An historical reissue released in cooperation with Earache Records. Out of print for years - with most of the material being released domestically for the first time. Painkiller is Bill Laswell, Mick Harris & John Zorn, and this special 4CD package is the ultimate Painkiller document: the complete studio recordings, with all of the original booklets and artwork intact - uncensored and uncompromising, from their classic first release of 1991 Guts Of A Virgin, to Buried Secrets (featuring members of Godflesh) and their 1994 masterpiece Execution Ground. In addition to all of their blistering studio pieces and extended ambient remixes is included a ferocious live performance from Osaka, Japan that captures the band at the height of its powers. Drawing equally from the tradition of jazz, hardcore punk, dub, ambient and much more, Painkiller has created some of the most intense music you're ever likely to hear, enclosed in some of the most deliriously beautiful artwork you're ever likely to see.
