...Of Hard Psych. Anyone who thinks the hippie era was all about peace, love and flowers will have a rude awakening when they hear this blistering collection of frenetic proto-psych-metal. Culled from some of the best underground American hard rock albums of the late '60s and early '70s, it's a bone-shaking, blood-curdling trip from start to finish, featuring some of the toughest riffs and finest guitar solos you've never heard. Featuring "Kingdom Come" from Brooklyn's heavy-metal distortion progenitors Sir Lord Baltimore from their 1970 debut, Cleveland's Granicus with their 1973 screech-boogie proclamation, "You're In America," Detroit's Power Of Zeus with the loose-limbed organs and snaky guitars of "In The Night," and Euclid (from Maine!) with their absolutely chundering, fuzzed-out blues-troll version of "Gimme Some Lovin'" off 1970's Heavy Equipment, and so much more. Guitar stomp, brain-scrambling solos, aerial vocals, thudding bass, and thunderous drums satiate pretty much any craving for skull-pummeling rock heaviness. As one sleeve puts it: RECORDED LOUD TO BE PLAYED LOUDER. Other artists include: Liquid Smoke, Tin House, The Litter, The Finchley Boys, Highway Robbery, Damnation Of Adam Blessing, SRC, Bang, Dragonfly, Steeplechase, Jamul, Haystacks Balboa, Third Power, Yesterday's Children, Head Over Heels, and Landslide.
