3 stars US outfit SLYCHOSIS was formed in 2004, and while initially based around the compositional ideas of main man Greg Johns it would appear that the last few years have seen this project develop towards a more true-to-life band format, with the others members chiming in with their ideas in both the lyrics and music departments. "Mental Hygiene" is their third full-length production, and was issued by the Russian label MALS Records in 2010.

On "Mental Hygiene" Slychosis explores a rather varied musical landscape, with something of a basis in symphonic art rock of the less complex variety, and initial effort Geistly Suite arguably the most true-to-life progressive escapade. I'd suspect that fans of neo-progressive rock might be a key audience for this act, even if that expression in itself isn't covered to any great extent: This due to Slychosis venturing off into progressive metal, pomp rock and hard rock territories frequently, and as many neo acts have a similar approach I suspect this crowd might be one who'll find it easiest to enjoy a stylistic diversity of this nature.
