Ad Noiseam turns 5 year old, and celebrates by presenting a triple pack compilation, with one new new track by past, present and future Ad Noiseam artists, as well as videos by almost half of them. More than a collection of various material thrown together, “Ad Noiseam 2001-2006” is a testimony of what Ad Noiseam is about, and how the label has grown into a melting pot of sounds, genres and feelings, focusing on music quality without ever embracing fashions and scenes.
Launched in April 2001 with the “Krach Test” triple CD compilation, Ad Noiseam celebrates its fifth birthday and 60th release with another massive compilation, in the form of two CDs and a DVD packaged in a tall triple digipack and packed with almost four hours of new music and video.
Over the course of five years, Ad Noiseam has released records and CD of a wide variety of styles, giving headaches to reviewers trying to pigeon-hole the label into a small category. From the melancholic guitars of Magwheels to the hectic breaks of Enduser, from the deep atmospheres of Wilt to the booty-shaking bass of Mothboy, Ad Noiseam invites its listeners to sit down and enjoy the variety of the label with “Ad Noiseam 2001-2006”. A musical ride, this project is also a way to look at what has been done, and what Ad Noiseam stands for.
These five years have been a hard ride, but one rich in musical quality, in surprises and in evolution. Ad Noiseam is proud to be able to invite you to take a look at the past and the present, and dive head first into its future.
