Aufgehoben are from England and certainly fit in with the rock / harsh  noise tradition of bands like  God or Ramleh and more recently, Shit And Shine, with whom they share the multiple drummers thing, though Aufgehoben manage to make do with just two of the species freaking out on their drum kits. They also utilize "bricks and metal" as well as the usual guitars and electronics. But if you had to guess, from just listening to 'em, you'd probably pick Japan as their country of origin. Again, 'cause of the sheer noisiness of this, but also 'cause of how the album's last, longest track "Jederfursich..." (26:57) is an epic, repetitively pounding psych guitar blow out (blow up?) that would have the combined forces of both Boris and Merzbow running for cover... whereas the tracks that precede it aren't quite as "rock", though no less noisy, maybe more so, in the vein of Wolf Eyes, who too might reach for the earplugs when confronted with this. To finish, to mention the label which edited this album in 2008 in LP and CD formats until availble here for an economical price. Holy Mountain Records is a label founded in 1990 and is specialized in to edite Experimental Noise Rock in all sizes of Vinyls (lp´s, ep´s, single´s, etc.) and also cd´s, of course.
