Astronoid - Air LP
Released by Blood Music. More info from the label:
Astronoid - the astronomically-themed 'dream thrash' Boston five-piece twists through intense tremolo-picked galaxies, condensing soundscapes from a wide variety of artists – Alcest, Devin Townsend, Deafheaven, Dragonforce – to a single and very unique core. With two acclaimed EPs under their belt, the band was hard at work on their debut album for more than two years.
"Air" considerably ups the ante on the band's previous material, bringing in a gloss of soaring major key atmospheres alongside constant, intense, galactic shredding – eliciting something so familiar yet so unique. The record is in fact so accessible, yet like nothing we've ever heard before
