Η μουσική μιλάει στην καρδιά με όσα η καρδιά έχει μέσα
της κρυμμένα,είναι συνομιλία ανάμεσα στις καρδιές.
Είναι όμοια με την Αγάπη,η δύναμή της αγγίζει όλους τους
ανθρώπους!Οι πρωτόγονοι την τραγουδούσαν μέσα στην έρημο...
The history of Hypnos 69 began at the end of the '80s, when Steve and Dave Houtmeyers played in a political punk oriented band called Massagraf. The band had several line-ups, although Steve and Dave were the only steady members. They released one 7" EP in 1992 and split up that same year. At that time Steve was active with Belgian grindcore pioneers Agathocles (band). Agathocles and Dave started anarcho punk band Intestinal Disease. Both bands toured Europe and South America. By 1994 Steve Houtmeyers decided to quit Agathocles and form his own, more '70s rock oriented band called Starfall. It included Dave Houtmeyers on drums and Tom Vanlaer on bass, and would later become Hypnos 69. By 1995 after doing some local shows, they changed their name to Hypnos 69.
In 2000 the first Hypnos 69 release appeared on the Belgian RocknRollRadio record label entitled Wherever Time has shared it's Trust" on blue 10" EP vinyl. The first full-length CD appeared also on RocknRollRadio in 2002 entitled Timeline Traveller and contains bad ass heavy '70s rock. The band toured with this CD in Germany, The Netherlands, France and Czech Republic.
When the band presented their second full CD Promise of a New Moon on R³ in 2003, Steven Marx was introduced into Hypnos. From being a guest musician he rapidly became a part of the live-set and a new member of the band.
In October 2004 the band decided to make a deal with the German record label ElektroHasch. Their third full CD The Intrigue of Perception, along with a split 10" EP with Germany's Colour Haze was released in November 2004.
In 2006, after extended touring in Scandinavia, Germany, the Netherlands, France, Switzerland, Austria and Italy, the band recorded The Eclectic Measure. The artwork was done by Italian graphic artists Malleus. By November 2006, the band was on hold, due to some personal issues in the band, but after six months decided to tour again. In Autumn 2007 Hypnos 69 toured to promote The Eclectic Measure throughout Europe.
Here, Gabor Szabo ambitiously pairs his outstanding quintet (featuring Jimmy Stewart) with Gary McFarland's subtle string and horn arrangements in a collection of originals, pop covers, and classical reinterpretations. The result is a sort of accessible third-stream music. Szabo has many fine moments, and provides nice spaces for the beautiful guitar solos of Jimmy Stewart.
The third album by Swedish ANIMA MORTE sees the band evolving their moody instrumental songs one step further into the cinematic realm. Rooted in 70’s rock music with symphonic and experimental elements. Following deeper and more complex compositions the tense and melancholic atmosphere contrasts strong and thrilling musical motifs. Using real vintage and rare instruments like the Mellotron, Electric Pianos, Organs and different stringed instruments they create a thick wall of sound that is very much alive!

“Quite frankly, there aren’t enough horror bands out there making this kind of forward-thinking music.”
– Rue Morgue
“The music is brilliantly retro but intoxicatingly modern. Arrangements are near genius, and the production is stellar thereby enhancing the suggestion of supernatural homicide. The mix is robust in that it gives all the instruments their cohesive space. But best of all is the fact that Anima Morte is band whose music is layered with enough complexity that it never grows tiresome to hear.”
“Utilizing varied instrumentation (guitars, drums, bass, synth, piano, Hammond B3 Organ) and layered, dynamic structures, Anima Morte’s songcraft is epic and mature, with endless twists and turns to blissfully drug its listener. I found myself constantly wondering where the band was going to go next, only to be wondrously and pleasantly suprised each and every time.”
– Metal Maniacs
“If you groove on giallo, space out to progressive rock, or just dig old-school electronic instrumental atmospheres, this CD is a must-have for your collection.”
Cooper said in the liner notes of Fistful of Alice and In the Studio with Redbeard, which spotlighted the Killer and Love it to Death albums, that the song "Desperado" was written about his friend Jim Morrison, who died the year this album was released. According to an NPR radio interview with Alice Cooper, "Desperado" was written about Robert Vaughn's character from the movie The Magnificent Seven. "Halo of Flies" was, according to Cooper's liner notes in the compilation The Definitive Alice Cooper, an attempt by the band to prove that they could perform King Crimson-likeprogressive rock suites, and was supposedly about a SMERSH-like organisation. "Desperado", along with "Under My Wheels" and "Be My Lover" have appeared on different compilation albums by Cooper. The song "Dead Babies" stirred up some controversy following the album's release, despite the fact that its lyrics conveyed an "anti-child abuse" message. Musicians such as Jello Biafra and John Lydon have referred to the album as an influence. from Wiki

"The Adventures of Robert Savage" is a very obscure psychedelic rock band from the 70's that hailed from California. There is a lot of heavy fuzz guitar here, excellent riffs and far-out solos, that this guy was obviously heavily influenced by the great Jimi Hendrix. The band consisted of three members. In 1971 they released an album called The Adventures Of Robert Savage, Vol. 1.Robert Savage was obviously influenced by Hendrix and his album is recommended to fans of hard rock trios with inventive guitar parts. It comes in an unusual mediaeval style cover featuring a dragon.
