The experimental caterwauls of Gnaw are as unsettling as their name. Containing key members metal groups with various extreme proclivities—Khanate (very slow), O.L.D. (very fast). and Burning Witch (very stoner-y)—this New York-based underground supergroup takes its time in doling out flagellant exercises in noise for noise’s sake and ear-piercing screams. The band has even rigged its own “noise trigger,” MacGyver-style, out of a contact mike and a cymbal, for extra unpleasantness. With Earthen Grave and a band with enough gall to call themselves Iron Man.
