The Iron Point

Öffnen Sie iTunes, um Hörproben zu wählen und Musik zu kaufen und zu laden.


When Kjetil D. Brandsdal first laid down the primal folk noise collage of his early albums and tapes, he didn't really come across as a lightning rod for heavy underground Norse rock. He was talented, of that there was no doubt, but hearing the murky noodling he began with would never prepare anyone for the brutal heat of Noxagt. Texture plays a big part both in Brandsdal's solo work and his role as bassist for Noxagt, although with the latter much of the knotty sonics are provided by viola player Nils Erga, whose heavy bow elicits an endless stream of crossed tones and screaming high-end frenzy. The rhythm section of Brandsdal and drummer Jan Christian L. Kyvik is meaty enough, driving the songs with a thick undercurrent of menace and allowing Erga to dig in to the muck with them or soar over it with a plucked solo or a droning, string-scraping melody. The first half of Iron Point plays like a hard rock suite for heavy metal viola, but it's only during the second half that the unusual three-piece begins to sound like something more than an arty novelty act. Stuck firmly in the middle of the album, "Blast from the Past" picks up the previously seasick, head-nodding, caveman rhythms with a blastbeat that hints at metal but sounds more like labelmates Lightning Bolt. Later, "Svartevatn" continues the metal references, but this time it's full-on Venom worshiping black metal that bubbles up from Noxagt's pot. The only time vocals interrupt the instrumental mayhem is on "Kling No Klokka," a weary and atmospheric traditional Norwegian folk tune with the old-as-dirt singing of Hagbard Heien. All of these random sparks lead to a glorious finish with a near unrecognizable version of Pearls Before Swine's "Regions of May." In a world where people constantly bemoan the lack of new ideas and approaches, citing that "it's all been done before," Noxagt prove that such sentiments are far from true. There's a new metal being forged and Iron Point is surely one of its calling cards.


Gegründet: 1999

Taking a cue from American noise acts like Lightning Bolt, Pink & Brown, and Death from Above 1979, Noxagt (pronounced "noxact") leads the Nor-wave invasion with bass, drums, and viola. Massively heavy while maintaining some of the pomp and bombast of Scandinavian metal, the trio creates a dark, vast wall of doom. Formed in Norway in 1999, originally as a solo project for bassist Kjetil D. Brandsdal, Noxagt became a power trio in 2001 with Nils Erga on viola and Jan Christian L. Kyvik on drums....
