Evan Mugford on Metal Noam

“Bonus points for the individuality felt and found within Avram, the debut EP from a trio of Noam Chomsky enthusiasts who warmly call themselves Metal Noam. Spliced with audio bites from the world-renowned linguist and philosopher, this three-track recording is an intriguing spread of various metal influences, ranging from blackened thrash to an opaque doom metal crawl.

Chomsky’s assured timbre serves as the vocal bedrock of Avram, while a litany of effects and often dramatic riffing counterbalances the humorously affectionate tone of the band’s name. The music and the messages it ramparts have been exceptionally well-mortared, and for such a brief record, it works as an able, emotional extension of Chomsky’s ideas.”
