Last year, the label came up with an idea that most people would file under “megalomaniac” - they started a split series; splits are already difficult enough as they should show the strengths of each participant (usually two) and also add up to something more than your average single-song release by two bands. The participants and their body of work should go together, their attitudes and their aim in doing such releases. Heavy Psych Sounds by now has released two such with the third one to be out soon and man, these releases are really one gigantic ride also because of the bands involved.
To get the things together, one really has to stay calm in order not to be too enthusiastic because of the level of perfection involved in this series: Heavy Psych Sounds have always teamed up a rather well-known band with an awesome “newcomer” and each band and the bands deliver somewhat between 5 and 20 minutes of music. The series has grown with each release and the next one will definitely blow your minds. But, step by step.

“This recording will make you feel sensations that you have never experienced. We advise to listen to it at high volume, in the dark and possibly with lit candles. Don’t be afraid to see strange things, it’s part of the game!” (from the cover of Vol. 2)
