-Guitarist Eddie Glass and drummer Ruben Romano formed NEBULA in 1997 after breaking away from desert rock pioneers Fu Manchu, eventually recruiting bassist Mark Abshire. The power trio specializes in feedback-drenched heavy rock, incorporating liberal doses of Black Sabbath riffery, psychedelia, and space rock. The band released a number of EPs before moving onto full-length albums like 1999's To the Center and 2001's Charged. They've mainly distinguished themselves as a very hard-working live unit
NEBULA creates pure guitar-driven, conscious expanding rock for the 21st century. They are a culmination of their rock forbearers such as Jimi Hendrix, MC5, The Stooges and Mudhoney turned up a notch, taken to the next level and blasting through space. NEBULA spread their gospel through their music and what they are preaching will leave the congregation on the floor.
In 2017 the band decided to reissue three of their crucial early works via Heavy Psych Sounds Records: 1998’s Let it Burn, 1999’s To the Center and 2002’s Dos EPs, which includes the material originally released on 1999’s Sun Creature and a Nebula/Lowrider split.
Followed by the re-release of NEBULA's Charged and the special release of Demos & Outtakes '98-02 in early 2019, in the summer of 2020, after 13 years the band returned with not only a new line-up but also with a brand new full-length called Holy Shit - 9 tracks of pure HEAVY PSYCH explosion !!!.

-Bay Area punk 'n' roll / proto-metal bruisers Hot Lunch dish up kick-your-teeth-in jams straight from the Detroit school of raw power! The group's supercharged, powerfully energetic, no-nonsense rock n’ roll will slap you across the mouth like a stiff shot of bourbon. With its new LP, 'Seconds', Hot Lunch is on a hell-bent mission to create the best party soundtrack in the history of all music. Integrating a more mystical and psychedelic side to its high voltage, fuzz-filled, stone cold jams, 'Seconds' captures the band's hot-as-hell on-stage energy and is an ass-kicking tour-de-force that weaponizes Hot Lunch as noisy rock insurrectionists for these molten, modern times. This is a gloriously thunderous album that refuses to be played quietly. Fuck the cold leftovers, it's time for some scorching Hot Lunch!.

"A glorious tangle of sixties style psych, eighties punk rock, hairy fuzzy proto-metal and seriously shredding guitar mastery" – Aquarius Records.

-Oakland, CA based hard rockin proto-metal sweetheart band, Psychic Hit, was formed in 2017 by guitarist Andrea Genevieve (Queen Crescent, Purple Rhinestone Eagle) and vocalist/violinist Ariana Jade (Hedersleben, Nik Turner’s Hawkwind). Having met through the thriving Bay Area rock n roll network, the tenacious pair began to dream up a project that fused their wide-ranging tastes in music. What resulted was a band that would combine the raw power of early Judas Priest and Scorpions, the melodic sensibilities of Fleetwood Mac, and the esoteric appeal of lesser known acts such as Lucifer’s Friend and Flower Travellin’ Band.
In 2018, the duo was joined by bassist Melanie Burkett (Ovvl) and drummer Justin Divver (Funeral Chant). With the talented rhythm section locked in, the four musicians began to embark on a songwriting enterprise that resulted in their first, self-recorded demo in the fall of that year. After the demo was recorded, the band welcomed fifth member, Jake Palladino (Pins of Light, Hightower), to join Andrea Genevieve on guitar.
Although Psychic Hit’s sound is heavily influenced by both 70s greats and rarities, the band is anything but an anachronism. Like modern contemporaries such as Kadavar, Lucifer, and Hällas, Psychic Hit seeks to recast rock music in their own image, rather than to just simply imitate eras past. In an age where the dark forces of monotony and monocracy loom large on the horizon, Psychic Hit appeals to their listeners to embrace the regenerative, communal power of rock n roll.
