I'm getting behind in my DLC, but will definitely be considering both the (Damn) This Desert Air and Cephalic Carnage songs when I buy some points and start catching up.
ASP is Proud to announce Indestructible Noise Command heading to the Rockband Network!
Connecticut needed a Thrash Metal band like Tammy Fay Baker needed a trip through the car wash to scrub all that gloppy goo off her face. If you were there, you know what we’re talkin’ about. Why no one else had thought of it sooner was beyond them. As soon as Guitarist Anthony Fabrizi and then Drummer Gary Duguay got on board, I.N.C. starting booking local gigs – playing out anywhere they could be heard.
The still relatively new Indestructible Noise Command crew recorded a demo tape that very next year (1986) and immediately started booking bigger shows. They played with the likes of Exodus, Megadeth and King Diamond. Less than a year after that (an astonishing six months out of high school) they were signed to Giant Records to start work on their 1st full length album, Razorback (1987).
Critics and fans throughout the tri-state area (New York, New Jersey and Connecticut) were hammered over the head by what they heard. But, that was just the tip of the Thrash Metal iceberg. The band’s heavy, aggressive style translated well to stage AND vinyl. Why stop at one album when you can turn around and crank out another that’s even wilder, weirder and more friggin’ wily than the first one?
Those rascally Indestructible Noise Command boys used their 2nd album, The Visitor, as a showcase for what made them stand out in the first place. A Thrash-laden, compilation cover of The Cars’ tunes “Just What I Needed” and “Candy-O” found the originals ripe for the picking. It won I.N.C. a place in Thrash Metal history as probably the only band bold enough to blend razor-blade-edged, raging guitar riffs (courtesy of Barath and Fabrizi) with the kind of vocal peculiarity only Dennis Gergely could provide.
Lest he be forgotten, it should be duly noted that Gary Duguay got his own good licks in playing skins. Back on the road, bands like Pantera started opening at I.N.C. gigs. People were lining up in droves to take in the spectacle and be bathed in the incandescent, irresistible light that was – and still is – Indestructible Noise Command. I.N.C. hit #1 on the U.S. college Metal charts and stole the U.K. #2 Import slot out from underneath Aerosmith. The Metal life, for I.N.C., was lookin’ good!
Now there back 26 years later !! and heading to the RBN!
And, yeah, you’re right…it’s time! As one savvy Carlos Ramirez pointed out this April (2010): “In the years since their initial (1990s) breakup, (I.N.C.’s) eccentric brand of metal has been embraced by a new breed of record collectors, proving that their style was definitely ahead of its time.” It was. And, here they are: Ready, willing and goddamn able to Thrash their way back onto the scene with Metal vengeance. A new line up, a new website (www.INCBand.com), a new video (“God Loves Violence”) and entire album written and ready for release are just a few of the lusty perks. They’ve taken their old-school I.N.C. flavor and laid down a bevy of heavy, hard-hitting changes that’ll have fans old and new ready to Bleed the Line in time with their every move!
