SONS OF NOAM were born in June 2012 when three musicians from Mallorca decided to join forces to form this power-rock trio based in the city of Berlin.
We are EUGENIO BLANCO on guitar and vocals (EuGeeN WhiTe, ZaPaTaZz, Marlovers), KIKO MEDINA on bass (Platypus Fickfest, CircoEs3Urbano, Goblins Chichos Masters) and BENJAMIN AMOROS on drums (One Foot, Mickjägermeisters, Kaoslab).

Our band name pays tribute to the great linguistic and philosopher NOAM CHOMSKY. He is one of the most prominent influences in our ideology, not only politically but also anthropologically. Because we strongly believe that we are all Sons of Noam and he represents accurately this mentality change, to make us all aware of the transition from the old decadent world to the new world order: don’t mistake alienation with progress.
So… “Beware, and beware, and beware” (Waking Life, 2001). At the end all is about being aware everytime and everywhere. Hard job…
We have been strongly influenced by many different bands, specially from the 90s: Nirvana, Deftones, Weezer, Smashing Pumpkins, Green Day, Pennywise, Foo Fighters, Helmet, Bad Religion, Radiohead, Kyuss, Prodigy, … but also by Fugazi, Pixies, Refused, At the Drive-In, Mars Volta, Sonic Youth, Queens of the Stone Age, Nine Inch Nails, Ramones, Tool, Faith No More and so many more.
How we define our music? Although we come from different musical backgrounds, SONS OF NOAM is just simplistic and catchy ROCK-PUNK.
More than once we have been told that we “are not fast enough to be considered punk but yet quite hard and noisy to be considered pop”. THAT IS JUST THE WAY WE WANT IT, BABY!
Plain, direct and with simple arrangements. Our motto is “Less is more”.
