Hometown: Studio City, CA (USA)

About:

In late 2003 GRAF ORLOCK formed as an answer to monotony of "heart felt" lyrics and "sincere" prose. By pushing the envelope of the burgeoning cinema–grind genre, GRAF ORLOCK balance on the illusory edge of relevance and complete absurdity, longing for the heyday of late 80s and early 90s action movies, and the artistry of thematic creativity contained therein. Exploring issues as wide spread as terrorism, cybernetic revolution, inter–planetary colonialism, and psychotic delusion, GRAF ORLOCK investigate the nether regions of the human condition. Through the medium of film, they articulate an increasingly radical view of the world around them, forming a brutal social commentary of the dwindling present, and a speculatively pessimistic outlook of the future ahead.
