Montyill is a hardcore artist and 2-time felon from the hills of Northern Missouri. His work is like Frazetta and John Waters had a baby and it was raised by a Catholic priest (wink wink).
He has done shows across the US and has been invited to shows in Europe and Asia but never does them because they are, "...really far away."
His turn-ons include, drugs, music, drugs, sex, drugs, dogs, art, hardcore, bloody revolts, and drugs.
Turn offs are jail, the government, anything with the word "occupy" in it, religious bullshit and passed out fat people who fart on his couch while he's trying to write his bio.
"...really interesting, reminds me a bit of the etchings of Gustave Doré, the 19th century artist who illustrated the Divine Comedy, The Bible, Pilgrim's Progress, and other light reading." Over & Out." - Winston Smith

Ilaria “ Ila Pop” Novelli is an Italian multi-disciplinary artist, she uses different media from oil painting to digital techniques to recreate her dollesque and disturbing personal universe. A cruel world inhabited by willowy and doe-eyed figures who exchange roles from victim to perpetrator in a constant play that depicts classical and modern art compositions, songs lyrics and characters from underground literature and cinema. A private mythology and language that becomes universal and forces the viewers to a critical analysis of the cultural and social values that the modern human condition is offering to the new and old generations.

SCREAMERCLAUZ (music AND art)
On a rainy fateful night in 1987, international hip-hop star Kurt Cobain killed shot himself in the face. Before anyone discovered the body, a young hooker broke into his house and extracted a syringe full of his semen like she was the Re-animator. She quickly ran back to her sorority house and, in an erotic voodoo drug ritual, co-eds took turns shooting it into their testicles while listening to anti-social rock music (it was pretty hot, their boobs were out and stuff).
The next day, they woke up with a newborn baby. Maybe they birthed it, maybe they stole it. Hell, maybe there wasn't even a baby at all, WHO GIVES A SHIT! They named that baby SCREAMERCLAUZ and taught him how to make electronic music with a fork and an AC socket.
Now, six years later our hero is 14 1/2 years old and has honed his electrical socket art into drilling speedcore industrial beats and colorful cartoons that resemble what Gumby thinks about while he's jerking off with a belt around his neck. He's ready to get his rock star revenge on Seattle to honor his dead dad Dave Grohl, but Brooklyn is closer so he's going there instead so stop being a dick and just go already! For fuck's sake!
DOOM MEKANIK (music)
Doom Mekanik is a concept project from veteran producers Satronica & Narc inspired by the darkest techno sounds from bygone eras.
The darkness marches forth from the depths of the New York City underground. Their sound summons the empty forlorn soul of doomcore with the grating klangs of industrial techno.
Their first two releases both climbed into the #1 spots on the hard techno charts on Beatport and have been filling rooms with dancy despair ever since.
