Der Mann hinter Eiterherd ist eine Säule der Grazer Subkultur. Seine Musik ist brachial-anarchisch-experimentell, versetzt mit Samples und kann am besten zu Atari Teenage Riot verglichen werden. Auch die Wahl seines Pseudonyms "Karl Amok" legt eine ideologische Nähe beider Acts nahe. Eiterherd legt wert darauf, seine Kunst mit Anreizen zum Nachdenken und politischen Botschaften zu verknüpfen.

Eiterherd über sich

Zitat von der Webpage http://eiterherd.info/ : "Eiterherd has been involved with experimental music since 1994, when he started off spinning electronic Hardcore/Gabber around Graz/Austria as well as in Maribor/Slovenia. At that time in 1995 he started focussing on composing on various trackers on the PC. In 1996 Eiterherd and Gwal founded the label Widerstand Records, which was the first pure electronic music label in Graz. The idea behind Widerstand Records was to deliver unconventional music as well as implementing non-profit orientated ways of doing record business and having various political messages.

The first release on the label was a limited (500) split 12inch vinyl featuring the label founders Gwal and Eiterherd. It was released in October 1996 and was sold rather quickly. The follow up releases came out in early 1997 and were solo 12inch EPs by Gwal and Eiterherd. In March a sublabel was founded: Silent Revolution Records. In 1998 Gwal and Eiterherd split up and Gwal founded his own label Dusk Records. Eiterherd continues to manage Widerstand Records. In Easter 1998 he composed his first full-length album in one weekend using samples from the film 1984 (based on a novel by George Orwell). The album was released as a co- production with Praxis Records, and was titled 1984 vs. 1999. The 1000 copies of this double-12inch were sold fast and the responses to the album were quite good. The album contained many links to webpages (politics, security, hacking, information, etc..), which were printed on the back of the cover. Worldwide communication became more important than local activities and he established global contacts from Poland to Australia, America, Japan and so on.. In the last couple of years, Widerstand has continued to put out records by artists Eiterherd deems important. He has also played out extensively in Europe and also organized the Widerstand/PeaceOff USA Tour 2001, where Rotator,Slam and Eiterherd played gigs all over the States. 2 other sublabels were founded too: reek.org and pornoir.com."
