From the press release:
Hi! I'm Hugo Selles, founder of Psychic Equalizer - an eclectic musical project featuring several styles such as classical, prog rock, pop, metal, ambient, jazz, etc. Our new album is called The Sixth Extinction and it's about the environmental crisis the world is facing. It is going to be the 5th release by Psychic Equalizer and we have created something so big that even blows my mind. In order to finish it, it would be amazing to have your support! :)
As we all know, the way music gets made (from a financial standpoint) has changed greatly in recent years, so here's your chance to make something happen that otherwise might spend eternity sitting on a shelf (or hard drive).
