Wormskull - Sound Of Hell - adn144
Wednesday, 08 June 2011 18:48

Wormskull - Sound Of Hell - Ad Noiseam adn144First, Wormskull is an all star band formed by Bong-Ra, Deformer, Balazs Pandi and Eni-Less. But it's also a full frontal sonic assault that taps from years of experience in the metal and electronic scenes to come up with a high-energy, moshpit-packing devil of an album. Don't believe what you were told: it's not a team of Soviet scientists who recorded the sounds of hell, but a quartet of angry, experienced musicians who love their metal dark, their beats punishing, and their atmospheres abysmal. Heavy riffs, complex drumming, electronic arrangements that have their roots in Bong-Ra's breakcore: Wormskull is nothing for the weak of heart. (get this on LP + CD / on CD / as digital files)

10 Years Ad Noiseam - Paris / Batofar - June 1st, 2011

The 4th Ad Noiseam 10th birthday party took place a couple of nights ago at the Batofar in Paris, and was an incredible experience: a boat packed from wall to wall, moving along the non-stop dancing, long queues at the door, and an awesome, friendly and very supportive atmosphere to go on with excellent sets from all the participating artists. Again: thanks to all those who made this event possible. Next stop on July 9th in Beirut, Lebanon.

There are a lot of souvenirs from this party: first two articles about the parties, first on Spot Mag and then on Modern Zeuhl (both in French), and below are an audio interview with yours truely for Tours's Radio Beton (about 20 minutes of the why, how and what of Ad Noiseam) and videos of live sets by Igorrr, Matta, Balkansky & Loop Stepwalker and Niveau Zero. This will hopefully bring a smile back to all those of you who attended this event, and motivate the others to come to the forthcoming parties of the kind (we'll have an announcement about this soon), and this is all behind the cut.

More Utrecht birthday goodness with videos of Niveau Zero live.

Niveau Zero live

More sweet souvernirs of the very recent 10 Years Ad Noiseam birthday party in Utrecht (NL) last week-end: you already could listen to the whole set by Funckarma, and you can now watch two videos of Niveau Zero rocking the crowd (like a hurricane) with his mixture of broken dubstep, metal-attitude and acute stage experience.

Both videos are below the cut. Note that you should check out the Ad Noiseam live dates to see when Niveau Zero is playing in your neck of the woods. Special messages to everybody in Paris: the man is part of the line-up of the 10 Years Ad Noiseam birthday party tomorrow at the Batofar in Paris.

French print spotlight: Ad Noiseam in Trax and Noise.
Monday, 30 May 2011 16:48


Excuse the self-congratulory post, but it might be relevant for anybody reading French to know that they can find double pages interviews with yours truely in the latest issues of both Trax and Noise (which, for those of you who don't live in France, are the two main electronic / alternative music magazines in France). Both magazines had the good idea to sit down and ask some questions relative to Ad Noiseam 10th birthday, and the celebration taking place this Wednesday in Paris.

Both magazines are available for sale at the moment (in France mostly, I presume). Images are posted above, but I won't put the interviews online, as print press definitely need our support. So go out, buy and read the May issue of Trax and the May / June one of Noise. Sounds like something you can easily do on the way to this week's 10 Years Ad Noiseam party in Paris.

Listen to Roel Funcken's set from the Ad Noiseam birthday party in Utrecht.

We're still recovering from the excellent, loud and crazy 10 Years Ad Noiseam party that took place in Utrecht last Saturday (and preparing for the one in Paris on Wednesday, June 1st), and here's something which will help make the transition back to regular life easier: Roel Funcken recorded the set he played at this event, which you can now listen to it here. It features quite a few tracks from his "Vade" album, as well as new material. Enjoy.

Ad Noiseam supports and congratulates Amnesty International.

As most people reading these lines will know, Ad Noiseam is turning 10 year old at the moment, and celebrating this with various parties accross the world. Today (May 28th) is also the 50th birthday of the NGO Amnesty International, whose inception dates back to May 28th, 1961.

Ever since Ad Noiseam started directly selling mp3 of the label's releases on this site, we've been donating a fix sum on each digital sale to Amnesty. As we congratulate Amnesty International on its 50th birthday, today is also a good occasion to be transparent about these donations. A breakdown of this all is to be found below.

Thank you for all of you who took part of this program . And don't worry, we're not stopping it.
