Nova= new star, Sonic= sound… It means "The sound of new star."

Its members are SeHwang Kim on guitars and vocals, SuYong Lee on drums, YeongSeok Kim on bass and vocals, HyunSup Lee singing vocals for their fourth album, and JinPyo Kim providing rap and vocals for their first three albums.

They provided the song "For Adun (Protoss' Theme)" on the Starcraft game soundtrack, Starcraft Game Music Vol.1, in 2000. Their song "Another Truth" from Novasonic 1 and "SLAM" from Novasonic 2 were popular in the game Pump It Up. In 2002 they released a two-disc set called "1999-2002 Novasonic Remastering" which included many tracks from their first three CDs as well as two live songs, a remix of their song "Empire of the Sun Last Vatalian," and a version of "For Adun (Protoss' Theme)" that did not include sounds from the Starcraft game. They also released a live CD/DVD.
They have been described as a "Korean Rage Against the Machine."
Their three instrumentalists are also part of the music group N.EX.T (New EXperiment Team).
"Along with his musical prowess, Kim himself is considered a diplomat in the Korean rock world. Because of his exceptional English and Korean, he often acts as an interpreter for Western musicians performing in Korea, such as friends Steve Vai and Joe Satriani." -http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kim_Se_Hwang
