There's a particular style of Psytrance that is very difficult to categorize. It sounds like an easy-going Darkpsy, simple and slower, darker and more aggressive than Full On, deep like a progressive track, but with much more speed, power and crazy effects.
Apparently people call it UK Full On or UK psytrance since it's originated in United Kingdom and it's popular there as well.
Another name I personally call it is Doof Style.
The main reason is that I've heard other psyheads in the past calling it like this.
Doof is an Israeli label with most of its releases having that distinct sound. Doof is not the only label that release this kind of Psytrance, but it's definitely the most known hence the name.
Maybe UK style psytrance and "Doof" psytrance are not exactly the same, but in my opinion they have so many similarities that I consider them the same subgenre.
Notice the lack of melodies and climaxes and the characteristic lead sounds.
