Maybe time to resurrect this topic!
From the recent things, I think Wiese + Haters might be better than any new'ish Haters I have recently heard? Success in that way.
Skin Graft / Wiese also one of the best harsh noise discs of 2020?!

I think a good example of a collaboration where 1+1 = something of its own is the MSBR & Speculum Fight collab LP on P-Tapes from 1994. Raw material from Koji Tano treated and processed by Damion Romero, with some bits from Tom Grimley as well. Side A is pretty straight up not-so-harsh harsh noise with a weird air to it, but the winner is the b-side where the guys have really taken use of the stereo mix. With clattering acoustic sounds flying all around and through your head, this deserves speakers and some proper volume, and it doesn't sound typical of either MSBR or Speculum Fight. A truly overlooked gem that I keep coming back to over and over.

Also this I listened this year again, and have to appreciate the comment! Certainly collaboration to remember!

It does not exclusively involve noise projects, but the Reek of the Unzen Gas Fumes (black metal/grindcore) collaboration with Nigamushi (dark ambient) on the B-side of Detritivorous Kamigami demo reissue is amazing.  Dark and atmospheric, and great use of various samples and sound effects (from the sound of a gate closing, to lighting-like whip cracks).  If anyone has any information about Nigamusi, I would love to hear it, as I have not been able to find anything out about them apart from their upcoming appearance on a new split album.

Agreed.  Also Wiese / Dilloway last year was very solid.

Wolf Eyes & Anthony Braxton live collab is one of my favourite discs out there of any genre. A great match.

Wolf Eyes & Sickness “There is a Part of Me You Will Never Know” LP. Great stuff from both from what I remember, been a billion years since I dug it out.

The Rita / Vomir / Werewolf Jerusalem “Threesome Slitting” one sided LP. I haven’t had a chance to hear the new 7” but I have it in my pile.

A whole batch of Wiese ones spring to mind:

Wiese / T. Mikawa CD (2016)
Wiese / Dilloway - Sniper Counter Sniper CD (2019)
Wiese / Skin Graft - Accessible World (2020)
White Gold 1 & 2 (Wiese & Blankenship)

Plus a bunch more of the Sissy Spacek collabs.... K2, Smegma, Haters, Hijokaidan.....

Full of Hell & Merzbow - both discs great. Better than your typical fusion of “grindcore & noise”. Listened to both discs recently and they both really hold up!

Merzbow & Gore Beyond Necropsy “Rectal Anarchy” - a stone cold classic! I thought I had the CD, I don’t and but I have the LP?

Sedem Minut Strachu & Massola
Sedem Minut Strachu & Supraphon Family “Hluk Off!!” 10” - mixing noisecore with some wild out there woodwinds/free jazz/noise is my idea jam any day of the week. All these records fuckin’ SLAP.

Sewer Election & Puce Mary - I have two LPs and a tape? All are pretty great. 

K2 / Constrain / Fenian CD on Oxen. Solo track from each and a 3 way scorcher at the end. Great disc!

Some of my personal favorites:

Richard Ramirez/MSBR - Sonic Aggression: Absolutely crushing collaboration and should be in everyone's collection, a classic that Richard recently re-issued.
OVMN - Optimum Volume Maximum Noise: The self-titled and maybe best tape by OVMN which was a Macro remixing Thirdorgan material.
MXM ‎- Flesh-Biting Paedophile: Another Macro collab, this time with Monde Bruits material. Macro were so good at shaping collab material.

Hijokaidan Featuring Akira Sakata - I love both the studio and live albums and subsequently became a fan of Akira Sakata's work after these releases.
Ryke - Resuscitation: Endo and Yau were already two of my favorite artists and this project contains exceptional cut-up.
Francisco Meirino & Dave Phillips - We Are None Of Us: I've loved Meirino's work since he was going by Phroq. However, this work with Dave is a high point.

Not exactly noise per say, but in a similar enough realm of experimental music:
Howard Stelzer / Brendan Murray ‎– Commuter: Two stand out artists who push each other above and beyond on this one.
Jason Lescalleet / Greg Kelley - Conversations: Lescalleet has MANY successful collaborations but this is one of my favorites. I could have also easily picked Lescalleet's collab with Dilloway, Grapes & Snakes or his work with Lambkin, like The Breadwinner.

A lot of my favorites have been named already, especially John Wiese who's done great things in many contexts, under his own name or with Sissy Spacek.  I also enjoyed his tenure with Bastard Noise, for example Descent to Mimas on Groundfault still sounds great to me.  It tells a story without being cheesy.

I have to mention Tom Smith of TLASILA, who's had some interesting side projects over the years.  His initial collaboration with Kevin Drumm, Reconquer Sleep or Disappear, is a highlight.  From my understanding, speaking to Drumm, it's principally Tom re-working material the former provided, and adding a lot of his own special sauce.
I'm not sure if you'd call Miss High Heel a collaboration or more some kind of noise rock supergroup (Tom, Weasel Walter, Azita Youseffi, Jim O'Rourke, Marlon Magas, etc.) but The Family's Hot Daughter is one hell of a journey, not quite on the level of the Shave's Wigmaker, but really out there.
Not nearly as noisy, but really good for the Schimpfluch-inclined, is the Ohne record on Mego: another case where it's more a new group than a specific collaboration, but assembling Tom with Dave Phillips, Reto Mader, and Daniel Lowenbruck was pretty genius.  Wish they'd done more.

