Hypnos 69 - legacy - 2010


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.[citation needed] 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.

Gabor Szabo - Dreams (1969) (re-up)

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.

Anima Morte - Upon Darkened Stains (2014)

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.”

Alice Cooper - Killer (1971)

Killer is the fourth studio album by the Alice Cooper band, released in November 1971. The album reached number 21 on the Billboard 200 album chart, and the two singles "Under My Wheels" and "Be My Lover" made the Hot 100 chart.

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.

The Adventures Of Robert Savage - The Adventures Of Robert Savage Vol. 1 (1971)

"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.

The Hobbit Misty Mountains 27 Verse FULL COVER with Lyrics

Lyrics: Misty Mountains Cold

Far over the Misty Mountains cold,
To dungeons deep and caverns old,
We must away, ere break of day,
To seek our pale enchanted gold.

The dwarves of yore made mighty spells,
While hammers fell like ringing bells,
In places deep, where dark things sleep,
In hollow halls beneath the fells.

For ancient king and elvish lord
There many a gleaming golden hoard
They shaped and wrought, and light they caught,
To hide in gems on hilt of sword.

On silver necklaces they strung
The flowering stars, on crowns they hung
The dragon-fire, on twisted wire
They meshed the light of moon and sun.

Far over the Misty Mountains cold,
To dungeons deep and caverns old,
We must away, ere break of day,
To claim our long-forgotten gold.

Goblets they carved there for themselves,
And harps of gold, where no man delves
There lay they long, and many a song
Was sung unheard by men or elves.

The pines were roaring on the heights,
The wind was moaning in the night,
The fire was red, it flaming spread,
The trees like torches blazed with light.

The bells were ringing in the dale,
And men looked up with faces pale.
The dragon's ire, more fierce than fire,
Laid low their towers and houses frail.

The mountain smoked beneath the moon.
The dwarves, they heard the tramp of doom.
They fled the hall to dying fall
Beneath his feet, beneath the moon.

Far over the Misty Mountains grim,
To dungeons deep and caverns dim,
We must away, ere break of day,
To win our harps and gold from him!

The wind was on the withered heath,
But in the forest stirred no leaf:
There shadows lay be night or day,
And dark things silent crept beneath.

The wind came down from mountains cold,
And like a tide it roared and rolled.
The branches groaned, the forest moaned,
And leaves were laid upon the mould.

The wind went on from West to East;
All movement in the forest ceased.
But shrill and harsh across the marsh,
Its whistling voices were released.

The grasses hissed, their tassels bent,
The reeds were rattling--on it went.
O'er shaken pool under heavens cool,
Where racing clouds were torn and rent.

It passed the Lonely Mountain bare,
And swept above the dragon's lair:
There black and dark lay boulders stark,
And flying smoke was in the air.

It left the world and took its flight
Over the wide seas of the night.
The moon set sale upon the gale,
And stars were fanned to leaping light.

Under the Mountain dark and tall,
The King has come unto his hall!
His foe is dead, the Worm of Dread,
And ever so his foes shall fall!

The sword is sharp, the spear is long,
The arrow swift, the Gate is strong.
The heart is bold that looks on gold;
The dwarves no more shall suffer wrong.

The dwarves of yore made mighty spells,
While hammers fell like ringing bells
In places deep, where dark things sleep,
In hollow halls beneath the fells.

On silver necklaces they strung
The light of stars, on crowns they hung
The dragon-fire, from twisted wire
The melody of harps they wrung.

The mountain throne once more is freed!
O! Wandering folk, the summons heed!
Come haste! Come haste! Across the waste!
The king of freind and kin has need.

Now call we over the mountains cold,
'Come back unto the caverns old!'
Here at the gates the king awaits,
His hands are rich with gems and gold.

The king has come unto his hall
Under the Mountain dark and tall.
The Wyrm of Dread is slain and dead,
And ever so our foes shall fall!

Farewell we call to hearth and hall!
Though wind may blow and rain may fall,
We must away, ere break of day
Far over the wood and mountain tall.

To Rivendell, where Elves yet dwell
In glades beneath the misty fell.
Through moor and waste we ride in haste,
And whither then we cannot tell.

With foes ahead, behind us dread,
Beneath the sky shall be our bed,
Until at last our toil be passed,
Our journey done, our errand sped.

We must away! We must away!
We ride before the break of day!
