AGORAPHOBIC NOSEBLEED Streaming New EP ‘Arc’ in Full via Noisey
Infamous extreme metal instigators AGORAPHOBIC NOSEBLEED have shared a full stream of band’s forthcoming new EP Arc ahead of its release date this Friday via Noisey! The EP, along with an in-depth interview with Kat Katz, is available for streaming AT THIS LOCATION.
Led by the distinctive howl of vocalist Kat Katz, Arc is a crushing, three-song onslaught of misanthropic, musical violence and the first in a series of four ANb EPs designed to decimate your total being. The twenty-five+ minute sludge-fueled feast is ANB sounding heavier, doomier and more destructive than ever before.
In related news and in conjunction with the release of Arc, both AGORAPHOBIC NOSEBLEED’s Frozen Corpse Stuffed With Dope and Altered States Of America full-lengths will be available on vinyl for the first time in over a decade.
Arc will be officially unveiled on January 22nd, 2016. Arc, along with the vinyl editions of Frozen Corpse Stuffed With Dope and Altered States Of America will be available on January 22nd, 2016. Physical preorders are available now RIGHT HERE, and digital preorders are available at THIS LOCATION.

An overwhelming, concentrated outpouring of perceptual stimuli, the band’s second full-length, the 2002-issued Frozen Corpse Stuffed With Dope, referenced the glory days of early ‘00s grindcore while disregarding the genre’s then-current ideals, becoming one of the most talked-about grindcore records in recent history. The album and band were featured in numerous high-profile media outlets such as Alternative Press, Kerrang!, CMJ and dozens more. Perhaps Frozen Corpse’s best description came from then-vocalist J. Randall who surmised, “Frozen Corpse Stuffed With Dope is like ripping through back catalog Earache blastbeat shit armed with a submachine gun at 400 rounds per minute.”
While the fires left burning in Frozen Corpse‘s wake were still smoldering, AGORAPHOBIC set to work on a concept so bizarre, no one would believe it. With a focused mindset, and a plethora of mind-confounding ideas, the band wrote and recorded Altered States Of America, a 100-track three-CD set. Initially released on April Fools Day, 2003, Altered States Of America delivered the most ambitious ANb yet: completely inhuman music with a consummate disregard for its listener. Round after round, clip after clip, ANb unloaded an arsenal of stupefying guitar work, experimental noise and drum machine-gun blast beats while swarming vocalists hatefully taunted the listener into the crossfire. Kerrang! called the mini-CD, “disorientating, hallucinatory, utterly deranged and a truly fantastic work of musical extremity.”
