Dizzy Mystics is the winners of the Western Canadian Music Awards’ Metal / Hard Music Artist of the year for 2020.The band offers a pretty dynamically diverse, tastefully complex, and energetic dose of adventurous hard rock with feet moving rhythmic swagger, and stargazing melodies. Line-up: Kyle Halldorson (Vocals, Guitar, Mandolin), Aaron Bacon (Bass) and Robert Schau (Drums). Dizzy Mystics announce a brand new track, revealing it only with a video showing the live-off-the-floor performance.
This single Centre Of The 8 is a tease of the next Dizzy Mystics’s album, which follows 2019’s groovy and psychedelic Wanderlost. The band is certain that the high energy video will captivate listeners, as they comment:
«This song is a small example of things to come on the upcoming album. We’ve upped the ante on heaviness, breathing room, and melodic/emotional depth. Enjoy!
The video was recorded live at Beyond Boundaries Academy in Winnipeg, Canada, with help from Clint Chaboyer (sound engineer/mixer) and Sean Perrun (cinematographer/director/editor) from Red Tie Productions. It gives listeners a look at what to expect from a live show: a wide range of 70s vocals, funky bass lines, and psychedelic rock riffs that will catapult you into a realm of dreamy, esoteric, progressive rock.
Dizzy Mystic is lovely weird, interesting, and nourishing, fans of Tool, Primus, and Frank Zappa should keep an eye and ear out for the next album from Dizzy Mystics.

As the recipe implies, rock music is the spoon that stirs the soup, and no genre (or spice) is out of the question for Dizzy Mystics.

«Mysticism aside, this band certainly got the dizzy part right! The Winnipeg rock quartet Dizzy Mystics offer up a staggering musical concoction that, considering its progressive and experimental flair, is surprisingly radio-ready. Think Rush and Primus drinking wine with Tool before dropping acid with Frank Zappa and checking out a jazz club with Steely Dan. Dizzying, right? Jokes aside, front man Kyle Halldorson, guitarist Alexandre Joyal, drummer Jeffrey Laird and bassist Aaron Bacon have some serious chops and, with the right amount of work, gigging and outside help, this Canadian act has the potential to not only see the end of the tarmac, but to also take off!», according to PureGrainAudio.
