New Noise Designed by a Sadist is the sixth studio album by English industrial rock band Pop Will Eat Itself, released on 3 October 2011 by Cooking Vinyl. It was the band's first original studio album in over seventeen years, after Dos Dedos Mis Amigos (1994).

Musical style[edit]

New Noise Designed by a Sadist is said to "bear all the hallmarks" of the band's heyday.[1] The best examples are said to be "Equal Zero", whose "buzzing guitar hooks, swirling techno bleeps, and clattering beats" have been said to "could have sat" alongside the band's 1994 collaboration with The Prodigy, "Their Law",[1] and "Wasted (Pt. 1)", whose "snarling vocals, industrial riffs, and scuzzy guitars" are reminiscent of John Lydon's electronica work.[1]