Back to noise: the Evil Moisture/Macronympha collaboration on RRR, The Tentacles of the Octopus sometimes compete against each other, is some of my favorite ever noise.  From my understanding, according to what Andy said on an episode of Noisextra, it's him re-working source material from Macro's Super Oxide tape.  With all the killer Macro examples in this thread, a rare case of Joe giving up the reins?

Lastly, more on the experimental side, not harsh at all, are the Nurse With Wound collaborations with Graham Bowers.  Probably my preferred later NWW material, because it's really dense and layered, lots of sounds stacked and folded on top of each other.  That's generally how I like my noise also. Parade, Rupture, and Excitotoxicity are real winners.

Another collaboration that I really enjoy is the AMK track "il dome for the birds" on Super Panoramic Stereo Sound 5000.  According to the notes on the back, it contains "live performances played and recorded by AMK, Damion Romero, Geoff Brandin, Erik Hoffman, Jorge Martin, and Bob Bellerue."  It is an astounding sound collage made out of samples of bird recordings and bits of a rock song.

Forgot to mention another couple of enjoyable Evil Moisture collaborations above:
The infamous Fatanarchy On Airtube with Hanatarash, and the one with Panicsville on Nihilist Records.

The Rita + Wilt is fantastic.

John Canady and Scott Candey teaming up for Blunt Force Trauma was a favourite when I first started listening to PE/Noise

Entartun is a note worthy recent one.

Ah fuck, Keith Brewer and Macro on the Human Skin Lanterns release/s too. Can't forget that.

The Rita + Wilt is fantastic.

Agree. Devastating noise flows on that album. Mania / Coma Detox is the first collaboration which comes to my mind now, for which I really jumped out the chair recently, together with the one with The Rita on the "Escorting" box . Other very good ones: Grunt / Gelsomina, Genocide Organ / Grey Wolves, Linekraft / Alberich, and plenty of other ones. Regarding most recent outputs, I really enjoyed the God is war / Crawl of time tape as well. Didn´t listen to the Sektor 304 / Täter CD so far, but I liked both the original stand alone releases so I´m pretty sure this "remaking" will be above average as well.

Some ones that immediately spring to mind:

Joseph Hammer / Jason Crumer
Rock n Roll Jackie / Pain Jerk
Schimpfluch / Masonna

Pretty much all of Graham Lambkin's collaborations - the recent Bill Nace collab is a definite 2020 highlight here. The Jason Lescalleet collabs are among my favourites from either artist (no mean feat given the strength of both discographies). The Joe McPhee collabs (the Chance Meeting CDr deserves a far wider hearing), Elklink, Tart, etc, etc.

Some favourite Erstwhiles (whose modus operandi is pretty much the topic of this thread):

Ami Yoshida / Toshimaru Nakamura - Soba to Bara
Annette Krebs / Taku Unami - Motubachii
Toshiya Tsunoda / Manfred Werder - Detour
Jeph Jerman / Tim Barnes - Matterings
Lucio Capece / Marc Baron - My Trust in You

I don't think it got much circulation outside of Japan but Tori Kudo and Rick Potts - Ka-Bella-Binsky-Bungo! is a firm favourite round these parts. A high point in two discographies jammed full of gems ... deserves a wider audience.

Fully agreed on everything said about John Wiese. I'd also add the Kevin Drumm collab LP on Nihilist. I wouldn't say it's better than the sum of its parts, or sounds different to what you'd imagine this collab would sound like, but 1 + 1 = 2 is sometimes perfectly satisfying. I'd also put the Borbetomagus / Hijokaidan collaboration in this boat.

Some ones already mentioned:

New Blockaders & Organum
Gomikawa Fumio
Evil Moisture & Hanatarash
Francisco Meirino & Dave Phillips
Wolf Eyes & Anthony Braxton

Honourable mentions:

Mark Durgan / John Wall
Junko & Mattin
P16.D4 & SBOTHI
Richard Ramirez & Skin Crime
Bill Orcutt & Jacob Felix Heule (probably my favourite Bill Orcutt release from the last number of years, all of which I loved)

Oh, and I don't know if it counts since it was a regular collaboration but I'd definitely add Richard Youngs & Simon Wickham-Smith. Lake is as close to perfection as I can imagine - gorgeous, baffling, alien, all rolled into one perfect package.


Edit: haven't heard it yet, it's on its way, but I'm almost certain the "new" Duncan Harrison & Ian Murphy LP will be on this list.
Double Edit: I've just realised this might be a split rather than a collab. I'm leaving it here anyway as I'm sure there's more than a pinch of psychic bleed through between the sides.
