Baltimore thrash metal puritans, NOISEM, have been touring regionally across North America all year — most recently assaulting the US and Canada with Skeletonwitch and The Black Dahlia Murder for an entire month this Fall — all in support of their Agony Defined debut, which A389 Recordings fired into the public in June.
Just announced last week was the confirmed lineup and routing for the upcoming third Decibel Magazine Tour, which will see NOISEM directly supporting The Black Dahlia Murder, Gorguts and Carcass for three weeks across North America from March 18th through April 13th, 2014. When asked to comment on the band’s invite to take part in the brutal cross-country venture with such acts, NOISEM guitarist Sebastian Phillips keeps his thoughts on the tour perfectly succinct: “Dream come true. Period.” More details on the tour including ticket info can be found HERE.
At virtually the same time the tour was announced, Decibel Magazine released their newest issue which listed NOISEM‘s bludgeoning debut LP, Agony Defined, as the #9 album of 2013, stating of the album: “Leave it to a group of teenagers from Baltimore to blow the cobwebs off of thrash metal and shake the genre at its very foundation… The wellspring of catchy riffs is seemingly endless on Agony Defined; no band employed the wammy bar better in 2013.”
NOISEM will rip through Richmond, Virginia supporting Pig Destroyer later this month, and in mid-January will take part in day two of the A389 X Bash in Baltimore, Maryland alongside Integrity, All Out War, Bloodlet, Weekend Nachos, Power Trip, Pick Your Side, Homewrecker, Empire Of Rats and more.
At a recent studio session the newest Converse X Decibel Collaboration installment was filmed with the NOISEM crew. Watch the bros shred; DO IT HERE.
