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.

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.
