Norse noise rock doesn’t come much heavier than Noxagt. Having lost part of my cerebral cortex and range of hearing to a gig they did in Hackney Wick in the early 2000’s I can personally attest to that.
With that in mind, we are thrilled to be releasing the debut full-length LP by Noxagt-alumni in the form of new band 'Burning Axis'. Joining forces with a member of 'Golden Oriole' (and of course, featuring a member of 'No Balls') we basically have the Norwegian poster children for ear-protection.
What you have here is five songs of intensely brooding instrumentation, with the lineup formed from percussion, guitar, and viola. Meant to be played loud, it’s heavy and crushing and totally hypnotic and all those good adjectives that you want to have spring to mind when you think of these guys and their musical acumen.
'Burning Axis' will be touring Europe (and hopefully the UK) in October.
