Biography

There are several groups performing under this moniker:
1) Metal/Hardcore band from Geneva
2) Disco from 1979


1) Brutality, devastation and precision are Nostromo’s 3 leitmotivs. Born from pain in 1996 within the prolific Genevan scene, Nostromo quickly found their own identity with a clever mix of metal/ hardcore sprinkled with thrash and grindcore influences. From demotapes to 7 inches, the band created their own style. Everybody was blasted by Nostromo’s maturity when they released their first album Argue in Autumn 1998 on the Genevan label Snuff Records (Knut, Brazen, Fragment…). 9 ultra-furious-as regular-as-clockwork songs, killer double-drum kick and pure brutality riffs led by a strong hardcore ‘on-the-verge-of-rupture’ singing.

The band would keep growing in the following years. After playing shows with bands like Napalm Death and Turmoil, Nostromo released their sophomore effort in July 2000 on Mosh Bart Industries (now Bisect Bleep Industries). Eyesore proved their ability to self-revive their own style by putting more and more ferocity, precision, and emotion into it.

In october of 2002, Eyesore’s successor was released on Overcome Records. Recorded by Miesko (singer/ guitarist in Nasum), the album even more technical and provided a few musical openings demonstrating the evergrowing maturity of our four metal-heads’ universe. An extreme music album, finely built and thought, where grind-madness and relaxing accoustic parts are combined, where shouts become silence and let dancing breaks stun the listener’s brain.
