Hypnos 69 was founded in 1994, Diest, Belgium.
When Steve and Dave Houtmeyers decide in the summer of '94 to found a band with Tom Vanlaer, also the story of a band that
would bring new life to the '60s and '70s psychedelic underground rock-scene of today began: HYPNOS 69. The name was
appropriately taken from the ancient Greek god of Sleep and Subconsciousness. The number 69 stands for equilibrium and
stability; properties that can be retrieved in the marked sound of the band.
