Storage is an album by the Japanese noise musician Merzbow.[1] Due to issues with sound quality, the original recording was edited for this release. The original full-length recording was issued in the Merzbox in 2000. The working title for the album was War Storage, which was later used for the track titles of the Merzbox version.[2] The full-length version was reissued as a three-sided double LP in December 2016 by Menstrualrecordings.[3]
