Austrian Underground: Epileptic Media

Austria, home of a Milka Chocolate factory, home of more then 90 lakes, home of the sachertorte, birthplace of Arnold Schwarzenegger, designers of the most incredibel camper Marchi Mobile but also the home of Andreas, the founder of Epileptic Media, a label for all kinds of weirdo music (some reasonably normal ones too). The label was born somewhere in 2009 and I want to share some of the music that is on the label. Very important to mention is that Andreas makes most of the artwork wich is absolutely stunning and I will drop a pic of those here and there.

Andreas is also a part of Omega World Order wich has stunning merch.

I am going to start with the most recent release and work my way down. Prepare yourself for some pretty cool music.

States of Clay

Seven experimental tracks on this album that is called “Jona Dares”. From dreampop to no wave to noiserock all in one album! I have to say though that the track “Ashes to the Ground” is an absolutely amazing track and you need to hear it.

Mozo Mozo, Walser, Nadeshda, Didi Kern & Philipp Quehenberger

A 4-Way split is always awesome. Mozo Mozo gives us experimental jazznoise, Walser takes it a bit more easier with 13 minutes of ambient drone and then Nadesha unleashes 15 minutes of eerie ambient. Then 16 tracks by Didi Kern & Philipp Quehenberger of a something I have no idea how to describe.


Marloe

On “Found + Lost” Marloe delivers some really nice soundscapes and experimental techno tracks. “B02 Artificial” my favourite track of the thing.

Oort Cloud

we got an experimental one again. This time Oort Cloud gives us  soundscapes and experimental bleeps.


Puke Puddle

Intens eerie industrial sounds by Puke Puddle on the latest “Detox”

SE Mustard Terrorist

Very creepy futuristic electronic punk loop noise. This is probably already a genre but I baptize this music Floop music.

The Mild

Aha! here we have something else, something thats sounds a bit as if a posthardcore dude got kicked in the face by a death meatel drum machine that only listen to grindcore.


Tsujigiri

Still in the noiserock/grindcore/weird spectrum is Tsujigiri who released “Demoh!” in 2015.

Dirt Deflector

We have reached a very strange moment in the timeline of Epileptic Media. its seems the label released a very normal and cool sounding band wich can be described simply as stoner.


Henry Fonda

Another spastic grindcore powerviolence band. Please turn very loud to enjoy this.
