Psychonaut - Biography




Psychonaut is a psychedelic post-metal collective from Mechelen, Belgium. Their signature sound is heavily influenced by 70's bands like Led Zeppelin and Pink Floyd, but also draws inspiration from more modern sources like Tool and Amenra.

Even though the band only consists of a traditional three-piece line-up, they are known to deliver a constantly compelling live show that grabs you by the throat from the first second to the last. Contrast and variation are the two main anchors on which they base their musical ideas. Raw, convincing and designed to create a perpetually fascinating experience, often combining their wall of sound with visual landscapes and light shows by like-minded artists.

Since 2013, they have released two physical EP's - 24 Trips Around the Sun (2014) and Ferocious Fellowman (2016) - which they have performed live throughout Belgium and The Netherlands. Desertfest, Rock Herk and Alcatraz Festival are only a few of the stages they have conquered in the past.

Psychonaut has now just released their debut full album Unfold The God Man on Pelagic Records on March 6, 2020. Unfold The God Man is an intricate concept album trackling philosophical and existential themes, and ultimately exploring mankind's re-ascencion to a higher level of consciousness. The nearly 70-minute-long album contasins material from over 3 years of incessant writing, arranging and record.
