The searing, malicious blitz of Agony Defined, the debut LP from Baltimore-based thrash division NOISEM — formerly known as Necropsy — is set to break loose on June 11th via A389 Recordings. The riot-inducing whiplash of the album boasts high-octane death/thrash with a filthy and crispy delivery, unloading nine tracks in under twenty-six minutes, every attack surging with massive divebomb guitar solos and punishing beats.
Massive independent media portal NPR, National Public Radio, has offered to bring a new NOISEM track to the masses, and today the rasping, bludgeoning title and closing track to Agony Defined has been featured as the “Viking’s Choice” in this week’s All Things Considered podcast. “Agony Defined” charges out of the gate with a crushing stomp, then comes blazing alive with the incredible face-melting solos and rabid, jackhammering riff and percussion this young act teems with.
Unleash “Agony Defined” via NPR’s All Things Considered RIGHT HERE.
Also fire up the album’s opening rager “Voices In The Morgue” and sixth track “Severed” at the A389 Bandcamp.
A389 will release NOISEM‘s Agony Defined on CD, LP and digital download on June 11th; fans of Audiopain, Havok, Toxic Holocaust and the originators/masters of the style will not be disappointed, and all nonbelievers will be extinguished.
