Know Your MAG 2016: Psychostick

I have never seen Psychostick live, but I am swearing a personal oath to myself as I write this article that I will make it happen one day. They describe themselves as a comedic metal (self-proclaimed “humorcore“) band with a reputation for having hilarious lyrics, heavy riffs, notorious stage antics, and a high energy performance. The music successfully crosses a level of heaviness and aggression found in bands such as Chimaira, Machine Head, and Hatebreed with the wit and humor of The Bloodhound Gang, Tenacious D, and Weird Al Yankovic.

Their latest album IV: Revenge of the Vengeance had me roaring with laughter and head bangin’. Just listen to this amazing cover of Kenny Loggin’s “Danger Zone” from the Top Gun soundtrack. You can hear their love for the original, and if you loved Top Gun growing up you’ll appreciate the added nod in the song to Berlin’s “Take My Breath Away”

It doesn’t get any better than this…or does it? The album is just so much fun I also encourage you to listen to track 10 “NSFW” which is a two lyric expletive masterpiece.

“Obey The Beard” is the second track on IV: Revenge of the Vengeance and you can watch the official video below and treat it as a taste of their upcoming MAGFest performance.

Psychostick members include Rob “Rawrb” Kersey, Josh “The J” Key, Alex “Shmalex” Dontre, and Matty J “Moose” and they perform at MAGFest Saturday at 6:00pm in the Potomac Ballrooms, just after You Bred Raptors? Don’t miss it!
