Psychedelicatessen is the second studio album by Threshold, released in late 1994. It is their only studio album to feature Glynn Morgan on vocals until his return in 2017, and their only album with Nick Harradence playing drums. The band's members were displeased with the sound quality on the original release of the album, and had long desired to do a complete remix.[2] Their first fan club release Decadent, released in 1999, contained remixes of three songs from the album. The entire Psychedelicatessen album was later remixed for a 2001 Special Edition release.

The name of the album is a portmanteau of the words "Psychedelic" and "Delicatessen".
