Melt Downer, consisting of Wolfgang Möstl, Mario Zangl (Mile Me Deaf, Killed by 9V Batteries) and Florian Giessauf (Torso, Red Red Red, Das kleine deutsche Eck) play heavy psychedelic rock with dub influences, far away from any macho rock clichés. Founded in 2014, they spent two years perfecting their partially improvised and free sound structures on stages in and around Austria before recording an album. It is definitely not any overly intellectualised tedium - structured fun has as much justification as banging on drums back in the Stone Age. They’ve already shared the stage with idols such as METZ and Destruction Unit, and their shows left even these heavyweights of this genre with gaping mouths. Through the transcription of the raw and nevertheless complex dynamics on the long-awaited debut album, they’ve succeeded in creating a true work of art that hasn’t lost any of the energy of their live shows. This can be attributed to the lavish production that the band themselves are responsible for. In proper DIY manner, everything from setting up the first microphone to mastering the album and creating the artwork was under full control of the band. The results are more than just music to listen to. It’s dangerous, brutal, dreamy and trippy. It will melt your brain cells. It’s Melt Downer, yo.
