With their release of their long-awaited new self-titled full-length now just two weeks away, today MetalSucks deploys the venomous “Dogma, Intolerance, Control” from UK-based hardcore punk/grindcore legends, EXTREME NOISE TERROR.
The band’s first studio output in six years was captured at Springvale Studios with longtime producer Mark H. Harwood and sees the long-running band returning to their hardcore punk roots with a manic, stripped-down and relentlessly aggressive, bone-raw sound that perfectly complements the chaotic attack that saw the band become a favorite among punk and metal fans alike throughout the ‘80s and ‘90s. “Although their sound has wavered between extreme punk and grind over the years, EXTREME NOISE TERROR definitely grind it out,” notes Decibel Magazine in an advance review of the record, “It’s old-school style: no frills, all kills, Jones and McCrow trading off politically-active screams. The nice thing about EXTREME NOISE TERROR… is that even at their fastest, they never lose their songs in the hyperspeed. There’s always that punk grounding, so there’s still space to mosh between blast beats.”
Alongside their exclusive premiere of “Dogma, Intolerance, Control,” MetalSucks issues, “EXTREME NOISE TERROR’s music continues to be a powerful kick in the nuts of the mainstream. The band’s music is an ugly, chaotic reflection of an ugly, chaotic world. Their music works as both a form of protest and a declaration of war. They’re not sitting on The Corrupt King’s lawn singing ‘We Shall Overcome’ — they’re setting his fucking castle on fire.”

Forged in Ipswich, England in 1985, EXTREME NOISE TERROR is widely considered one of the earliest and most influential European grindcore bands, and particularly the forefathers of crust punk. Following a slew of full-lengths, EPs, splits and live offerings as well as a revolving door of personnel shifts, the band shows zero sign of mellowing out or slowing things down three decades since their initial formation. Heavy-as-fuck and pissed off grind is what defines the ENT sound, and this album further cements the band’s status as the reigning kings of all that is heavy. Hardcore punk, crust or grind? This is EXTREME NOISE TERROR. Their new self-titled LP features twelve of the band’s fastest, most intense and blatantly catchy tracks to date. Proclaims frontman Dean Jones of the recording, “Thirty years of pissed off hardcore punk madness and mayhem condensed into thirteen brand new tracks, the most savage ENT yet! If this doesn’t blow your head off nothing will!”
Extreme Noise Terror will see release via Willowtip Records November 5th, 2015. Preorder your copy RIGHT HERE.
