Merzbow (Masami Akita) is the Japanese legend and progenitor of Noise music. For three decades his view of making music has created a new and different sound entirely unlike any other in the history of musical composition. Balázs Pándi is one of Hungary’s hottest commodities, welding the tools of grindcore to a free, improvised style that has kept him consistently in demand.
Teaming up together, the percussive attack of Pándi provides a variance and dynamic that brings an entirely new dimension to the Merzbow live performance.

“In short, it was fabulous: not really improvising, but suggesting the marathoning spirit of high-impact free jazz; not really composition, but held together with the technique and concentration of grindcore drumming” - NY Times.
“This is an unflinching exploration into the outer limits of live sound performance” - The Independent
“Absolute masters of mess-making, (they) turn these performances into a passionate, hard-charging clatter that blurs the line between jazz, noise, metal and power ambient” - Rolling Stones
