For decades, musicians have turned their amplifiers up to 11 into a search to make the public with their sound walls.
From heavy metalizers of the old school to avant -garde electronic artists, the bands in a variety of genres have crushed the eardrums, the damaged and even caused earthquake buildings of the sonic auges they have produced.
In this article, we describe 10 of the most noisy bands in history, we describe the impact that their audio assaults have had on their audiences and sands, and we detail how each of them won their reputation as the Sound Sound soldiers.
Lemmy Kilmister and his crew began with the aim of being the strongest, fastest and faster band in the world, and many will say that they succeeded.
His living concerts could reach a powerful 130 decibels, and places worldwide suffered the consequences.
In the Cleveland Variety Theater in 1984 they made the plaster on the roof break and fall on the audience below, while in the United Kingdom they broke the roof of the Newcastle City Council, destroyed the windows of Wolverhampton Polytechnic and set fire to the speakers Port Vale fc.
It is not surprising that they title one of their live albums
This electronic duo showed that they could match any heavy metal band for pure destructive ruin when acting at the Brixton Academy in June 1996.
His concert was measured to 137 decibels and brutally strong rhythms started the pieces of the building. After having covered his audience with flirts of plaster and dust expelled from the walls and ceilings, the group was not invited back to acting in the place for another four years, and only then with the condition that they reject the volume.
My bloody Valentin
This alternative rock band practically reinvented how the guitars could sound in their 1991 loveless album, immersing the songs in layer after feedback and distortion layer. When it was performed live, the combined force of all sound levels became terribly, notoriously noisy.
While turning to promote the album, the band set out to prove the ability of their audience to support the extreme volume for sustained periods of time, which led a journalist to describe the programs as “more as torture than entertainment.”
Fans attending concerts often received caps for the ears before entering, and despite the fact that the band spent more than 20 years in parentheses, it broke complete Chronic Tinnitus’s form.
“I consider it a friend,” said singer/guitarist Kevin Shields.
On May 31, 1976, 75,000 people packed in the Charlton Athletic football field in London to see an alignment headed by WHO. His performance that night was measured to 126 decibels … 100 feet away from the speakers.
However, being among the most noisy bands in history had a price for members, with Roger Daltrey telling journalists in 2018: ‘I advise all rock and roll fans: carry their plugs for concerts. If we had only known when we were young … we are reading lips.
The American psychedelic rockers Blue Cheer are considered a pioneer of extreme volume, being the first band that appears in the Guinness book of world records as a stronger band in the world.
At the end of the 1960s, their volume levels were far beyond what people were used to, and fans in their concerts commonly had to leave the first rows, since they could not resist noise.
Blue Cheer was so strong that they had to record outdoors, and part of their second album was recorded on a San Francisco dock.
These Power Metal rioters often write songs influenced by sword stories, witchcraft, fantasy and mythology, being known for its epic and overwhelming sound. It seems appropriate then, that Manowar has apparently been in a search to reach the volume levels with which no other band can complete.
In 1984, the group was appointed by the Guinness book of world records to offer the strongest performance in history, and since then they have broken their own record twice.
His current best personal decibels was achieved during a sound verification at the Magic Circle Fest in 2008, when 139 decibels reached the powerful.
