Noxagt play a walloping fusion of sound akin to the early notes of Melvins, late era ambience of Swans and at times the wiry tension and bombast of label mates (Load Records) Lightning Bolt. They're in the US this month and next, so get out and see this blissfull trio from Norway as they send your senses into the cosmos wrapped in a doggy bag.
