Ich Bin N!ntendo plays improvised noise punk. Their influences are a mixture of american hard-core, japanese noise and european improvised music. The result is often intense and no compromises are made. External tools and preparations on their instruments, such as bows and solid metal, expands their opportunities and color the soundscape. Ordinary distortion-pedals, a minimum of reverb, and maybe a noise-oscilliator is used, but they never use electronics that make the instruments sound like something they're not. The band rather want to extend the current limits of their instruments, in addition to play cruel and punk sounds.
Young Norwegian power trio Ich bin N!ntendo is a sonic heir to European power outfits such as the Swedish-Norwegian trio The Thing, Italian punk-jazz trio Zu, and Dutch quartet The Ex.
