Not up to date with noise music but don't forget the legendary Masonna!

Incapacitants



Not sure if its classed as electronic but for extreme content you can't go wrong with Smell and Quim (13 mins not for the faint hearted or easily offended)



Bit more up to date but Terror Cell Unit are worth checking out for some eurorack power electronics

This Incapacitants performance is just lovely:



...And one of the more extreme Merzbow albums would be Akasha Gulva. A masterpiece in my mind.
NOISE HEALS.

This is a difficult question for me to answer, but I do feel like, if pressed really hard for an answer, I'd have to agree that the first half of Bird Seed is some of the most intensely "electrifying", unwholesomely satisfying, noise/PE I have ever heard. The second half is way more subdued, sonically peaking, but also grimmer in some respects. Generally, it doesn't take "brutal" or "extreme" sonics to induce moral/spiritual/existential anguish, anxiety, horror, etc., which seem almost equally crucial to a genre like PE beyond the realm of insincere irony/parody or masturbatory, edgelording revelry. At any rate, I'd even call the first half of Bird Seed "fun", in that it's such highly invigorating, energizing stuff. Empowerment through sheer contempt! It's a very good album that I've jogged and/or lifted weights to, and also blasted in my sled as a PoMo white boi form of futuristic gangsta rap. Rightfully regarded as a modern classic.

Also, POS has already been mentioned, but bears repeating as well:


Masonna, probably pentuply-co-signed at this point, also. Ejaculation Generater is my jam.

I really like stuff like Facialmess and Sickness also... Breakneck harsh cut-up assault!

Also, while I don't love everything they did, I do like some ATR songs very much:

I suppose the sampled thrash riff and nihilistic pessimism of the lyrics help it a lot, though.
