History

This band was founded in Kiel in northern Germany in 1992 and mixed metalcore with deathly elements. The group disbanded in 2009, but came back two years later. Early demos were a self-titled one in 1992, Slow Motion Nightmare in 1994, Slow Virus Disease in 1995 and 1997’s Bring Them To Heel. Then came the 1998 demo A Sequence Of Reality and Mortal Machines. The 2002 demo of the same name lead to a deal with Twilight, which was essentially a mail order company as opposed to a record company, which was followed by Rain Or Shine Wacken Live 2005. Armageddon saw the band at Wacken and signed the band. The latest sign of life was a 2017 demo called Boiling Blood. Boris and Dennis were still in the line-up. Guitarist Dennis Wolter joined the duo in 2017.

The band has had a number of comings and goings throughout the years.

Reviews

NOISE FOREST - MORBID INSTINCTS - ARMAGEDDON  
Could it be that this German band has failed to obtain a recording contract for the last 14 years because of the group’s name? Noise Forest is not the type of a name a label would want to attract, although with Armageddon Music the quartet has managed to put together and release a good album. At first listen, Noise Forest seems like an iffy proposition with hints of hardcore and Sepultura throughout side one on the songs Cramp, Be At Peace and Flag. However, by the time the vintage Bolt Thrower riff hits on Past Redemption one knows there is something good happening here. The songs improve as the album progresses. The album’s second half makes a definitive statement with gargantuan riffs and massive chords. In fact, aside from the aforementioned influence Noise Forest also draws from Crowbar, Asphyx and the old Roadrunner band Sorrow. Add ultra-guttural fronts and growls to the violence and the album is easily recommendable. - Anna Tergel
