Hydra – Power

Hydra is an absolute favorite project of Noisextra and we felt is was a fine time to explore “Power.” We dive into this classic tape on Bloodlust! from 1996 and are filled with every emotion throughout the discussion of this cassette. The world lost Greg Scott in 2003, but he forever lives on in this and all his releases. All you need is force.

Cock E.S.P. – Greatest Dicks

We start off 2023 discussing some very serious noise artists with Cock E.S.P. “Greatest Dicks”” from 1996 on the one and only Pure. We get appropriately foul and dirty while discussing one of the most seminal, deep thinking and intelligent noise bands of all time. Cock E.S.P. mean it this time and they are definitely making it their business. Happy New Cock Noise Year!

Merzbow & Christoph Heeman – Sleeper Awakes on the Edge of the Abyss

A collaboration that has come up on two recent Seven Inch Sundays, and one that was requested multiple times in our early podcast days, Merzbow & Christoph Heemann “Sleeper Awakes on the Edge of Abyss” is this week’s focus. An interesting and unexpected work, this album settles in quickly and brings up as many images as it does questions. It’s a great look at ’80s Merzbow through the lens of Christoph Heemann.

Atrax Morgue feat. Morder Machine – DeathShow

Our yearly Marco Corbelli episode has arrived and this time we went for something a little different — Morder Machine “DeathShow.” A project that existed directly alongside Atrax Morgue, Morder Machine utilized a bit more structure and rhythm without losing any darkness and obsession. We pull quotes directly about Morder Machine and relay Marco’s thoughts on the project. Additionally, we continue our tradition of choosing three Italian horror movies to highlight before discussing the album. Welcome to DeathShow.

Discussing Eric La Casa and Lionel Marchetti with Erik Hoffman (Groundfault)

Erik Hoffman was cool enough to have us to his home to discuss two landmark Ground Fault CDs in the field recording realm: Eric La Casa “The Stones of the Threshold” and Lionel Marchetti “Portrait D’Un Glacier.” Erik relays some thoughts on the albums as well as working with each artist. We get into the importance of field recordings, where they can take you, and how they fit into the noise world.

MSBR – Destructive Locomotion

A new year should only begin with a classic and that’s what we had searing through the speakers with MSBR “Destructive Locomotion (Dedicated to Chizuo Matsumoto)” on Pure. Chizuo Matsumoto was known to the world as Shoko Asahara, the leader of Aum Shinrikyo. This is a noise/true crime episode, in the vein our Murder Series episodes, as we dig into this incredible album as a background to the story of Aum Shinrikyo and Tokyo sarin subway attacks.

Macronympha – Intensive Care

Macronympha deliver one of the definitive American Noise albums with “Intensive Care” on Self Abuse from 1998. We received a letter from Joe Roemer and relay info on the album and Macronympha directly from the source. Primal sound steamrolls the status quo world. Blow out every little sound and submit to total noise.
