Just seeing if anyone out there is into noise rock. I'm always down for suggestions of good noise rock I should be on the look out for.

Some of my favorites are Gravitar, Calvin Krime, Wolf Eyes, Princess Dragonmom. I also like grindcore like Agoraphobic Nosebleed, The Locust, The Swarm, A.C. and Melt Banana.

I have heard of a grand total of zero of those bands...although I bet The Locust and The Swarm probably sound a lot alike.

Kid 606 is pretty good. Oval I like, and of course, Autechre (EP7 especially). That's pretty standard stuff, though.

Check out Andrea Harper - I really dig her stuff, especially Kiss My Arp.

If you're into the hardcore noise stuff, I know I few folks who are REAllY into it. I'll check with them and get back to you.

Not to sound like I'm 32, but what defines "Noise Rock"? It sounds like "Speed Metal by Bands I've Never Heard Of".

Well, its depend.

=Gravitar MP3s (artistdirect.com)

Edit: I see some advertisement that is dangerously close to the actual gravitar songs, so be warned if you hear something that doesn't sound "noisy".

That site has some short Gravitar clips (Dearborn WHAT!). To put noise rock into words, think of it as heavily distorted guitars, bass, keyboards, drum machines, etc. but it's not *just* noise like an ambient noise band, they actually have melodies...of a sort. Often there is no vocals, but it depends on the band. To a first time listener, many noise rock songs would appear to be "just dicking around" but to the seasoned noise vet. they can distinguish between bands and songs.

I believe The Locust are good although I think they ripped off slipnot although they are somewhat different but not different enough for my taste.

Hovercraft, they put out two albums I think. One of which, the later one, received a broader distribution. I thought they were, interesting.

Godspeed You Black Emperor! might qualify as a noise band, though it swings to orchestral almost... but I dunno if I'd pigeonhole them as such.

Melt Banana is a great one, with the lead singer, and their guitarist, who just uses his slide, and rocks on and off different effects pedals they should be given one heard. Though they are definately not everyone's cup of tea.
