Biography

Bristol, United Kingdom (2006 – 2013)

Returning We Hear the Larks was the Progressive Metal solo project of Jak Noble, a student from Bristol, UK from 2006 to 2013. The name is taken from the poem by Isaac Rosenberg.

Noble began writing and recording music in 2005 with his younger brother George. He soon began experimenting with his own music and releasing it online under his own name. He released a short debut album in the spring of 2006 entitled Asphyxiation, which is still available online in a few locations. In October 2006, he took up rhythm guitar for the local band Anathematize, consisting of close friends of his. After the band lost various singers, Noble assumed the position of front man as well as second guitarist.

After going through personal troubles in early 2007, Noble relaunched his solo project anonymously under the name MurderOnTheDancefloor (initially written with spaces, until it was changed due to a dispute with the US band of the same name). Influenced heavily by the music of his teenage years, Noble performed a fusion of and under this name. His music typically consisted of fast-paced riffage, combined with breakdowns and Trance synth melody lines, and often featuring violent and angst-ridden screamed lyrics. Noble labelled this style as ‘Death Disco’. An eponymously-titled EP was released under this name, as well as a compilation of demo tracks entitled Before Copyright Became an Issue (in reference to his dispute with the US band of the same name, as well as regular use of unauthorised samples in his music). Both of these releases are available for free download on Noble’s current BandCamp.

    Every fucking track you've put out is so dank-o-licious man! Far-Stepper is a gdamn masterpiece of work Ja'k. Mother fucking epic album. The content of album is unique, deep, sad. Poor Medusa. Spite and revenge are so tragic. Keep writing sir Ja'k, you're a musical genius. The Morgan Family loves you bro.

    @JakIsDead, Yes, I am aware, but I didn't like it either. I expected songs like Callisto, Io, Remus Lupin. Bathilda Bagshot etc. I find them refined and captivating, especially comparing to songs of those prog met/djent bands and one-man projects who are in abundance for the time being

    the biggest disappointment in 2013, I'd say. Don't fucking use vox, make instrumental music like u used to, oh god, now he has become another djent-wankery performer, there are too many of them nowadays.
