LÄRM (German for noise) were a Dutch straight edge thrashcore band formed in 1981, first playing under the name of Total Chaoz. Lärm pioneered what would later be called Power Violence, along with bands Heresy and Siege. However, they referred to their music as "extreme noise", though having nothing to do with noise rock or noise music. Due to members being straight edge, which was something uncommon in the Crust Punk scene, Lärm were different from many bands at the time. The group also turned down contracts from record labels like Nuclear Blast, eventually resulting in their break up. Members went on to form Seein Red and the more conventionally straight edge Manliftingbanner. This is their new album that they were pleasantly surprised all of us who love them. The CD contains a lot of old songs, but this is LÄRM! :) Fuck yeah!
