Experience the Sonic Violence of HYRROKKIN & MERZBOW “Spatially Raised, from Seed to Volatility”

HYRROKKIN & MERZBOW laid the foundations for this project in 2013. Almost a decade later, they’re getting ready to release the tracks they’ve collaborated on. Faltered Pursuit comes out via Sleeping Giant Glossolalia on Nov. 5th — pre-order it here. Fans of these unique projects know that what’s about to emerge from their dystopic womb has been worth the long gestation. Right now, enjoy our premiere of the official video for the track “Spatially Raised, From Seed To Volatility.” It’s raw, disturbing, and sonically violent, as we already knew it would be. Enjoy!

The project stems from Hyrrokkin’s 2013 Inspire Rioting album, for which the band enlisted artists like KK Null (Zeni Geva) and James Plotkin (Khanate) to remix tracks from its Pristine Origin LP. When they contacted Masami Akita, a.k.a. Merzbow, to contribute, he instead sent over a pair of his own new recordings and invited Hyrrokkin to use them as the basis for new compositions – flipping the script on the typical remix, Merzbow put Hyrrokkin in the cockpit and gave the band the power to build something new from a Merzbow foundation. Here now, years later, is the final result: Faltered Pursuit.
