CMX, originally Cloaca Maxima, is a Finnish rock band. They originally played hardcore punk, but soon expanded to play a wide variety of rock formats, including progressive rock, heavy metal, and mainstream rock 'n' roll. Throughout their career, they have been influenced by progressive rock bands such as Rush, Yes, Tool and King Crimson. The progressive influence is most evident on their albums Dinosaurus Stereophonicus (2000) and Talvikuningas (2007).
CMX have gradually gained large-scale mainstream following in Finland. They are especially known for the poetic lyrics of A. W. Yrjänä that often contain references to mythology and religion. Finnish rock magazines, particularly Rumba, have named them Best Band of the Year multiple times, and even Best Band of All Time on one occasion.
CMX was an imprint of DC Comics. It was DC's line of manga translations. CMX was known for its censoring of Tenjho Tenge and print version of Fred Gallagher's Megatokyo web manga series.

'Ψ ' (Greek Psi) is the first DVD by Finnish rock band CMX. It was released in 2001 and contains 15 music videos, three documentaries and four live performances. It covers the band's entire career until 2001, starting with 1985. The previously unreleased "Puuvertaus" single was included with the DVD.
In 2001 music DVDs were still rare in Finland, and the release wasn't without problems: Some of the released discs were accidentally in a monaural format, and they had to be exchanged.
