Merzbow vs. Nordvargr - Partikel II

>> Friday, September 19, 2008

[Japan-Sweden / 2007 / Cold Spring]

"Another beautifully constructed collaboration from the two noise giants - Japanoise King Masami Akita (aka Merzbow) and Swedish Lord Henrik Nordvargr Björkk (MZ.412, Folkstorm, Toroidh etc). The styles on 'Partikel II' range from total noise barrages to more subtle dark ambient pieces."

3.Reakt 2 (27:55)
4.Brockengeist Elektron (9:15)

Thanks for posting this, Im surprised no one has commented on this yet. Nordvargr is pretty much like lustmord and various other black ambient soundscape artists, and of course if you dont know merzbow, well youve been living in a cave. Its a great mixture of both artists styles. The third part should be out within a year.

Great stuff indeed! I was very satisfied with the first part so I hope this one dosen't dissapoint either. Had no idea the third one is going to be released. :O

what is partikel I like? is is more dark ambient soundscape, or full on extreme japanoise..

This is an awesome, textural album. I like the way that the songs go from almost ambient clicks to new vistas of sound. very good to listen to a night.
