Noism To Release ± 8/26

Crucial Blast will release the debut CD from Japan’s instrumental avant-death shred machine NOISM on August 26th. Noism was formed by guitarist Yoshiro Hamazaki and programmer Tomoyuki Akiyama in 1999 in Tokyo, Japan, and from the beginning the band has  focused on creating intensely complex and crushing death/grind using programmed drums, brain-melting riffs and dissonant shred, which is chopped up and processed into abstract death blasts that defy physics. Early on, Noism utilized vocals and bass guitar but as the band continued to develop their unique, glitched-out chop shop of Planet Mu-style beats delivered at truly meth’d levels of chaos fused with sweeping technical death metal, those more “organic” elements were phased out. The band self released a few demos, like 2000’s Brutality And Complexity, released songs digitally through the Net, and appeared on the 2006 compilation Drummachinegun from Relapse Records, but prior to 2008, they had yet to release a real body of work. When Tomoyuki relocated to the US in 2002, the members of Noism began to compose new music long-distance through file sharing, and finally created their first mini-album, ± , which is being issued through Crucial Blast in summer of 2008.
