HANDLINGNOISE was founded in Helsinki, Finland as an ambient/noise –project in 2007. It was started for a one-off performance at a club for experimental music. Shortly after the concert they were joined by a drummer, which opened up a load of new possibilities. Due to their different musical backgrounds and influences that range from minimal electronic music to metal their own style became very multifaceted.

They wanted to develop a distinctive sound also from the production point of view, so they started recording material on their own in 2008. In the beginning they did this at training spaces and summer cottages using their own and some borrowed equipment. As the project evolved and they realized that these recordings were growing into an album, they also went to record in a studio. HANDLINGNOISE finished work on their debut album in the spring of 2012 and it was mastered by Harris Newman at Greymarket Mastering, Montreal, Canada.
