Metalvelodrome was released in
1993 by the fabulous Japanese label Alchemy in a four cds box.
The tracks fall right in-between the atmosphere of Merzbow's early 90's work and his more hyper-aggressive mid 90's power electronics work and it's a charming mix, presenting the listener with some of the best elements from each phase of his evolution.
Along with Noisembryo, Venereology and Pulse Demon represent the top of the immense artist’s production.
All tracks performed using cheap electronics and junk, no use for synthesizer and midi sampler.
Remastered and revised without the two tracks live and with four bonus tracks at Munemihouse in 2019 by Masami Akita.
This reissue comes in awesome silver wooden box with
laser engraving of original artwork cover on front (and inside) and Urashima
logo on back.
Each single CD inside wooden box comes in cardboard wallet with new artwork by Masami Akita plus foldable and individually numbered certificate in 500 copies.
