Hypnotic Nausea is an experimental heavy rock band from Greece (Athens) with electronic and ambient elements in their sound. The band was formed in August 2013 and in May 2015 they recorded live their first concept album Hypnosis as an attempt to capture the analog feel of their sound. Their main focus is to create soundscapes with their music, which will function as a highlight in the general idea of conceptual art.
Apart from the music, all the band’s artwork are created by their bass player George P. (Gmonkey Cartoon). Two days and one year ago Hypnotic Nausea released their second concept album The Death Of All Religion.
