Hypochristmutreefuzz’s ‘Hypnos’: Old fashioned schizophrenic nightmare

Belgian noiserockers Hypochristmutreefuzz (try saying that three times in a row) rock the boat with their second full length album, called Hypnos. The tracks are nightmarish, the influence of American experimental hip hop band Death Grips is everywhere.

‘Hypnos’ is a concept album. All of the tracks are an attack on the senses, all of them short and concise. A couple of scary interludes knit the whole thing together. The mood is nightmarish and chaotic, like an old school horror movie. The influence of Death Grips is everywhere, but ‘Hypnos’ also has a definite nineties noiserock and industrial feel – to the point of being a bit nostalgic.

After an old fashioned intro, the first track is Hypochristmutreefuzz more or less like we know it: ‘Ding Dong’ sports an irregular riff with out-of-control screams and yells on top. Next up is the album’s single, ‘Ode to the night’. It’s a great track, but it could’ve been Death Grips just as well.

The rest of the album goes along similar lines. Interludes and audio fragments that feel somewhat dated, but set the mood, and tracks that yo-yo between nineties industrial and an ode to Death Grips. ‘Ghostess’ somewhat stands out, with a clear hook and melody.

‘Hypnos’ is at its best when you can yell along (terrified! terrified!) and when the typical Hypochristmutreefuzz-riffs join in. The songs with a Death Grips-feel are great and expertly executed, but the original is hard to beat.

Music for the endtimes: Willy Organ

It is day 3 of the quarantine I am starting to cave in, I am starting to give up. Kid number 1 is asking the same question over and over and over and Kid number 2 can’t talk yet but makes a lot of gurgly noises nonetheless. I am eating 5 hot meals a day and chocolate is my new type of fruit. Stinking in my pyamas is my new style and I can fart like Donky Kong on speed. I have been listening to Chat Pile the last couple of days because the gloom of the band perfectly fits these times.

Now suddenly, without warning, snot starts running out of my nose, my throat hurts and I think this may be the end. The stress and tiredness is taken over after 3 days of pure terror and suddenly I paused Chat Pile and remembered the New Synth Wizard, The Master of the Life Song, the new Ghentian artist Willy Organ! Willy Organ does not fit on this website at all, not even a little bit, yet he has given one of the best live shows I have ever seen, his lyrics are beyond beautiful (it is in Dutch so I suggest you learn Dutch as fast as possible so you can truly enjoy this music) and he deserves to be on every site. Willy Organ’s music oozes existential dread, it asks questions that make you look deep into yourself at these bleak times. Willy Organ’s music is what I need and I don’t know if you will need it too but I wanted to post it mostly because I can and fuck you and because I just sit here in quarantine and I wanted to post something else for a change.

This new Belgian word wizard wil release a new album that will be called “Jonge Plant” that you can pre-order on bandcamp. And you should buy it because he may be a wizard, he needs money for food and drinks. If you can’t get enough of Willy you can just look him up on youtube and you will find a lot more. His new album will be released June 5.

I also embedded Willy doing a cover of Type O Negative’s “My Girfriends Girlfriend” called “Mijn Vriendins Vriendin”.

Skiska Skooper release “Surreality Check”

When you press play on the very first track from the new album “Surreality Check” by the Belgian trio Skiska Skooper you immediatly get a gorgeous riff with some distorted underwater like vocals, this is no bullshit heaviness to begin a really good album with. Melodic guitar riffs switch with noiserock brutality and here and there some psychedelic vibes. Most tracks on this album are catchy, heavy and get stuck in your head really fast.

Skiska Skooper took their game a step further and created with “Surreality Check” their best work so far. Heavy tracks like “Cocktail” ,psych/sludge tracks like “Northern Escort’, acoustic stuff like “Heroin Shifter” and grunge in “Silver Linings” create a album that is versatile and fun to listen to.

Favourite track: Clusterfuck

Hypochristmutreefuzz returns with new track “Ode to Night”

It seems we have ourselfs the best Belgian week ever. With new music from The K., Skiska Skooper and Crowd of Chairs and now new music by Ghentian weirdos Hypochristmutreefuzz. Their previous album (wich is pretty awesome) was called “Hypopotomonstrosesquipedaliophobia” and dates back from January 2017.

Hypochristmutreefuzz is a band that is full of originality, weirdness and heaviness and they show that strenght again on their new track “Ode To Night”. The track is a bit of a mashup of genres (like with most of their music) and gives you an unique listening experience. This track feel dominantly experimental and industrial but with a catchy side to it. “Ode To Night” is taken from their upcoming album “Hypnos”.

This band always delivers something special, something unique and with their new music they do it again. Impossible to categorize them wich makes them so much better.

Listen for yourself, here are the Ghentians Hypochristmutreefuzz.
