Bio

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

What a fine slab of metal. Gotta love the hint of Alice Cooper-esque schock-rock poetics thrown in there. This is a killer band, worthy of worldwide recognition!

Pummeling drums...killer riffs...and insane vocals coupled with the juciest guitar solos you'll hear. PSYCHONAUT ticks all the boxes. These guys are a force to be reckoned with! Crank this tune loud and bang your heads, metal compadres!

Holy Hell! I have just discovered PSYCHONAUT and I am blown away!! It's criminal to think talent like this is over-looked while the latest batch of emocore bands clog up the music world with tattoos and crappy music. Psychonaut rock the way Australian bands used to. These guys should be on Soundwave pounding it with the big boys.
