Born in the east of France in 2002, Psychanoïa are 4 musicians fascinated by progressive metal/rock.
Out in 2004, their first record, eponymous, is an instrumental concept-album mainly influenced by the tenors of prog’ rock: Pink Floyd, Yes, Camel, Rush, Marillion or still Dream Theater for the metal side of several titles.
The leaving of the original keyboard player after the release of this first record leads three other members to give them new plans.
In 2008, the band returns, without keyboard player but a singer, and brings out the second album " Nemesis ". The compositions remain direct progressive rock-metal but win in coherence and simplicity to serve vocal melodies. Unfortunately, the man left the band without any scenes and live gigs...
At the end of 2010, the band shares the stage with a keyboard player-singer, Ivan Jack (Projekt One, Lifeseeker, Foreign Rock Opera), during an evening. Enthused by his experience, his human and musical qualities, the members suggest him to join Psychanoïa. The band is finally complete with the 4th perfect member which it always looked for. A new era opens then.
Since 2011, this new line-up works on new compositions to play live as quick as possible a brandnew set. The current pieces, more inspired by the new progressive wave (Porcupine Tree, Pain of Salvation, Opeth, Ayreon, Klone...), represent the evolution of their musical journey, begun more than ten years ago.
A 3-tracks EP had been released in 2012 with new songs to promote the work of the band in professional ways... Some great scenes have been played at the time...
Now, in March 2017, their 3rd album called “Unreal seas” is finally out and will show the world their passion and work to make coloured and emotional music, between heavy power and thin melodies... Let’s take a trip with the four guys, and let’s share their everlasting dreams...
