Headquartered in Rome, Italy, Heavy Psych Sounds is the home for some of the finest acts of the international heavy psych, doom, stoner, sludge and space rock scene such as Brant Bjork, Stöner, Bongzilla, Nebula, Nick Oliveri, Yawning Man, Black Rainbows, Acid Mammoth, Belzebong and countless more. While the first editions of Heavy Psych Sounds Fests were held in Italy, the label has since extended its reach to the UK, Belgium, Germany, France, the Netherlands, Austria and California. Founded in 2007 by Black Rainbows frontman Gabriele Fiori, the label has since then established itself as Europe’s #1 purveyor of heavy rock, while also becoming an essential actor of the European live scene with its in-house booking agency, quickly developing band careers inside their roster.
