Naxatras (Greece)
Naxatras is a hard psychedelic rock band from Greece. They play a warm psychedelia full of fat grooves, dreamy melodies, heavy riffs and trippy guitar solos all with the vintage touch of the 70's. 
They have been playing since 2012, developing their sound and finally recorded their first full-length album in a 100% analog way at Magnetic Fidelity (a studio in rural northern Greece) with Jesus Agnew, an engineer experienced in the field of analog and DIY recordings. Only analog equipment was used in the recording-mixing-mastering stages of the album. All the songs in the record were performed entirely live during just one day. In 2016 they released their second full length album "II" as well as an EP, once more fully analog and live. 
The band does high-energy live performances combining elements of psychedelic/progressive rock, stoner, funk, jazz and eastern music with a trippy video wall to accomplish full stimulation of the senses. 

Electric Octopus (Belfast) 
"Dripping with breezy hazed reverb and fuzzed out historic blues references, while interlacing both jazz and psychedelia, Electric Octopus have managed to not only find the key, but have opened some doors that have gone unnoticed for far too long.

What Electric Octopus have done is something others so easily fail at, and that’s their innate ability to find the center, build around it, spiral out, swoop back in, nearly giving the listener the feeling of flight, earthly abandonment, and etherial delights that shimmer with an exotic presentation that hesitates not once. Their sound is strikingly fresh, yet in the same breath, if the lights are turned down just low enough, and your head’s in a musically altered space, Electric Octopus will conjure ghosts from Electric Ladyland by Jimi Hendrix, and Super Session by Al Kooper, Mike Bloomfield and Stephen Stills, where with the right eyes, you might just see these cats floating through your living room and smiling with delight." It's Psychedelic Baby Magazine
