Sonic Violence


Everyone’s tags

More tags


Sonic Violence were formed in Southend, Essex (UK) in the late 1980’s by Andy Whiting and “Auntie”, who had previously played in punk band The Synix. The band were among the first acts to be signed to Peaceville Records, although they had moved to its subsidiary label Dreamtime by the time of their second full-length (“Transfixion”). A third album was planned for 1993 but this never materialized. At last notice the band’s line-up had expanded to accomodate two drummers, two bass guitarists, a full light-show and greater emphasis on electronic samples.


1989 Sacrifice To Strength (12”)
1990 Jagd (LP/CD, CD contains 3 extra tracks that feature on Sacrifice To Strength and Casket Case)
1990 Casket Case (12”, Re-release of Sacrifice To Strength with 2 dub mixes of tracks from Jagd)
1992 Transfixion (LP/CD)
1993 The Blastecyst Mixes (Limited edition 12”)

    отлично, пацаки валят агрессивно на JAGD. На Transfixion больше мрачных атмосферных теней.

    Jagd is my favorite but Transfixion is good too, I haven't found anything else from them though. This band is painfully underrated!

    First album is criminally underrated. I'm surprised to why Peaceville doesn't re-release their albums... took me nearly two years to finally find a working link to their first album "Jagd" and I'm really blown away at it's minimalism and brutality.
