It will also soon be featured on Rock Band 3.

Finally, we bring you "Psychedelic"! The result of months of hard work and passion. (Fittingly, since it's actually the birthday for two of the participants.)
A 9-minute rollercoaster ride through the dreams and nightmares only drugs can provide, brought to you in a trippy fashion.
Take an imaginary joint and embark on a journey soaring into the heavens, only to be cast down headfirst into hell.

This is the result of hours and hours of hard work. It was composed (guitars mainly) between early September and late October 2011. We spent many evenings in the studio just recording drums in November, and we recorded the various instruments (and programmed the VSTi) from then on until about New Year's. It took several months to mix and master it, but here it is!

This is part of a school project in which we try to explore the market today. The song will be for sale on iTunes and Rock Band 3, and while it's of course free to watch or listen to it on Youtube and Spotify, we greatly appreciate any support!

Hagroth and God's Almighty Psychonauts is:
Joel Hagroth (SwedishBerzerker) - Most of the music and vocal melody, production/engineering, guitars, VSTi, some of the bass guitar, congas, some of the lyrics, cover art.
Emil Sjöberg (BarbecueJr) - Most of the lyrics, the concept, vocals, vocal harmonies, tons of ideas, some of the VSTi, promotion including Rock Band 3, most of the cover art, and is the founder of the project.
Joakim Jägerhult (MoterfuckingSwede) - Drumming performance and most of the rhythm, lyrics, co-engineering, ferocious spitter.
Alexander Pohl - Some of the lyrics, some of the bass guitar, epic desperate screams.

All have of course also contributed with great ideas and feedback in the process.

And many thanks to Hongryu at Deviantart.com for his stunning painting, "Mushroom Forest" (http://hongryu.deviantart.com/art/mus...). It was used by permission and according to terms.

Everything except guitars was recorded using "Logic Pro" in the studio at Nova, Vallentuna. It was also mixed and produced in said program and location. Project settings were 24-bit/96kHz, exported to a .WAV-file with 16-bit/48kHz quality using Apogee dithering.

The cover art was edited and made in Photoshop CS5. Sony Vegas Pro 11.0 was used to make the video. Rendered as a 720x1080 AVC 25p MP4 video using 1:1 pixel ratio, 2 reference frames, "High", 10Mbps CBR, CPU-encoded, with 48 kHz, 320kbps AAC audio.

Guitars were recorded using the equipment below through a Shure SM57 and a E-MU 0404 interface to Cubase 6 on a Windows 7 desktop. The original audio quality was 24-bit/96kHz. The classical guitars and congas were recorded using the same approach.
