Formed by Mark De Vattimo (ex Voyager)in Perth, Australia circa 1999. Psychonaut has supported Death Angel, Exodus, Finntroll, Frankenbok, Lord, Armoured Saint. A debut album ‘Masters Of Procrastination’ was recorded during late 2003 and released during early 2004. 2012's ‘Shock ’Em Dead!’ reveals the band’s 14 new tracks of power-speed-thrash-death-rock-metal. Songs such as ‘The Tooth Of Dracula’, ‘False Metal’, ‘The Humungus’ and ‘Darklord Rise!’ and ‘Thrash Metal Zombies’ reveal that already classic Psychonaut heavy metal sound with a modern twist. “Psychonaut have got something about them. An indefinable something, I’ll grant you – so indefinable it might not be obvious to the casual listener – but something nonetheless.” — Micky Strong, Metal As Fuck “If you're a Metal fan of all different genres then PSYCHONAUT is your band. ” — beowolf productions “Psychonaut provide a myriad of hard rocking tunes with humour and fun thrown in on Shock 'em Dead! Anyone tired of the conventional and stale products other bands deliver from album to album should give it a listen.” — Sam Radojcin, loudmag
