Aural Atrocities: The Story So Far

Noxious Noize! was started as a record label in 2007 as a means to promote local music & to help bring back the music scene in post-Katrina New Orleans. It has since turned into a platform for booking bands, setting up tours & promoting local events as well.

Shows have been booked for loads of bands, small & large... From locals Eyehategod to international acts like Pentagram & The Vibrators.

Initially, the intention was to only release local music. After our scene started coming back, it was time to start focusing on bands from all over the place. The first four releases have since sold out. Below are links to download them in their entirety, just click the band name & record title.

4-song EP. 45rpm.
Debut release by this noisy New Orleans hardcore/punk band. Features members of Hellkontroll, Crowbar, Ritual Killer & Psychon Vex. You'll need earplugs for this one!

2-song single. 33 rpm.
2 songs by this one-man funeral doom/black metal project from France.

500 hand-numbered copies pressed. 100 came on white vinyl with a patch, 400 came on orange vinyl. Both versions included a button.

2-song single. 33 rpm.
Baton Rouge/New Orleans-based Thou. Released shortly before the release of their second album "Peasant". These 2 songs were also included on the CD version of that album.

500 copies pressed. First 100 came on pastel yellow marble vinyl, last 400 came on standard yellow vinyl. 29 copies of the standard yellow version came in an alternate printed black & white sleeve. the regular sleeve is silk-screened thick black cardstock with silver ink. Both sleeves have a 7"x7" booklet attached to the inside.
10-song EP. 33 rpm.
Debut release by this 2-piece (at the time) Louisiana based crasher crust band. One of the most intense live bands out there too.

1000 copies pressed. 250 on white/black split vinyl with sticker & button (only available locally & in Japan) & 750 on standard black vinyl.
