HYPNOS 69 (Be) 
Progressive Psych Rock band from Leuven,Belgium./

Over the past ten years, Hypnos 69 acquired a loyal following wherever they appeared live and one of the band's greatest thrills to date has been the number of venues which immediately request their return and the new fans who instantly fall in love with the band. Their subsequent releases gave them a lot of attention from specialized radio stations and magazines all around the world. Hypnos 69 played hundreds of gigs in Belgium and around, visited some of Europe's finest rock clubs and outdoor & indoor rock festivals including Burg Herzberg Festival (Breitenbach), Roadburn 10th Anniversary (013, Tilburg), Swamp Room Mania (Hannover), Symforce II (013, Tilburg), Crescendo Festival (St Palais sur Mêr), Psychedelic Avengers Festival (Berlin), Stoned from the underground (Erfurt), Sauzipf rocks (Austria). They shared the bill with bands like Motorpsycho, Focus, Hawkwind, Opeth, Brant Bjork and The Bros, Space Ritual, 35007, Dozer, Five Horse Johnson amongst others.The band and musicians were asked to perform with respected musicians as Ed Mundell (Monster Magnet), Alfredo Hernandez (QOTSA, Kyuss, Yawning Man) and Sergio Chotsourian (Los Natas). Guitarist/vocalist Steve Houtmeyers was recently asked to join California jam band Ten East, which includes Gary Arce (Yawning Man, Sort of Quartet) and Greg Ginn (Black Flag).

Hypnos 69 covers a broad territory from Space Jazz, over Prog influenced hard Psych Rock, to more laid back tunes with a spaced out Pink Floyd edge. They are often linked to the stoner-scene, but these four Belgian guys evade that label by embracing so many different forms of music and taking the best aspects of rock over the past 30 years and refine them into a sound of their own, which just never gets boring. "They sound so damn retro, unbelievably melodic and timelessly beautiful". However, Hypnos 69 has not forgotten how to rock. They are extremely gifted musicians with a passion for playing music, who put their soul, their whole being into their performance on stage. When you've visited one of their shows, you'll know they're capable of conjuring up a massive wall of sound whilst keeping a high level of clarity. They manage to appeal to music lovers from different genres, and they always deliver top class rock'n roll.
