Now available! Damn the Machine – The Story of Noise Records
The first (and only) Noise Records Book, “Damn the Machine – The Story of Noise Records” is an unflinching, no-holds-barred look at one of European metal’s most influential record companies. The book is stocked with over 500 pages of in-depth, exclusive interviews and never-before-seen photographs.
Featuring commentary from Noise’s controversial owner Karl-Ulrich Walterbach and his bands – Celtic Frost, Coroner, Gamma Ray, Helloween, Kreator, Running Wild, Tankard, Voivod, and many more – Damn the Machine – The Story of Noise Records takes a long, hard look at the inner-workings of an independent record company trying to make its way through the ultra-competitive metal underground of the 1980s and ‘90s.
With cover art from Michel “Away” Langevin of Voivod, and a foreword provided Blind Guardian’s Hansi Kürsch, Damn the Machine – The Story of Noise Records is the definitive work on a label that helped lay the foundation for the unstoppable force that is the European heavy metal underground.
