Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past couple years, you’ve undoubtedly heard of the mythical beast that is Psycho Las Vegas.

Minsk was fortunate enough to receive an invite to perform at the second edition, which took place this past August.

It should go without saying that any time you get a chance to share a bill with the likes of Neurosis, Swans, Sleep, Melvins, Mastodon, Carcass, Gojira, and The Brian Jonestown Massacre, you’re entitled to feel a bit giddy. Factor in three full days of incredible band after incredible band, and you can start to get an idea of just how amazing, grueling, and mind melting this festival truly was.

To say that it was an honor for Minsk to be included is the most ridiculous of understatementsWe will be unpacking the insanity of that weekend for a loooong time.
