BiographyNoia is a black/thrash metal band from Florence, Italy, formed in 2001. Two early demos with a chaotic mix (or "chaotic mess") of all kinds of stuff remained untitled and unreleased. In 2005, the band was ready for the first album "Mind oppression", the only one with a four-piece line-up. The musical direction began to be clear and that record contained all the elements that would define the typical Noia sound: a mix of all sorts of metal styles with heavy d-beat/hardcore punk influences.
From that point onwards, they continued as a trio, and the second album "Pure Scorn" followed just one year later, with a mix of black/thrash/death metal and d-beat with detuned guitars. Between 2008 and 2009, the third album "Necessary Extinction" was recorded, basically a black thrash/speed album with the usual d-beat backbone. After a break, it took until 2013 to release the fourth album. The material for "Obstinate Sacrifice" was composed over the course of three years. making it their most heterogenous-sounding record. Three more chaotic years passed until the album "Iron death" was recorded in winter 2016, easily the fastest and rawest album since the debut, with pure black thrash/speed metal tunes from start to finish.
