Noisem To Hit The Road In February

Noisem rapidly made a name for themselves as one of the premier bands in the US death metal scene, and that was when most of the members were just teenagers. I remember seeing these dudes utterly destroy a record shop last August and I think I might still be a little bit deaf from that show. Noisem are not to be fucked with.

So now everyone’s favorite Baltimore death metal masters are hitting the road again for a week’s worth of dates with DC metallic punk stalwarts Ilsa. If the poster is to be believed (And trust me, it is) every single show on this run is going to be sick. Sure there aren’t many dates, but the ones that there are are bound to be memorable. These are going to be among the bands’ last dates until August, so as the old saying goes – be there or be square!

Dates:

February 12th: Baltimore, MD @ Ottobar

February 13th: Philadelphia, PA @ Kung Fu Necktie

February 14th: SECRET SHOW!!!

February 15th: New York, New York @ St Vitus (With Coffins)

February 16th: Montclair, New Jersey @ Meatlocker

  • Edward/Breegrodamus™

    I caught Noisem live at St. Vitus when I was in New York last summer. They did, indeed, destroy. Caught Iron Reagan too.

    • I saw Iron Reagan when they played with Napalm Death. They are fucking great live.

      • Edward/Breegrodamus™

        Yeah they were a fun band to see live!

      • ProfoundHatred

        Better live performance than Waste imo, which is saying something.

  • Bossicus thee Rossicus

    Would love to be at that Baltimore show.

  • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

    God damn, are these dudes young.

    • Edward/Breegrodamus™

      Full of Hell too.

      • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

        Yeah, I never really checked them out, but that above album is ripping.

        • Edward/Breegrodamus™

          They look like little kids to me, lol

          • I have an old live DVD of Decapitated from back in the day. Those kids were still in school when they were touring. Crazy.

          • Dubs

            I think that’s why Vitek is so widely lauded. He was so young to be playing the way he did.

          • Yeah, I still love watching him play to this very day. Real loss of talent.

          • Dubs

            Agreed!

          • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

            Was lucky enough to see the original lineup and meet a few of them at Milwaukee Metal Fest 2000.

          • Holy shit. Right after Winds of Creation. You met them when they were really young. Damn.

          • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

            Fuck, now that I think of it, it might have been 2001. Anyway, here’s the flyer from the 2000 show.

          • Fuck! That’s a great line-up. Hahahaha! Lamb of God is in the fine print.

          • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

            Haha, so they are.

          • more beer

            Where they belong.

          • Dave Vincent’s Perm

            Hate Eternal are above Opeth and Behemoth. This pleases me.

          • Sir Tapir The Based

            Winds of Creation >>>>>>>>>>
            The only really good album they made imo.

          • Yup… I agree.

          • Dubs

            I saw them in 2012. They were good live, but not quite what they used to be.

          • That was with just the one original guitarist right?

          • Dubs

            I believe so. The singer kind of annoyed me, honestly.

          • I sort of remember the fuss about that guy. I haven’t cared about Decapitated since Organic though.

          • more beer

            I am passing on seeing them tonight.

          • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

            Reminds me of when Decapitated came out.

    • I know right. How can you trust anyone under the age 35? Amirite?

    • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

      Derp.

    • ProfoundHatred

      More than likely Jersey, probably Trenton or Asbury.

      • ProfoundHatred

        Nvm, didn’t notice they were already playing the meatlocker.

    • TrickleDownOvTacoKvltRiff

      I dont think thats what he told her…

      • Oooooooooooooooo!!!

        • TrickleDownOvTacoKvltRiff

          #tapdat?

  • These riffs are good.

    GL

  • Spear

    These dudes have gotten a lot better since Agony Defined, both on record and live. If you have the chance, see them.

  • Would love to go to the 2/16 show since it is close by. Probably can’t go because it’s a Tuesday night and because adult responsibilities.

    • Edward/Breegrodamus™

      I’m gonna see Godspeed You! Black Emperor in February, on a Thursday, which I can do since my schedule changed so radically.

      • Capra Hircus Hubertus

        Godspeed is amazing live, maybe better than on record.

        • RJA

          I cannot second this enough – enjoy the show Edward.

        • Edward/Breegrodamus™

          I just picked up tickets! Two tickets were spendy but/and I got gouged on ticket fees by the venue.

          • more beer

            This is why I typically either buy pre-sales from one of the local bands playing. Or go to the venue box office.

      • Enjoy Edward! Trying to get out to as many as I can since just about everybody comes through here. Saturdays are usually the only days of the week that I can swing it.

  • ChuggaChuggaDeedleyDoo

    I saw them a couple years ago when they opened for Carcass and they were a sloppy mess. The hype eludes me, but perhaps they’ve gotten better as a live band since then.

    • Spear

      Was that on the Decibel tour? (Black Dahlia Murder and Gorguts were on that as well)

      • ChuggaChuggaDeedleyDoo

        Yeah. That was a rad show

        • Spear

          Most definitely. I saw Noisem on another tour with Exhumed a few months after that in a smaller venue and they sounded much better. Don’t know if they spent that time practicing or if it was just experience, but it was a pretty drastic improvement.

  • Dubs

    Ilsa are pretty rad if memory serves.

  • The solos are nothing to write home about, though.

    GL

  • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

    The singer has a huge Martin van Drunen-influence in his growling. Always a good thing.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U9tdqYmaLOk

    • I love this album.

      • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

        My favourite Pestilence album by far. Testimony was still pretty good, but suffered a bit in the vocal department. Van Drunen’s growls were just feral on Consuming Impulse.
        Somewhere around Spheres the band started with this full on blatant Atheist/Cynic worship. Testimony was already quite jazzy, but listenable. I didn’t like the direction they took with Spheres at all.

        • Well put, that’s how I feel. Consuming Impulse is perfect. Definity my go to Pestilence album/

          • Scrimm

            Your feelings are correct.

  • mmm, i’m hearing lots of glorious guitar solos! take note, other bands…

    • Sir Tapir The Based

      Guitar solos <<<<<<<<<<<<<

      • i found the dweeb!

        • Is does not take much to get him to poke outta his hole 🙂

          • Sir Tapir The Based

            I’ll poke something into your hole.

          • *shakes my head*

          • Sir Tapir The Based

            There’ll be something else shaking when I slide up your ass.

          • You need some Skull Fist in your life.

            https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z-c73O-bpMc

          • Sir Tapir The Based

            You need some fists up your ass.

          • Your infatuation with buttz is lol-able.

            GL

          • Sir Tapir The Based

            You’re making me do this.

          • You are wholly responsible for yourself, Tapir.

          • you need some metal up your ass!!!!

          • Scrimm
          • 48″ bar. NICE

          • Scrimm

            Yeah it’s impressive.

          • those bastards will jerk you around hard if you are not careful!

          • Scrimm

            I bet. I try to minimize the time I have to use tools capable of dismembering me. Having one digit reattached was enough.

          • whoa! really???

          • Scrimm

            Yeah a pinky. It wasn’t a power tool though. It was a folding chair.

          • lol. Life is a bitch sometimes!

          • Sir Tapir The Based

            but Metal Sucks ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

          • bringin’ it all around

        • Sir Tapir The Based

          You looked into the mirror again?

    • Scrimm

      We have zero.

      • but you have sax solos

        • Scrimm

          DOWNVOTED!

          I just can’t play them for shit. I know all of one lead. Who knows though, a couple might sneak on there before we finish.

          • my general theory is that if a band can keep the listener engaged, then guitar solos aren’t necessary. i can think of several bands in which — though the riffs may be great — the songs are formulaic enough that they need something interesting injected into them. this might piss a lot of people off (and believe me, zero fucks are given because it’s just my humble opinion) but many Dissection songs i’ve heard need a little boost in the creativity department: a solo here and there wouldn’t hurt.

          • Scrimm

            It’s a fine line.

          • from what i’ve heard of WoL so far, consider me fully engaged!

          • Scrimm

            We’re back at it next week

          • TrickleDownOvTacoKvltRiff

            Rules of Rockin’ out with your cock out:
            1. Every song needs a solo, always in every circumstance.

            And so it is and so it shall be done.

          • you know… you’re right! without the solo, air guitar isn’t as effective. plus people in the crowd need something to wave their little fingers to. and let’s not forget tech death, a genre that probably wouldn’t exist without the solo!

  • Their newest album absolutely RIPS and is more on the grind side of things. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i4AJAihgSsg

    • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

      The feedback is such a nice touch.

  • ProfoundHatred

    I’ve seen them three times, and they keep getting better. Last time the singer was in the pit losing his mind the entire set. Always fucking awesome.

    • godawful

      • That is what I thought. But I am still listening 10 mins in.

        ¯_(ツ)_/¯

    • Dave Vincent’s Perm

      The Toilet would be a safer site if we all had guns.

      • I have a plethora. I do not know what you are talking about 🙂

        • TrickleDownOvTacoKvltRiff

          what kind of gun is that?

          • here’s a hint: one’s on his left, one’s on his right 😉

          • TrickleDownOvTacoKvltRiff

            Boom, instant gunshow.

          • huehue plethora mean “a lot” 🙂

          • TrickleDownOvTacoKvltRiff

            ok thanks…more is better!

          • Óðinn

            a Multitude™, I’d guess.

          • TrickleDownOvTacoKvltRiff

            a cornacopia of sorts…

      • Óðinn

        Sarah Palin believes in more guns, so it must be safe. 😉

          ‘You cannot change the second amendment!’

          Yes you can… It’s called an amendment.

  • TrickleDownOvTacoKvltRiff

    I saw them at the Best Buy Theater in NYC on the Decibel tour a few years back. The mix must have been bad because they sounded like a wall of noise and not in a good way. Anyway, I wanted a Gorguts T shirt and went to the stand after their set. There were a few Noisem shirts and Gorguts shirts on the table and I asked the dude behind the table for a Gorguts shirt. He looked pissed off and said “I’m with Noisem”. I waited for Luc to come back to the table and had a great talk. I guess the kid at the table was Sebastian. LOL….oops.

    • more beer

      I’ve see them a couple of times. They sounded the same way you described on the Decibel Tour here also. Thinking about it they sounded that way at the first Denver Black Sky too.

      • TrickleDownOvTacoKvltRiff

        Ok thanks. Not just
        me then. I was wondering why they were hyped so much..sounded like a really new garage
        band.

  • CyberneticOrganism

    Good shit. I feel like that’s all I can say lately about good shit, but it’s good shit.

    Also, lol @ the matching guitar straps

  • Waynecro

    I never got into Noisem, though I do think their second album is better than their first one. I don’t thrash very often, but when I do, I hyperthrash (Nylithia>>>>>>>).
