Japan is the land of extremes - something you can definitely tell from
the work of the members of Monster DVD.
Guitarist Tabata is founding member of the infamous "The Boredoms" - a band which has an absolute superstar status in Japan, he is also a permanent member of Zeni Geva fame.
Superb Zeni Geva shouter KK NULL is is playing drums for Monster DVD. KK NULL is also internationally reknowned for his experimental recordings.
Monster DVD are last but not least completed by Yasutoshi Yoshida who is reknown in the harsh noise scene as "Government Alpha" (see also the deafborn release "deafness is not a gift" (dbcd02) - the quality of his noise is of brilliant quality, ranking him fully in line with fellow Japnoisers ala Merzbow, Masonna or The Gerogerigegege.
If you are curious to hear how this collage of Metal-musicians, experimental
electronicists and harsh noisers sounds like... check it out on 1st December
Buzzwords like "guitar noise", 70's Krautrock, Industrial, Noise, Free Form stand not up to this exceptional unit.

Modulator play a mix between melody, noise and orchestras of chaotic
micro insects on the instruments of current and past popculture.
Musical influences range from Düsseldorf via Birmingham to Chicago, realized on synthesizer, drums and vibraphon.
Many of their instruental and repetitive songs are reminders of the freejazz movement around SunRa. Their funky drums reference the experimental chech jazzcomposers of the 60s with looped leightweight easiness. Groovy beats and a charming voice bridge the gap between filmscore and postrock very sucessfully....
