Pinhas / Merzbow / Wolf Eyes
Victoriaville May 2011

Pinhas / Merzbow / Wolf Eyes: Victoriaville May 2011 (Victo)
Label: Victo    
Released in: Canada    


"What may be most remarkable about Victo is the matching of stylistic diversity with common quality. French guitarist Richard Pinhas, Japanese electronics specialist Merzbow and the American trio Wolf Eyes combined in a triumph of noise, a work of mass and grandeur that could suggest a Bruckner symphony at the other end of the industrial revolution." Stuart Broomer, MusicWorks

"Whether pulsing out cosmic bubble tones of a very spacey nature or erupting with cacophonous shards of bulldozer destruction, everyone looked placid and content (for the most part), just happy to be there, wreaking aural havoc in good company."-Byron Coley, The Wire

"In another compelling set, Richard Pinhas, Merzbow and Wolf Eyes gave a beautifully detailed and precise performance that was symphonic in scale, electronic chattering stabs of processed sax, guitar and vocals undulating and building to a brutal and, at times, painful intensity, foreboding dark tension of fluttering engine throbs, shrieking feedback and screeching sheet metal tearing at the edge of the abyss - a highlight of the weekend."-Mike Chamberlain, The NY City Jazz Record
