Hypnos 69 is a space rock/psychedelic rock quartet based out of Belgium. Forming in 1994, this band would draw heavily from 1960s and 1970s psychedelic and space rock. In a career spanning nearly twenty years the band would release five studio albums all the while performing all over Europe as a marquee act.
The name was taken from the ancient Greek god of Sleep and Subconsciousness. The number 69 stands for equilibrium and stability; properties that can be retrieved in the marked sound of the band.
"Kanaan is a Norwegian power trio that has been playing
their own form of free-flowing psychedelia, heavy stoner-rock and jazz-influenced krautrock for the last few years.
They´ve released six albums since 2019 and have played
over 100 concerts in ten different countries since they emerged as a powerful live act on the European music scene
in 2019. This spring they won the Norwegian grammy awards
for their heavy stoner-rock album "Earthbound" and recently
released the experimental album Diversions vol 1: Softly Through Sunshine. The latter features the talented Norwegian
jazz keyboardist Håvard Ersland and is a document of a fruitful

Belgium's hardest rocking creatures, GNOME, are back with their majestic second outing, King. After the succes of 2018 debut Father of Time, demonstrating their talent stacking riffs like lego blocks, and conquering stages across Europe with their shin-kicking live sets, the power trio from Antwerp raise the bar for their second album, sounding bigger, catchier and heavier, with more room for vocals (including special guest Oskar Logi from The Vintage Caravan) but never losing sight of the quest for the golden riff.
This silly looking, greasy smelling, small but heavy three-headed being packs a bigger punch then their name suggests: combining sing-along hooks,
wall-of-sounds guitars, booming drums and thundering bass with adventures rhythmic twists they brew their unque and ultimately satisfying potion of sludge and stonerrock.
Grandma's Ashes is a female power trio of alternative / progressive rock. For almost 5 years, the band has been inviting people to an introspective and transcendent
musical journey on the roads of France. Their first EP,
"The Fates", released in January 2021 has shown a
singular vision of a modern and narrative rock.
On the dark, sometimes sarcastic texts, the voices of
the three musicians intermingle. The clear and melodic
lead vocals are sublime in contact with a heavy and
meticulous instrumentation. If it constitutes a first
piece to the edifice or rather, to the gothic cathedral
that Grandma's Ashes is building, the Grandma's Ashes,
the group has not however finished to enchant you.
MOJO & THE KITCHEN BROTHERS
We are Mojo and the Kitchen Brothers. A 5-headed omnium gatherum of eclectically inspired music freaks from Belgium cooking up a late 60's early 70's minded mix of heavy progrock soaked in psychedelia. The smells emanating from our kitchen recall bands like Black Sabbath, Wishbone Ash and Pink Floyd. However, M&TKB is more than a nostalgia trip. Firmly tuned into the spring of our contemporary psych rockers, Mojo & the Kitchen Brothers' catchy tunes, proggy riffs, deafening drums, roaring basslines and spacy, triple-guitar jams take the listener on a Janus-faced journey through the limbo between past and present.
