NOISEM Announces New Album: ‘Blossoming Decay’ Coming Spring 2015!!!


Baltimore’s NOISEM have announced the release of their anticipated sophomore album; ‘Blossoming Decay’ on A389 Recordings.

You can watch/hear a short trailer/previewing the new album here:

NOISEM 'BLOSSOMING DECAY' trailer from A389 Records on Vimeo.

Recorded by Kevin Bernsten (Developing Nations), mastered by Brad Boatright (Audiosiege), and with artwork by Billy Carnes, ‘Blossoming Decay’ is a nine song offering which picks up where NOISEM‘s debut long player ‘Agony Defined’ (2013) left off.


Consisting of all new material, ‘Blossoming Decay’ takes things into a darker, more frantic and aggressive musical direction while blurring the lines between death / thrash / grind and punk.

Watch NOISEM‘s most recent set from the A389 XI Anniversary Bash c/o Hate5Six below:

The band will also be doing a short run of dates with IRON REAGAN and ANGEL DU$T (see below for details) before diving into their full touring schedule for 2015.


A389 WELCOMES GENOCIDE PACT ‘Forged Through Domination’ LP/Digital Coming Summer 2015


Baltimore’s A389 Recordings is proud to officially welcome Washington DC’s GENOCIDE PACT to the label. This crushing three-piece (featuring members of D.O.C. and Red Death) have been honing their craft since 2013 with two EP releases that drew comparisons to the early Earache Records era sounds of Bolt Thrower, Napalm Death, and Entombed.


Their new album ‘Forged Through Domination’ offers seven tracks full of bludgeoning riffs, barbaric drumming and guttural vocals captured to tape by Kevin Bernsten/Developing Nations and mastered by Brad Boatright/ Audiosiege. Artwork was created by fellow DC local Joshy Brettell of ILSA.

GENOCIDE PACT ‘Forged Through Domination’ will see a summer release on LP and Digital formats via A389.
