Ad Noiseam at the 2010 Assymetry festival
Monday, 22 February 2010 13:50


It's been quite some time since his mix of breakcore and grindcore hasn't graced european soil: Drumcorps is back to Europe for a few live dates in the Spring. Besides his Barcelona, Hamburg, Nürnberg, and Brussels dates, make sure not to miss his participation to an Ad Noiseam night of sort at this year's edition of the very nice Asymmetry festival in Wroclaw, Poland.

The festival's opening night on the 29th of April is almost 100% Ad Noiseam, with Drumcorps sharing the stage with Bong-Ra and The Mt Fuji Doomjazz Corporation (as well as the non-Ad Noiseam but still well worth a listen Zu). More information here and on the festival's page. The whole thing goes on till the 2nd of May, and features long-haired favorites such as Justin Broadrick's Jesu, Years Of No Light, Shrinebuilders and more.

Finally, if you live in Wroclaw, note that Enduser is also playing there a month later, on May 28th.

Pre-orders now taken for Matta's "The Lost"
Friday, 19 February 2010 00:11

2010 will be a heavy and bassy year for Ad Noiseam, and also one rich in this thick, black material one calls vinyl. The best way to prove it is to announce that the first release on Ad Noiseam for 2010 is now available for pre-order, is on vinyl, and is very heavy.

"The Lost", the debut 12" by UK's Matta (adn126), will be released on Ad Noiseam on March 8th, as part of the "Below 100 Hz" record series (along with some other). A very heavy three tracker, it present a very raw, twisted and mean take at dubstep, still balanced between heavy wobble and more aerial beats. One track on this record  is called "Mass" and, take our word for it, it's an adequate title.

It can now be pre-ordered directly from the label, in both its vinyl and digital version. The record will drop in a few weeks and, by pre-ordering it, you're making sure that you will be among the first to get your copy of Matta's first step of their ear-domination.

All the information about Matta's "The Lost" (adn126) is available here. You can pre-order the record over here, and the digital version over there.

Finally, in the pure tradition of dubstep promotion on the intertubes, here's after the break a "video" presenting excerpts from all tracks on this record .

Want to get an idea of what Niveau Zero, a new signing on Ad Noiseam from Paris is about? While we wait for his first full length album, "In_Sect" to come out in a couple of months, here's a video of his floor-packing set on the 13th of February at Glazart in Paris. And there's more to see after the break.

Matta - The Lost - adn126

Matta - The Lost - adn126 With their début record, Matta bring the excitement back to dubstep. Shifting genres, adding weight, sharpening the production: this young duo come up with an immense three tracker that taps in a variety of style and unite influences into an enormous and coherent release. Not for weak soundsystems, but clearly for all bass addicts. (Get this on 12" / as mp3)

AZ-Rotating between a daydream nation and a teenage riot
Thursday, 11 February 2010 22:39

All the information available about this is in Spanish, but it's still very worth mentionning: Ad Noiseam's spanish wizkid AZ-Rotator was recently invited to perform at the opening of an exhibition in Madrid about and with Sonic Youth, during which he played his own reworking of some of this band's material.

Here is an article and a video about this event, and one can check some pictures of the whole thing here. Finally, a podcast of the whole thing can be heard over there.

Finally, Madrilenian readers might note that AZ-Rotator has also been asked to perform a set during something set up by Radio3 during the contemporary art fair ARCO 2010. We couldn't find any details on this event's website, but watch out for the program if you happen to visit this event.
Broken Note and Teknoist t-shirts.
Tuesday, 19 January 2010 15:23

They are finally there. Announced last decade, the brand new Broken Note and Teknoist t-shirts are there, printed and in stock. They are the first Ad Noiseam shirts to be printed entirely on
100% sweat-shop free and organic cotton
. As explained in an earlier post, we've finally decided to jump the gun and stop producing shirts whose production we could not agree with. No child-labor and ecological devastation overe here.

The Broken Note shirts show the band's logo and come in two colors. The Teknoist's ones recommend you a way of dealing with zombies, commemorating the "...Like A Hurricane Made Of Zombies" album, with prints on the front and the back. See below for some pictures of both shirts.

Moreover, note that some older shirts have been reprinted, all on the same fair-trade / organic fabric: the Ad Noiseam hoodies are back, ready to keep you warm this winter, as well as the "The Devil Lies Below 100Hz", "Enjoy Noise" and Ad Noiseam logo t-shirts.

Raoul Sinier - The savior, alternative rush

There had already been two video trailers for Raoul Sinier's latest album, the "Tremens Industry" CD / DVD (Ad Noiseam adn115), and you had already been able to watch online one of the videos from the DVD. Guess what, a second one has now been uploaded for everybody to see. A tale of robots, spaceships and mice, "The Savior (alternative rush)" should give you another insight at Raoul Sinier's video art in general, and "Tremens Industry" in particular. Remember, this DVD is packed with videos of this kind.

You can watch this video here on Vimeo, or just scroll down. Oh, and remember that Raoul Sinier's also releasing a graphic novel these days.

Even more, the CD coming with this magazine features tracks by both Detritus and Wilt, taken from their respective recent albums.

Now, what's your excuse again for not learning French and reading this magazine?

Still in French, the first issue of the free pdf magazine Essmaa features, among many others, a new interview with Raoul Sinier and a lengthy review of the man's earlier "Huge Samurai Radish" CD. This first issue can be downloaded for free here .
