Psychotaxi: Performance & Heavy Mental Poetry, Psychotaxi gives lifts to strangers and friends.
The music project Psychotaxi was founded in 2010 by Andrea Bordoni, Luca Bresciani, Lamberto Carboni and Virgile Mermoud, with the release of the namesake EP - also available in free download - which included 3 instrumental tracks balancing hard, psychadelic and progressive metal.
They raise and travel with their mind, then descend, always leaving something in exchange.
Psychadelic hyper amplified echoes, obsessive riffs, electronica with a strongly pulp-tinged vision.
In 2015 they are releasing their first album with Subsphera, "Effect of the Head’s Mass": 6 tracks, three instrumental and 3 composed with Benigni. Gianpiero Risico, on saxophone, and Emanuele “Manolo” Cedrone on percussion instruments, were a precious contribution to the album, which shows the band's inclination to space rock and the visionary nature typical of bands likes Hawkwind, Can, Tool, and Ozric Tentacles. But it also includes the search for a new approach to such a prestigious and committed musical tradition. All this clearly represents the two faces of the band: between mathematical instrumental rides, visionary precision, phanta-urban environments an alternating with the rock-reading pieces of the author, in line with the heavy Mental Poetry project. A poetic research which aspires to a new bond with music, making the latter not simply a complement, but an accurate counterpoint to words that aim to be as hard as rocks, as sharp as blades, and as graceful as butterflies.
