Keiji Haino ( 灰野敬二 ) - Saying I Love You, I Continue To Curse Myself (1996)

| Avant-Garde | Noise Rock | Experimental Rock |
| Experimental Rudra Vina |

This is another live recording by the japanese dark wizard (Haino's other albums) containing two long tracks of solo guitar and voice that meld into universal sound expansion.

The first track is a torrential, 43-minute cyclone of effects pedal warehouse and towering amp carnage that is so corroded with heavy voltage low-end crumble and insanely ascending high-end wail–all assembled with human spark spontaneity and smeared logic intuition–that it just left me sitting shaking my head in disbelief. And that’s even after listening to all of his other releases many times, which is kind of shocking. Track two is an 18-minute descent into ultra low-tuned rudra vina activity with beautiful, melancholy vocals fading in and out as the strings threaten to fall off at any second.
