Outburn magazine describes them as "enthralling, first-rate modern rock," Apple.com as "soulful rock with a subtle electronic backdrop" and the Denver Post as music that "pushes boundaries," Hypnogaja writes and performs "melodic, sophisticated songs that cater to no trend” according to GRAMMY®-nominated songwriter Wendy Waldman (Garth Brooks, Vanessa Williams), producer of the band’s critically acclaimed album, Acoustic Sunset – Live at the Longhouse.
Truth Decay, Hypnogaja’s fifth studio recording, is a science fiction-tinged concept album in which all the songs revolve around the central story of a world's dramatic, apocalyptic end and how life cycles into new chapters, sometimes with sudden force. The album contains thirteen new songs, including "Welcome to the Future," which features cellist Richard Dodd of The Section Quartet (Decca/Universal).
They have been featured on several shows, such as: America’s Next Top Model (CW), Carrie (NBC), Cold Creek Manor (Touchstone), Dirt (F/X), FlatOut: Ultimate Carnage (Warner Bros. Interactive), Las Vegas (NBC), One Life To Live (ABC), Roswell (WB), Sex And The City (HBO), The Looking Glass Wars (Scholastic), Tru Calling (FOX), Valentine (Warner Bros.), and many others. The band’s song “Dark Star” (from Truth Decay) is featured in an upcoming episode of the critically acclaimed Starz original TV series, Crash, based on the Oscar™-winning motion picture. They have also toured nationally with Shinedown, Saliva and 311!
Hypnogaja is a new band to me. However, I really like them! I received their cd Truth Decay and think it's awesome! I can put the cd on and just listen to it for a while, it's got a nice feeling beat-wise. I also think the concept for it is a unique/interesting approach. I really like the first song, Dark Star! I also enjoy Apocalyptic Love Song, with its slow beginning and cool sound. I'm putting the Dark Star song from their Youtube for you to check them out!
