“The atmosphere at PSYCHO was electric. Not only was everybody seeing their favorite bands, but also all of their best friends, and in the most garish environment possible too.” – Metal Injection
PSYCHO LAS VEGAS will make its descent upon the Hard Rock Hotel And Casino Las Vegas in Las Vegas, Nevada from August 18th and run through August 20th, with a special peparty to be held on August 17th.
Flaunting one of the best heavy lineups ever put together for an American festival, PSYCHO LAS VEGAS includes headlining sets from Atlanta goliaths, Mastodon, psychedelic rock legends, The Brian Jonestown Massacre, and heavy metal icon King Diamond performing the zenith Abigail opus in its entirety as a US-exclusive. Additionally, reunited UK doom icons Warning, will grace the fest alongside cult stoner/desert rock unit Slo Burn, fronted by Kyuss’ John Garcia, Sleep, Wolves In The Throne Room, Ace Frehley, Neurosis, Gojira, Corrosion Of Conformity, Pelican, Chelsea Wolfe, Carcass, Dark Castle, Jex Thoth, and over seven dozen of the scene’s most groundbreaking, eclectic, and plainly ruling acts.
Adding to the four-day adventure, the curators of PSYCHO LAS VEGAS have added an additional show featuring cosmic doom trio YOB! The band with lay their purifying riff rituals upon the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino on August 17th directly following the pool party.

YOB released their Clearing The Path To Ascend full-length via Neurot Recordings in 2014. On Clearing The Path To Ascend, YOB is as formidable as they’ve ever been, demanding the tandem attention of mind, body, and soul. Drummer Travis Foster wields his signature rhythmic furor here with bombastic precision while bassist Aaron Rieseberg coils around the sonic tide with an unforgiving churn all the while in a deadly synchronicity with singer/guitarist Mike Scheidt’s uncanny vocal range and its pendulous movement between the triumphant howls of a medieval madman and the earth-splitting growls of a war-battered titan. YOB is love.
SUBROSA is an experimental sludge/doom band from Salt Lake City, a city plagued by the tension of opposites. Within the SUBROSA crucible, sludgy low-end and high-volume lock arms with ultra-melodicism, folk, and experimental elements delivered through the haunting ambience of two electric violins. The band release their For This We Fought The Battle Of Ages album via Profound Lore last year. The most colossal and engrossing SUBROSA album yet, For This We Fought The Battle Of Ages is a stirring and moving sonic monument released during these times and moments of desperation and uncertainty, reflected through the band’s heaviest and darkest sonic tapestry that is the chamber doom unit’s newest album.
