Dark and feral songs full of irony and social criticism tell of love, murder, and failed politics. The dark soul of hackmonocut's music comes along with a familiar feeling of melancholy in his voice, driven by humming, distorted rock guitars creating hackmonocut's special kind of ALTERNATIVE ROCK NOIR sound.
Started in 2012 as a single man show and a busy year of songwriting and homerecording later, hackmonocut released his debut album 'in the land of basement hobby rooms' with 11 tracks. Followed by the video to the song 'virgin suicide bomber' visualizing one of the darkest tracks of the album in November 2013.
While working on the video, hackmonocut completed the process of forming a band, which gives you the opportunity to see hackmonocut live on stage. In 2014 the band gained a lot of live-experience touring through Austria and performing an intense lineup which tempts the audience to dance with the dark soul of hackmonocut's alternative rock noir.
Meanwhile hackmonocut finished recording his 2nd solo album 'the sum of my parts' which will be on the market by summer 2015. The new tracks focus more on love and murder than on politics, which makes the new album sound a little less raging but overall darker than 'in the land of basement hobby rooms'. Sometimes you can even hear a little waltz noir in 3-quarter-time among uncompromising dark alternative rock noir songs. Watch the video album teaser to 'used love' to get a preview of what is to come.
