Noisem at Maryland Deathfest 2013 (more by Fred Pessaro)
Noisem, Baltimore's death/thrash steamroller, is wasting no time hitting the streets again. After supporting Carcass, The Black Dahlia Murder, and Gorguts on the North American Decibel Magazine Tour, Noisem will now slide into the headliners seat for a nine date roadtrip of the East Coast. Joining them is Jarhead Fertilizer, a dystopic powerviolence pain-maker including members of Full of Hell. The tour blows into NYC on May 13 at The Acheron with Skullshitter in tow. Tickets for that show are on sale now. All dates are listed below.
Previously known as Necropsy, Noisem took on their new moniker in 2013, releasing a 25 minute core-powered assault titled Agony Defiled on A389 Records that same year. Their style is a synthesis of the crossover of yore, rekindling the spark of the nimble Wehrmacht while grinding away any fat that might slow them down. Recently, the group participated in the Decibel flexi series ("Defiled") and shacked up on a split 7" of covers with Occultist. Their choice of odes? A pitch-perfect blast through grindfather Repulsion's "Slaughter of the Innocent."
All dates are listed, along with streams of Agony Defiled and "Slaughter of the Innocent," below...
