Merzbow / Mats Gustafsson / Balazs Pandi: Cuts (Rarenoise Records)
Label: Rarenoise Records    
Released in: Great Britain    


"If jazz, as the eminent critic Whitney Balliet once wrote, is the "sound of surprise," Cuts, an intensely cathartic, fiercely turbulent collaboration between Japanese noise purveyor Masami Akita (aka Merzbow), Hungarian drummer Balazs Pandi and Swedish saxophonist Mats Gustasfsson, is the "sound of shock and awe." A sonic assault of epic proportions, it blends the bombast of Merzbow's grinding white noise barrages with Pandi's thunderous pulse on the kit and Gustafsson's ferocious abandon on baritone sax and clarinet mixed with live electronics, bringing to mind a marriage of Lou Reed's Metal Machine Music and Coltrane's Interstellar Space, with touches of Sonic Youth's sonic mayhem thrown in for good measure."-RareNoise Records
