QUOTES:
“In 1913, Luigi Russolo wrote The Art of Noises, describing how the human ear has become accustomed to the speed, energy, and noise of the urban industrial soundscape. What could better describe a band that has been charging the hardcore scene in Canada’s steel capital headfirst into an abysmal whirlpool of noisecore fuckification and tinnitus? This isn’t about steel though, this is about hardcore, and there is no existing vocabulary to describe cores harder than this one. Remember around 2009-2010 when “not-powerviolence” was almost sort of a loose genre referring to bands that were too “hard” for “hardcore”? On Drugs and the State, SNAKE CHARMER has almost taken that level of extremity to the borders of “not-death metal”. Have you ever listened to The Gerogerigegege? Have you ever wanted to watch a condo get demolished with a wrecking ball? Stop reading this. Turn the noise back on.” – Alican Koc
“Is that actually music!?” – My Mom hearing this EP via phone speakers
“Thanks guys this autoplayed and blew out the speakers on my phone.” – Random internet comment on an early SNAKE CHARMER YouTube video from a fan
