NOCICEPTOR Discusses Themselves & New Album “Among Insects”
I’ll just keep things short, simple and straight to the point. Check out what Nocicepter had to say about who they are and what their music is about. I’ve thrown in a audio music sampler from their album “Among Insects”. You’re going to want to go buy this album!
no·ci·cep·tor: Pronunciation: \-ˈsep-tər\ Function: noun :a receptor for injurious or painful stimuli : a pain sense organ. The rather dark expression of pain through music is not an uncommon thing. Nor is it an expression limited only to darker, heavier, or more “metal” bands. What makes Nociceptor a unique outlet for this is the potent combination of intelligence and artistic expression. Knowledge is power….and knowledge, focus, and concentration of energy is what makes Nociceptor powerful. To simply fill you in on our history over the six years we’ve been in existence, such as bands we have shared the stage with, and bands we are influenced by, would be the contrived run-of-the-mill approach to describe it all. 2008’s “The Sum of all Scars” LP, and a new EP, titled “Among Insects”, needs neither complex definition through written description, nor do they need to be fully completed pieces in order to demonstrate their potency. They need only to fall on open ears to become a menacing outlet for the dark, painful expression of their very precise and surgical approach to music. Nociceptor EP sampler The music of this band has been toiled over…through many long hours…not necessarily with the wild, blunt abandon of a bull in a china shop…but with planning and premeditation, which isn’t always associated with metal bands. Wild abandon is far from a dismissed subject within the realms of Nociceptor, but rather than let loose with no real sense of control, its brutality is channeled. It is concentrated. It is precise, and therefore given the very sharpest point it can obtain. Nociceptor is grace through the absurd conglomeration of ferocity and delicate patience. It is the polarized contrast between chaotic brutality and beautiful order, and the violating, disturbing rupture of pulsing groove and force. Ultimately, how Nociceptor’s music is defined is up to you. We simply praise you on your own taste, and patience, to let it infest, and grow as it will within your own dark confines, and therefore become something unique inside each host that takes it in. We hope you get as much out of it as we did. Either way, it was cool of you to open your door and face it.
