A harsh sounding and extreme form of electronic music. It's sound can be described in both an effective and comical way as sounding like "large lumps of metal smashing against each other, forming some form of techno-esque drum beat, while someone rakes their nails down a chalkboard."
I don't like happy hardcore, but I love Noize.
Hard to be taken as music genre but definately an interesting way of making sounds - with everything you can think of - from glass or rubber, to dozens of little devices and modulators.
We were at a Justice Yeldham live last night - quite a nasty noize artist!
