For the third post in our Sphere of influence series (find the first two posts here and here), we thought we'd try something different. Rather than grouping together musicians with a common source of inspiration, we've created a list of artists whose music shares a common stylistic device: dissonance.
Of course it is hard to separate influence, inspiration and stylistic similarity. The fact is, it's harder to find a single artist that is representative of this list as a whole, so we prefer to present all of them to you on equal footing. Without further ado, here are 14 noisy, violent, atonal, or just plain dissonant tracks for you to discover. Enjoy!
