brachialilluminator is a loose collective headed by bozkovich who first appeared in the vienna punk/ metal scene in about 1985. he was member in and supporting a lot of bands, some as obscure as the screaming sisters vs. die leber and gebrueder goed and stefan weber, some a little bit closer to the small stardom like the vienna metal outfit malignom.
around 2000 he started the project "brachialilluminator" with a few loose collaborators, resulting in - for a long period- as many concerts as outputs. namely two each... the third cd "alarm! - blaulicht in rio" was released in 2011 and is as sonically diverse as its predecessors "new world order" (2003) and "travels" (2004). though this time, there are more woodwinds, more funk and more swing loosening the metal basics...
generally speaking, the music of brachialilluminator is not easily labelled. some people might call it "avantgarde metal", though you might as well call it "progressive pop" (or anything else). better still, simply expect the unexpected.
