Sometimes I hear these bands that have only two humans in it and they make more noise then half an orchestra and I am always amazed how much energy and noise they produce with only two. And since I love lists (i know i know) I made a list! Mostly noiserock duos and I am sure I forgot about an awful lot so help out a bit and let me know who I forgot. Tune in for a list of loud duos (maybe next time I will do a list with one man bands)
Who better to start with then the Belgian duo Vandal X, godfathers of Belgian Noiserock. Check them out and if you need more Belgian noiserock, tune in for The Big Belgian Noiserocklist.
The duo from Boston has recently made a split with the duo Greylocks that is really awesome.
Ah Yes ofcourse Lightning Bolt! Probaly the best known noiserock duo making extremely awesome noise with only two dudes since the beginning of sound.
This one is so awesome. Relentless fast paced Japanese noiserock! Melt-Banana is also on my ridiculously long list called ‘The Cosmic side of Japan’.
From Leeds, These ones make absolutely brutal riff fueled heaviness.
From The Netherlands, not really noiserock but I really love their experimental noise/doom/whatever. Really good band.
Dutch Duo wich has a member from Dead Neandertals, very evil music, watch yourselves.

Aha! my favourite duo! Ended on my end of the year list of 2020 too, extremely heavy, extremely loud.
