If Metal Blade defined the cutting edge of American Metal in the 80's, Noise can surely be considered their European counterpart. Just a quick glance at their early discography and you'll have the very definition of 80's "Euro-Metal" right there. With the succes of Helloween's "Keeper.."-albums their focus shifted slightly towards more melodic Speed/Power Metal and I guess it's this genre that most people associate them with today. Ironic, considering how they once were the only label that dared to take on the Mighty HELLHAMMER! For the ultimate account of the rise and fall of the label, The Corroseum recommends David E. Gehlke's book "Damn The Machine - The Story Of Noise Records", released in 2017.

This updated list now includes the first 200 releases by the label, after which very little should be of interest to the average Corroseum reader. Also added are the additonal 8 releases on the short-lived EMI Noise insignia, a not too fortunate co-operation with EMI between the years 1989-1991.

N 0015 Crown Red Zone LP 1984  
N 0016 Grave Digger Shoot Her Down! 12" EP 1984 A pretty blunt, fast & straight-forward NWOBHM-style piece that's rather unassuming and not the kind of "hit" you'd expect would warrant an exclusive EP release (i.e. not at all like the catchy "We Wanna Rock You", but we've already heard that one on HM Breakdown). "Storming The Brain" closes, and justifies the whole release with some great Accept-goes-proto-thrash ruckus.
N 0017 Celtic Frost Morbid Tales MLP/
Pic-MLP
1984 Ok, describing music by way of geometrical forms might come off a bit pretentious, but if there ever was an album sounding like its cover it's this one. "Morbid Tales" IS the heptagram - the heptagram is "Morbid Tales".
N 0018 Ballantinez Charged MLP 1985  
N 0019 Warrant First Strike MLP 1985
N 0020 Grave Digger Witch Hunter LP 1985 It's easy to see this album in a rosey hue after all those years... Wasn't it just as good as the debut? Maybe even better?? No, it wasn't.
NCD 002 Grave Digger Witch Hunter CD 1985 ...Well, the debut was at least a much better kind of bad than this one. Which is not to say this is a bad album ...or maybe it is? Not a bad album I mean, but a way of saying it is. Which it definitely isn't.

Grave Digger, Running Wild, Helloween, Warrant, Sinner and Celtic Frost.
N 0023 Warrant The Enforcer LP 1985  
N 0024 Celtic Frost Emperor's Return MLP 1985 It's not a "death grunt", it's the sound of the Snake Demon Emperor fucking his trio of voluptuous witches!

N 0111 Scanner Hyper Trace LP/CD 1988 I think it was during the great What's-Cool-And-What's-Not-In-Metal convention of 2007 that it was decided the line between Trüe Kult Epic Metal and Fuk'n Ghay German Power Metal is drawn exactly right between abouts ATTACK and SCANNER. Carrying the shortest straw, I must confess I still enjoy Scanner quite a lot an consider them one of the few Great Exceptions in the genre, together w/ early BG.
