((Black Dice)) Band Profile and Upcoming New York City Concerts - Oh My Rockness

BLACK DICE PHOTOGRAPHED BY EMILY WILSON
Brooklyn's electronic hardcore noisemakers, Black Dice, provoke strong gut reactions. Either you love them or you really, really hate them. They're either the groundbreakers of a new sonic revolution or they make completely pretentious noise that takes a long time to go absolutely nowhere. However you feel about them, at least they get people talking.

Following the lead of such noise-rock luminaries as Melt Banana and Merzbow, Black Dice explore new ways of producing distortion, repetition and chaos within the song structure. Granted, this structure is very loose, but if you squint hard enough you can see a method to their madness.

This band isn't for everyone. If you don't get off on scraping and grating noise, headache-inducing feedback, and other unexplored sounds in mostly uncharted territory, then Black Dice probably isn't for you. And I'm sure that's cool with them. But if you are into them, just remember to bring your earplugs.
