utilizing analog instruments such as modular synthesizers, as well as environmental audio samples and unique noise producing objects. The results are a wall of sound and noise that move the listener through emotional and cathartic sonic waves.
A real treat for lovers of free and structured noise, and those in search of sonic extremes. 40 minutes of Pure Noise.
Side A – MERZBOW
Side B – ASKEW
