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.
𝓣hat awesome moment when your demo sounds like a fabled artifact from 1975, yet simultaneously vital as anything native to 2018 and beyond. The future's bright, the future is Psychic Hit.

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.
Includes unlimited streaming of Promo 2018

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
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
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 season bearing fruit
In a lifetime
Emitting from your womb
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”
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
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.
It's so rad to be good friends with musicians you truly admire. We love walking by MD's practice space and hear them craft their breathtaking tunes. This album rips. Can't wait for the next one dudes. Psychic Hit
A new ripping coven has emerged from the Great North and they're called "Rough Spells". Some of the most magnificent doom rock we've heard in a long time. Can't wait to play a show with these folks. Psychic Hit
This... THIS is how you revive classic and traditional metal from the 80s while making it your own. I could rant and rave for a mini novel's worth of words about why this album is just... impossibility good. I've had to retract so much because of how long winded I got. Please just give it a shot if it's within the subgenres you like. playfulpooka
