Psyopus is a musical mindfuck!


Stemming from the diabolic metal scene of Rochester, NY - the birthplace of such exaggerated sounds as Kalibas, Sulaco and Lethargy - comes the mathcore extremists known as Psyopus. This project's conception was formed during the fall of 2002 by the unorthodox guitar work of Christopher "Arpmandude" Arp, Rochester's regional winner of 2001's Limp Bizkit Guitarist Search, and the technical absurdness of grind drummer Greg Herman. Finalizing the line up with bass player virtuoso Fred DeCoste and the "in your face" antics of vocalist Adam Frapolli, PsyOpus have become an intrinsic formula for sonically unyielding violence and insanity. Composed of bi-polar dynamics, radical arrangements, avant-garde instrumentation and a melting force of pure speed, Psyopus set out to destroy the molds of extreme metal with unprecedented attitude and conviction. Judge for yourself by means of their debut release "Ideas of Reference" out on Black Market Activities.


The White Light

Written By: Psyopus

i can see my face inside their eyes
cold black, prying into my mind
their holding my thoughts
don't let me think wrongly they know all my weaknesses
now its too late
i'm mentally broken
the torture begins as they lengthen my skin
empty stomach pumped with fluid, eyeballs gouged with sharpened needles
rubber blankets soaked in water, coverding my hollow soul
covering my soul i am
pain the white light is piercing through my brain
crystals gleeming sterile metal so cold on my skin
this cannot be happening
am i dreaming
this cannot be real
someone please wake me up from this twisted nightmare
wake me from this dream, hallucination
mental war with the mind discombobulated visions and thoughts trapped inside the mind i own the white light
