After lying low, deliberately and methodically to prepare new material while vocalist Chuck Labossiere filled in with Broken Hope for tour dates in Europe and Canada. Winnipeg’s death metal troopers Psychotic Gardening are proud to announce their return in 2014 with their forthcoming album ‘Hymnosis’ set for release on May 13th to follow up 2011’s ‘Humanitorium’ and their 2007 debut â€˜HÃ¼rdÃ¼râ€™.
Featuring nine heavy hitting assaults that include a cover of Deathâ€™s â€˜Open Casketâ€™ with a guest appearance from Tim Roth (Into Eternity) and Chuck Wepfer (Broken Hope), ‘Hymnosis’ is sure to bang skulls with its full-throttle, go-for-the-throat execution of doom and black metal. In this release the band digs into its death metal roots for a concoction of their most vicious material while still hammering down on doom-laden monster riffs.

Both Andrew Wiens (guitarist) and Chuck Labossiere (vocals/guitar) comment on the upcoming release.
â€œHymnosis, for us, is a defining album. It has some of the fastest stuff weâ€™ve ever done and some of the most dark, heavy and crushing doom as well. This release is dynamic and we take you on a journey, the way a record was meant to. If weâ€™ve done our job – and I think we have – you feel like it has taken you somewhere that somehow life has changed, shifted and moved underneath you.â€ – Andrew Wiens
“This album is special to me because I feel the band has outdone itself creatively. These guys really understand what Psychotic Gardening is all about artistically and have poured so much attitude and spirit into it. this is a record that’s all its own, something that’s unique to each member’s style.” – Chuck Labossiere
