Band Info


Hypnosis were formed in 1993 and set about with our own fusion of the main influences shared within the band, thrash metal and 70's rock. Fronted by Andrew Merriman, with Gareth Wilson and Mark French on guitars, John Milthorpe on drums and Dave Griffiths on bass, Hypnosis wrote enough material for a full headline set within 18 months.

Come X-Mas 1994 the stage was set, at Huddersfields Polish Centre. Due to the early departure of Dave Griffiths, the bass guitarist slot was kindly filled by Guy Farrow (Conquest of Steel). The gig was a success and has started a fan base varying from young rock music fans to lovers of the old classics such as Led Zepp, Black Sabbath and Deep Purple.

Eventually the bass guitar position was filled by the frontman Andrew Merriman who passed over vocal responsibility to guitarist Mark French, who still fronts Hypnosis to this day.

The eventual outcome of 10 years of constant writing, recording and gigging in bars, clubs and venues in the north and midlands of England lead to several changes in the line up, keyboards (Matthew O'Conner) were brought in to replace the departed Gareth Wilson on guitars and Graham Hoyle has now replaced Andrew Merriman on bass.

The result? Hypnosis still have the groove of 70's rock, the sharp riffs of old school thrash metal but with the ever increasing dynamic overtones, after hearing Hypnosis it leaves you thinking only one thing...

Heavy Metal !!
