Tarmvred has recorded primarily on the German Ad Noiseam label, although its latest release, the vinyl-only e.p. Tintorama, is on Low Res Records, based in Detroit, Michigan. A new full-length album is expected soon; Ad Noiseam said in January 2006 that "the waiting for a second full length album [from Tarmvred] is slowly coming to an end..." Style of music Tarmvred's music has an experimental, electronic style, with heavy beats, a barrage of irregular percussion, distortion, and sparse use of melody. Only one brief stanza of clearly sung lyrics appear in all of their work, by guest vocalist Gertrud Polonyi; it appears on track 5 of Subfusc, as well as on the track "Mourning" on Onomatopoeic (apparently the same recording of the lyrics).
Heavily distorted lyrics appear on a few other tracks, never more than briefly. Their tracks sometimes wander between rhythmic and chaotic, and have a wide variety of motivs that continue falling away or appearing throughout the track. Tarmvred recorded much of Viva 6581 using a MOS 6581 sound chip, featured in early-80's computers such as the Commodore 64. Read more on Last.fm.
