Stephan Reminds me a bit of early Judas Priest albums with borrowings from the progressive/psychic- and Doom Rock. Favorite track: Constellation.

Proto with a capital P. Shades of Led Zep, Scorpions Blue Oyster Cult and an infusion of metal with a touch of Judas Priest. Awesome.

Livin' On 02:56
You think you’ve seen the last of me But I’m comin’ after you I am what hasn’t yet been bred out Spirit lives on in me Livin’ on, Channeling, Trying to remember everything I won’t lie down And just take it Shootin’ the breeze Wasting time In this sea of banality Shame will kill you Guilt is fine Let it go, get in flow Livin’ on, Channeling, Trying to remember everything I won’t lie down And just take it I want the island, I want the wild naked, I want no possession Livin’ on Well I’m livin’ on Livin’ on…

Singing so high Cause it's what you like Been a long time since I wrote for you Baby didn’t think she could find the right One to join in her fire Had me waiting for her to leave the girl I said, “You’ll come around…” Honestly say that you can find a way Into my wild heart My ruse and my trouble My muse and my lover Where’ve you been since my last lifetime? Pack it babe, gonna take you away Uriah Heep, Pegasus, High Tide You had me at Aphrodite’s Child You need a straight shooter cause your flame burns blue You’re my true blue Honestly say that you can find a way This is a wild heart My ruse and my trouble My muse and my lover You pulled me from my nightmare You took me by my hand Now we’re flying down the highway The 101 all day You make me levitate babe Then fall back into you Are you my constellation My lunar love elation? I’ve seen your light Come on over babe You’re gonna sweep me away

Orocovis 06:28
What happened on that night Something I can’t seem to say What is in my mind? My return took you away Been a heavy time away I’m diggin’ deeper, finding decay So, I go, but your blood runs in my veins And I know that I will not be the same Every obstacle is wisdom disguised Been a heavy time away Diggin’ deeper, finding decay So, I go, but your blood runs in my veins And I know that I will not be the same Every obstacle is wisdom disguised Feel it or else you will regret it It’s the only way to get aligned We will see What will come from decay Every obstacle is wisdom disguised You’ll remember And I’ll remember

Words like lightning Frightful as the thunder Your game, your deal My heart torn asunder Oh, no, no Here we go again Broken promises from my so-called friends Meager rations That’s all you are handing me Please… no, I don’t need it Same old excuse Nothing new Thought that I knew you Left for dead Empty vastness I accept what I need Rather than expecting what I want Oh, no, no Here we go again Broken promises from my so-called friends We all live in our “reality” The drama of who you are trying to be Same old excuse Nothing new Thought that I knew you Left for dead Same old excuse Nothing new Thought that I knew you Left for dead I might just forgive you If I feel it for ya I don’t know I just might forgive you If I’m feelin it for ya

Hand of Fate 05:54
Hold onto the Hand of Fate And let your heart be free Lionesses dwell in calm uncertainty What you're told Conspiracies of olde Holding so much for all of those reckoning with you Do you think they know what you are going through? Fear unlearned Let essence be heard Ego is pitfall You’re too strong to fall for that You’ve given much more than you have gotten back Forget all of the layers of Who you think you should be Despite what you think, loving you is easy When you meet the teeth in the sea Keep on turning inward That’s the good work now The truth is the look in The look in your eyes The body keeps the score The candle yearns To show you more Hearing all Everybody’s thoughts Her whose pain has crossed oceans And landed on your shore Perhaps simply lacks The words of love indebted to her

Heavy smokin’ wildfires No one’s jokin’ This is dire Buy N95s to stay alive Who will profit? Who is deprived? California is burnin’ to the ground California, will ya turn around? Techies takin’ all the housing Trust fund babies go carousing Land of milk and land of honey Gentrifiers blow their money California burnin’ to the ground California, will ya turn around? Like roses that refuse to wilt and die Like thorns diggin’ deep into your side You can’t kill the People’s Will We will find a way here still Together, though it may take time Gasping for air Killing ourselves credits

about

Will the Oakland underground suffer the same fate as its culturally scorched sister-city, San Francisco? Psychic Hit says, “Fuck Off.” Erected from the shimmering lawlessness of the East Bay rock and metal scenes, Psychic Hit beckons the listener to come out and play (but don’t forget your whip).

Heavy riff-inclined guitars, walloping drums, an undercurrent of synth, and sneering, snarling vocals of the kind you could imagine if Stevie Nicks had had a penchant for psychedelics instead of blow, or if Shocking Blue’s Mariska Veres was possessed by bacchanalian demons.

Think early Priest; think Scorpions before they met the CIA. As far as modern comparisons go, Psychic Hit fits neatly into the realm of talent like Lucifer, Hallas, and Kadavar. But think less Euro-pretty perfectionism and more buck-wild, raw Californian conviction.

Founded by lead guitarist Andrea Genevieve (Purple Rhinestone Eagle) and vocalist/violinist Ariana Jade (Nik Turner’s Hawkwind), Psychic Hit features bassist Melanie Burkett (Ovvl), drummer Justin Divver (Funeral Chant), with their newest member Jake Palladino (Pins of Light) joining the crew on rhythm guitar and synth.

Psychic Hit now presents Solutio, their new album that might just also be your favorite old album.

Recorded at San Francisco’s El Studio and Oakland’s Santo Studio, and engineered by Big Business’s Phil Becker and Psychic Hit’s own Justin Divver, Solutio sees the band refining their proto/prog/doom/psych tendencies into a philosopher’s stone of transcendent riffs, druidic opera, and a heartbeat of pure energy.

Simultaneously ornate and tough as nails—Psychic Hit are a street corner poet in leather pants, a shot of whiskey with a whiskey chaser, a pastoral landscape with the shepherd chasing his flock as they run off a cliff.

Solutio is an album that perfectly suits this historical moment. Solutio is anthemic and orchestral. Headbanging yet cosmic. It’s about love in an age of madness and hysteria. Rebirth in the midst of death. An alchemical solution that’s both heady with nostalgia and thoroughly modern, Solutio is a love letter to Psychic Hit’s influences as well as their postmodern manifesto.
