This Merzbow/Pitbull mashup is nightmare fuel
I’m taking this blog from a positive to a negative, I just want you to know that.
What’s more terrifying than the noise music composed by Japanese artist Merzbow? The harrowing debauchery of Mr.
305 Worldwide, of course. For 16 years, Pitbull, the Miami Beach Madman, has been terrorizing the streets of the greater 305 area code and parts abroad, bringing his sordid reputation for guns, sex, and hard liquor to the club and beyond. Sure, Pitbull has a squeaky-clean public image, even traveling as far north as Kodiak, Alaska as part of a Walmart promotional event, but don’t be fooled by his clean shave and disarming charisma; Pitbull is pure filth. Don’t believe me? Listen to his philistine antics and raw debauchery rendered bare on “Ay Chico (Lengua Afuera).” That’s “Tongue Out” for you innocent gringos.
Disgusting! Wretched! Profane!
So what could make an artist as perverse and dangerous as Pitbull even more unfit for consumption? A pairing with the deranged noise alchemist Merzbow. Pulse Demon alone is a harrowing trudge through demonic static wastes and industrial refuse, a bilge-encrusted slog of hellish terror. Adding Ne-Yo‘s vacuous incantations over the howling hiss of the infernal industrial dread only compounds the nightmares. It’s as if a charming incubus has stepped forth from the very abyss itself in a white suit and a clean shave to offer you his hand, but what waits behind that lopsided grin is damnation itself. “Give Me Pulse Demon Tonight” is hell.
Abandon all hope, ye who enter here.
