I'm more interested in the atmospheric, bleak type of noise that industrial music often provides rather than straight up harsh noise (often referred to as death industrial). Atrax Morgue provides a level of suspense that many other artists cannot provide.

Maybe because it's interesting to hear how he plays around with different noises, I dunno. It's not so much "random noise" like being between two radio stations so much as it's "controlled noise". To me, it does have a rhyme and reason despite not really having any qualities of music. And that's interesting to me I guess.
I dunno, all I really know is I enjoy some of Merzbow's work. Dunno if I could sit through 50 albums of it, but I do enjoy listening to his stuff once in a while.
Not that it really matters, but this is personally my favorite Merzbow track though. Has more of a drone-y quality to it I guess, something akin to Sunn O))) if you took out the doom stuff and just left the drone/noise. And it's not the type of Merzbow track that makes your ears bleed either. Kinda atmospheric. Even has a little section right at the end that resembles some form of music, ha.

If there is a god, it's probably noise.
I am starting to read The Fountainhead by Ayn Rand. Kill me now.
On a musical note, making a panflute with nothing but pvc pipe, a hacksaw, and my own calculations is a pain in the ass.
