Master Ham If you've ever wondered what Heart would have sounded like if their main influences were "Killers" era Maiden and "Sad Wings..." era Priest, well wonder no longer. Fresh for 2018, a real zinger straight out of 1978. Rad!! Favorite track: Plateau.

  • "Fortune's Wheels" (2nd Pressing) | Contraband Edition
    Record/Vinyl + Digital Album

    This is the ULTRA-LIMITED, ULTRA-RARE second pressing of "Fortune's Wheels" (AKA Promo 2018).

    Several months ago, our ex-record label secretly repressed "Fortune's Wheels" without our knowledge or consent. The label was selling the records to collectors within a private pressing vinyl group.

    We had no idea the label was doing this. They did not ask our permission, and by the looks of it, they had no intention of telling us.

    Thankfully, a fan alerted us to this situation. From there we successfully recovered the remaining albums not already sold to private collectors.

    The label was selling this pressing for the exorbitant price of $70 USD (€60). However, we are offering this pressing for the same price as the first pressing.

    Although this repress was unexpected, we are happy to offer this recovered "contraband" directly to our fans and supporters today.

    Here is what is included:
    ·Handmade 12" Lathe Cut w/coral red effect
    ·Single 12" jacket with black flood inside
    ·Full-color double-sided insert
    ·Black Poly lined inner sleeve
    ·Hand-numbered in red _/30
    ·Housed in deluxe PVC sleeve
    ·Limited to ~ 14 copies (only 30 in existence!)

    Thank you for supporting independent bands. You keep our community thriving.

The Fool 07:05
We live in a hellworld Or so you say Con men claim that you long for yesterday What’s your anger? Is it real? Who’s jingoistic, foolish words did you steal? Succumb to a lower vibration Killing off a generation You gave it away It’s your life Running out of time You’ll never get it back Your mind is poison It’s far too late Though there’s an antidote You’d rather trust the snakes You always will be Have always been Cannon fodder sent to die for richer men Return my life to me It’s my sacrifice You have been given this And it’s your last chance You made your bet and look How now it is killing you This is a broken world you’ve inherited And what you choose to do will be Your sad legacy This is a broken world we’ve inherited And what we choose to do will be Our legacy You played The Fool For their regimes You mouthed the words And dashed your dreams There is no one else to blame Beating your chest as the world goes up in flames
Early memories are making me feel That I’m not bound to what I’ve been given Calafia, I turn westward to you Your paradise is calling me Are you all that you claim to be? I want to live and breathe more easily Manifest and trip on dreams Eat the honey, taste the cream Take a ride on Fortune’s motorbike She’s the realest bitch on wheels When she smiles take her deal Used to want to die ‘cause somebody’s truth was my lie The night is black velvet Take my ego and shelve it Different landscapes, higher stakes Any luck is what you make
Plateau 05:47
Look up at the steep, red climb In the stars there could be a sign Now I wish my heart would shine It’d make me easier to find Crooked corner in me Is tripping my singing sting Crisis calls to bring me back to higher ground Yet it feels good to be down somehow If it happened I know what I’d do Fill the tank and drive until The week is through In the lake in the valley Do you see your pain reflected to you? Look deeper and you’ll see me Holding the stones that sink to the bottom In the shadow My love is taking root The revival The season bearing fruit In a lifetime Emitting from your womb The reminder Following you to the tomb There is nowhere To turn but there’s Something to learn To be grounded Or leave it all behind? My hopes go up From my core to the rind Did you salvage All you could of something good? The smoke goes up Making ashes of “would”
The Whip 04:43 video
Seein’ inside of you and you and you To tell you the truth you’re afraid to see me I am the Phoenix I am the Whip Domina Magna Inamorata Do what most of ya won’t do Do what you’re not willing to Playin’ your role under my heel But we both know I’m workin’ for you Give ‘em a show Build ‘em up real good Taking the reins And getting paid How can you ignore What we both know? I am not your Service top Is it worth it To give it up? Who loses more? Seekin’ and living a dream that’s coming true Ready yourself to fall into the web You don’t even Know what you need A breakthrough will come For both you and me


Imagine a crazy alternative reality where Stevie Nicks held impromptu late night jam sessions with Thin Lizzy. Envision a fantasy world where Judas Priest reinterpreted “Satori Part I” instead of “Diamonds and Rust”. If a super fan got hold of these wild recordings and put them on a bootleg mixtape, that might give you an idea of what Psychic Hit’s debut demo “Promo 2018” sounds like.

With great ambition, the band revs it to the four corners of the rock universe. The demo opens with a doom-laden power epic, “The Fool”, followed by a jaunty hook-infused roller, “Fortune’s Wheels”. Third in line is a labyrinthian prog-folk turns hard rock epode, “Plateau”. And last, but certainly not least, arrives their anthemic stadium ripper, “The Whip”. This demo does indeed what it should - it demonstrates the band’s formidable songwriting prowess. In an era where genres are rigidly defined, such a sonic array in one recording is extremely rare. Psychic Hit is cleary keen to transmogrify and to break free.

Although their sound is heavily influenced by both 70s greats and rarities, this demo is anything but anachronistic. Like modern contemporaries such as Kadavar, Hot Lunch, and Hällas, Psychic Hit endeavors to recast rock music in their own image, rather than to just simply imitate eras past.

Self-recorded in 2 ½ days (July 2018) at the now defunct Oakland, CA studio “Secret Bathroom”, Psychic Hit is thrilled to present their very first recording to the masses.
