Info for Cyberfunk!
In preparation for over a year and recorded during a series of sleep-deprived three day sessions, the group concentrate on the essentials on the twelve new songs that comprise CYBERFUNK!, bundling their raw live energy into a dynamically dense release that sounds like vintage madness of the best possible kind and fits the moment in perfect fashion. Despite what its title might suggest, CYBERFUNK! was created in a more or less classic manner, with the three musicians performing together in one room, just the way it should be, with a minimum of overdubs resulting in a genuine band sound that is almost distilled to its essence, with the voice of singer/guitarist Yves Krismer standing out even more than on the bands previous recordings. The career trajectory of Mother's Cake's has seen them play hundreds of concerts from Manchester to Melbourne and Mumbai, including shows with Wolfmother, Iggy & The Stooges, Omar Rodriguez-López, Alice In Chains and Limp Bizkit. They have also released three successful studio albums plus a near-megalomaniacal (in the best possible sense) Live at Pompeii-style live set recorded on the ski jump in Bergisel, Austria in 2018. The first two singles from 'Cyberfunk!' have already made it onto the 'Tracks Of The Week' list published by Classic Rock's online portal Loudersound, while the first of them ('Toxic Brother') is currently on the A list at Primordial Radio. It also made the A list at Feedback Radio and has been played on regional rock shows around the UK.
"Truth be told, Cyberfunk! is a demanding listen and one could easily argue that it never truly finds its footing with so many drastic U-turns and complimentary nods to other artists’ but when it’s written at this level of quality it can be hard to hold a grudge. Difficult not to recommend to any fan of any type of rock music, the Austrian triplet has outdone themselves in a grand homage to the very cornerstones of music they had likely plucked their own signature sound from. Trying to consume this as a traditional record going from point A to point B is a task of redundancy, the best course is to sit back and enjoy the show in all its weird harmonious discordance – it’s one hell of a ride."

ounded in late 2008, Mother’s Cake signed with GAB Music. Their debut “Creation’s Finest” (release-date: 26-10-2012) was produced by Georg Gabler and got featured by Ikey Owens († 2014, member of The Mars Volta & Jack White). Creation’s Finest created a big stir in national and international music press and ensured Mother’s Cake a firm stand in the business.

In 2013, they got awarded with the “Austrian Newcomer Award″ and played many sold-out shows including support gigs for Iggy and the Stooges, Omar Rodriguez Lopez Group, Deftones and Tito & Tarantula.
