Laurel Noose - University District

>> Monday, November 28, 2016

There's no discogs page about this artist but I think I've read somewhere he/she is from the US. It's very well done pedal & effects driven noise album. Also crunchy as The Rita but a bit less in your face about it. Fairly underrated stuff.

Get it here.


The Rita - Sea Wolf Leviathan

Hour long trek among the walls of harsh noise. Surprisingly very diverse wall of noise at that with a lot of change in "tempo" and "dynamics". So far this is the best release of The Rita that I've heard. Very lovely and crunchy noise album.

Get it here.


Astro ‎- Acid Safari

>> Sunday, November 27, 2016

Released back in 1998 this is one of the earliest Astro records that were put out. You can still taste the CCCC influence in the sound but it sounds much more upfront and much more intense than his other projects.

Sounds like a laser fight in a volcano.

Get it here.


C.C.C.C. - Recorded Live At Broken Life Festival, Taipei, Taiwan September 9th 1995

>> Friday, November 25, 2016

Another live album by C.C.C.C.

This one was recorded much better so you'll be able to hear all sorts of sounds in all (or most) of their glory. It's also a much more lively and dynamic set this time featuring more abrasive and punchy noise. They also go wild with the synths. Weird how a much shorter lineup yields a much more intense sound.

Get it here.


C.C.C.C. - Community Center Cyber Crash / Live in Pittsburgh

Hello friends. How are things? I wrote a short FAQ to let you know what's happening but more importantly I'll be uploading stuff over the next few days (and hopefully beyond that).

For starters here's a neat little album I've picked up somewhere at some unknown time. It's a live album recorded back in 1994 by a well known group called C.C.C.C.

The quality of recording is not that good as it feels a little flat at times so the noise loses its charm at points but overall it's a nifty little live set recorded back in ye olden days. Expect landscapes of drifting phasing oscillators and lulling white noise background.

Get it here.

Hello? Anyone still around?

Anyone reading this? Should this blog be revived? Start over? Make a new version? Get with the times?

Let me know in the comments; if anyone is still around.

EDIT: Alright! Looks like people are still into this! Cool! I'll start posting once I clean up the site a bit and do some other menial tasks. I won't be deleting any old posts but I'll probably repost some things as I go through my catalog. The musical scope of the blog will also be widened (by just a bit) to musique concrete, free jazz and similar genres dissonant or unmusical genres. The emphasis will still be on noise though.


Caroliner ‎– I'm Armed With Quarts Of Blood (1990)

>> Thursday, July 12, 2012

There are times when I'm asked to provide some sort of summarization of what "noise" truly is...I guess as concept or art form specifically. And that's one tough, controversial answer. I usually say noise is a kind of agenda that incorporates, among other things, performance art with sound and aggression. There are some noise bands, we can hopefully agree, that do make a better impression live than on record. Maybe all of them. Maybe none of them. Whether you think Caroliner is a band that might be better live, since the theatrics are pretty interesting, or whether you think they are a de-facto noise band are questions that have, once again, controversial answers. I'll provide my answer to the latter: Caroliner is a fascinating "noise" band whose album incorporates rock, folk, silliness and other abstractions to form some sort of redneck duck soup. The variation of sound and atmosphere these tracks create are both wonderful and terrifying in equal amounts. If not exactly pristine "noise" sound, then Caroliner at least encapsulates the spirit of cacophony. If you want blood...Caroliner's got in in quarts.

Borbetomagus - Experience The Magic (1993)

>> Tuesday, April 24, 2012

I love record store day, which was last Saturday for those who don't know. And it so happens that this particular store contains an incredible amount of 'experimental' music, from musique concrete vinyls to Raster Norton CDs. I happened to spy this album from one of my favorite jazz groups (yes, jazz) and bought it, as is the ritual of record store. This might be the first time I've made a purchase of music in person, so it's important. (At least to me) Moral of the story: embrace record stores, while they can still put up a fight, 'cause Borbetomagus could be right around the corner.

As for the music, well, it's a furious jazzy noise hell, which is a good thing. And 'cause it's been a while, and I luv y'all, I'm giving this mf'er in FLAC

For those who actually bothered reading this, I'll give you some incredibly awesome breaking news: Terror Noise Audio is mentioned in the upcoming Duke University Press ethnography book "Japanoise: The Cultural Feedback of Global Media Circulation" I happen to know the professor who worked on it, so I'll be posting news about it every now and then. Only a few more steps to total noise world domination! 


Dagda Mor Mediafire Folder

Not much here, just three albums in a Mediafire folder.

I will slowly be moving everything to Mediafire. Slowly. Well, you know me.

Be seeing you.


Door - Destroy All

>> Monday, January 2, 2012

Experimental noise from 2007 on the Arbor CDr label (now just Arbor) which is an awesome label even though it hasn't put out much recently.

A: Small Wars (Boars)
B: All The Dirt (Dust)



Ex-Jesus / Impregnable split

>> Thursday, December 29, 2011

One of the first releases on the amazing Callow God label run by Jeff Witscher.  This is harsh noise at its most wonderful.  There's no reason to pass this one up.

A: Ex-Jesus - Merge Blacks 2
B: Impregnable - The Urge, The Ardor, The Unconquerable Will



Black Sand Desert / The Cherry Point - split

>> Wednesday, December 28, 2011

You should definitely know what you're getting with this one.  I love Phil's work but his side on this tape doesn't really do it for me for some reason.  The BSD track rules though.  This one is one of the more obscenely limited Troniks tapes, in an edition of 24.

A: Black Sand Desert - Trace
B: The Cherry Point - Fuck Death



Black Alberich - If She'd Take Me In Her Arms I'd Weep Like A Child

>> Tuesday, December 27, 2011

No lie.  Levels were MAXED.

What with everyone loving Alberich since Nato-Uniformen came out I thought people would appreciate this; what looks like his first release.



Budweiser Sprite - Pyramid Gold

Mysterious harsh noise from project with an awesome name; three untitled tracks



Stillbirth - self-titled

>> Sunday, December 25, 2011

This appears to be the first release from Luke Moldof, aka Stillbirth, and the second release on the Razors And Medicine label back from 2006.  Very low-key, slothful loops; reminds me a lot of Miles Haney's stuff.  Five untitled tracks.



Shallow Waters - I

The beginning.

A - Human Farm
B - The Enemy



Peter Brötzmann Octet – Machine Gun (1968)

Here's a piece of free jazz from mid-twentieth century that hits with as much fury as the newest Merzbow release- Machine Gun is exactly how its title describes. You don't have to have an interest in jazz to appreciate what happens here; just a general interest in the bellows of raw musical power.


(the liner notes of this album are awesome. give a read when you can.)


Hair Stylistics Monthly - Vol 1,2,3,4,5,6,10 (2008-2009)

Hair Stylisics, another project from Masaya Nakahara (Violent Onsen Geisha) put out a series of records starting 2008 each month. Here are a few that I've picked up over time, with additions from Bleak Bliss's blog. What I can say about the albums is the assortment of sounds manipulated is rather awesome and unique from other noise releases. get it!

Bleak bliss Vol 3, Vol 5, Vol 6,

You see we have 7 out of 13 discs from this collection. If you happen to have moar, please post em.


Opaque – The Cult Of Survivors (2007)

Opaque is another alias for Lea Cummings, known for Kylie Minoise project among others. Also runs a label called At War with False Noise. I think. Good stuff, good noise
