Music video for the track Confused Mind from the self titled LP Haunted By Hallucinations.
Guitarist Petri Toikkanen, who graces the liner notes of nearly all the Soul Investigators (“Home Cooking”, “Keep Reachin’ Up”) releases, as one of the formidable composers of the musical group, makes the debut of his project “Haunted By Hallucinations” with the self – titled album on Herakles Records.
The group was founded by Toikkanen & drummer Laura Könönen as they composed their songs through hypnotic jam sessions, with bass player, Jussi Oskari. The genre that sets the tone for this LP is the psychedelic cousin to that of metal and stoner/psychedelic doom. The phasers and flangers of stoner doom would be replaced with heavy doses of delay on Toikkanen’s personal genre of psychedelic rock. Toikkanen’s playing has textures of surf, harking the legend of surf, Dick Dale, together with blues, a prototype of Rock & Roll and progressive rock with Goblin-like synths pads. Toikkanen’s main instrument is a Fender Jazzmaster. Laura Könönen is also a visual artist, whose main medium is sculpture, has supplied the LP cover artwork with one of her paintings.
