This is the perfect time to tell you yet again how amazing the new album by Reptoid is, I gave it a 10/10 score and now the man himself released a new video for the track ‘You Have Already been Compromised’. And it is excellent too so how he does make all this racket on his own and with such explosive energy. read my review here. And check out the new animated vieo by Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs Pigs, and the video from The Well and Mozo Mozo.
I did a post on the underground Austria music label Epileptic Media a while back. The bands on that label range from cosmic experimentalism to Brutal Harsh Noise. Now there is a new album out and ofcourse, what would you expect, it is again something very experimental. Mozo Mozo are some sort of cosmic jazznoise ensemble. Their self-titled is 5 songs long but each track almost 15 minutes in length. Again gorgeous artwork too! I can only say: brace yourself and listen to Mozo Mozo.
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.

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.
On “Found + Lost” Marloe delivers some really nice soundscapes and experimental techno tracks. “B02 Artificial” my favourite track of the thing.
we got an experimental one again. This time Oort Cloud gives us soundscapes and experimental bleeps.
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.
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.
Still in the noiserock/grindcore/weird spectrum is Tsujigiri who released “Demoh!” in 2015.
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.
Another spastic grindcore powerviolence band. Please turn very loud to enjoy this.
