The Rhode Island-based noise rock duo Lightning Bolt creates extremely heavy noise music by combining antagonized drum beats with writhing bass crunches. Though it may be hard to discern any sort of melody or tempo from the band's wall of sound, Lightning Bolt's music is actually a very calculated combination of unrelenting distorted screaming, harrowing bass shredding and crackling snare hits. Since 1994 and throughout six studio albums including its eponymous 1999 effort and 2012's Oblivion Hunter, Lightning Bolt has built a reputation based on its aggressive guerrilla-styled shows, often opting to play on the ground among its crowd instead of on a stage.
