The term “psychedelic” is derived from the Greek words ψυχή (psyche, “soul”) and δηλοῦν (deloun, “to manifest”), translating to “soul-manifesting”. A psychedelic experience is characterized by the striking perception of aspects of one’s mind previously unknown, or by the creative exuberance of the mind liberated from its ostensibly ordinary fetters. Psychedelic states are an array of experiences including changes of perception such as hallucinations, synesthesia, altered states of awareness or focused consciousness, variation in thought patterns, trance or hypnotic states, mystical states, and other mind alterations. (Wikipedia)

The use of the keyword “psychedelic” on REDEFINE will encompass psychedelia’s role in music, film, art, multimedia, and movement.

USX – The Valley Path Album Review

You know, I’ve been sort of conflicted about the multiple directions metal has gone as of late — none of which involve much of a focus on basic songcraft. It’s probably just because I came of age back in the early ’90s. Back then, loud rock bands threw a bit more vocal melody and track...Read...
