Formed when three Newfoundlanders crossed paths in the Canadian heavy metal capital with Ahmed Saad who hails from the Middle East, the injection of music immediately began to flow through their veins and M.E.C.H. metal was soon born.
“It stands for Middle East Coast Heavy Metal; Our drummer being from the Middle East and the rest of the members being from the east coast of Canada,” explains Stephen Reynolds (bass, vocals). ‘Every single person in this band is a songwriter, so the songs come out with their own feel and develop naturally.’ continues Reynolds. ‘We don’t shackle ourselves to any kind of focused idea, which brings about a sort of honesty in the music not often found in metal.’

Both Andrew Wiens (guitar) and Chuck Labosssiere (guitar/vocals) comment:
Psychotic Gardening return in 2014 with new material and the return of Chuck Labossiere after he filled in with Broken Hope for tour dates in Europe and Canada. Their forthcoming album ‘Hymnosis’ is set for release on May 13th and will follow up 2011’s ‘Humanitorium’ and 2007’s debut ‘Hürdür’.
Featuring nine heavy hitting assaults, ‘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.

“Be sure to see Psychotic Gardening when they invade your town or city. The being in the sky orders you to see them or be prepared to pay with your soul!” – Metal Master Kingdom
“Psychotic Gardening has always been able to deliver crushing, mid-tempo, heavy madness and this teaser tells me its next album won’t disappoint, more info to come!” – Metal Made In Canada
“Menacing, frequently unnerving and atmospheric…” – Winnipeg Sun
