Is there a good starting point?
i'd suggest 1930 on tzadik.... almost a best of, maybe....really nice balance between good textures and out and out violence....
music for bondage vol 1 is really good, but not the harshest stuff....
Age of 369 / Chant 2
After that I would just dip in and out of his stuff - he releases a lot. His early analogue stuff is pretty interesting in that it's not quite as full on as his more recent releases. (Music for Bondage Performance for example). Theres a great live recording of him with Sonic Youth and Mats Gustafson on SYR that's worth a listen to.
his duet with keiji haino is albsolute blistering, indispensible
is probably the most accessible solo release I've heard of his. His collaborative work with Boris (Rock Dream & Sun Baked Snow Cave) are excellent too - basically standard Boris with Merzbow scree over the top, but it fits brilliantly.
There's a whole bunch of his stuff on Spotify.
Both fantastic. I saw him at ATP and was pretty sure he was using a laptop. Selling out has never sounded so devastating.
but it's hardly representative, and no-one else seems to care for it.
but his collaborations are the bomb.
