Italy’s Urashima Reissues Merzbow’s ‘Metalvelodrome’ Box Set
'Metalvelodrome' is available to pre-order now.
Japanese label Alchemy originally released Metalvelodrome in 1993 on a 4CD set. The album serves as a bridge between the atmospheric and bizarre landscapes of Merzbow’s first works and the hyper-aggressive power electronics that would evolve through the latter portion of his ’90s catalog. It forms the third volume in Merzbow’s Good Alchemy series, initiated in 1990 with Rainbow Electronics.
The reissue version is housed in a 4CD deluxe silver wooden box set, including laser engravings and cardboard wallets for the CDs. Merzbow has replaced live recordings found on the original version with content he captured this year at Munemihouse.
