Music Consumption: Keiji Haino
08/08/1999 Keiji Haino: The Book of "Eternity Set Aflame"

I've refrained from playing this at work--it sounds exactly like a hard drive dying, and I don't want to freak anybody out. There are only three tunes on this, but they add up to 70 minutes. The intense feedback of the first movement contains a lot of higher fuzztone frequencies that will probably damage your hearing if you listen to this at anything above just-audible. And the second and third movements, where he starts emoting the ineffable in tortured screams, are, to be honest, kind of a lot to take. I enjoyed it, but I'll also note that if you're looking for a way to clear out those party guests who will just not leave, you've found your CD.
