Sydney sludge/grunge/heavy as fuck duo Astrodeath exploded onto the scene with a clever and unique delivery for their debut self-titled album in 2019.

Sydney intergalactic metal warriors Astrodeath are one of those once in a generation bands that sees things unlike any of their peers and goes about their daily music business with a minimum of fuss but maximum rewards. 
After taking the novel approach of releasing their self titled debut album as a downloadable attachment to a comic book, the two members (yes, I said two) – frontman and axe slayer Tim Lancken and drummer Yoshi Hausler backed up what could have been a marketable flash in the pan with a hectic touring schedule that saw the likeable duo traverse the country and slay all before them.

Their music is both atmospheric and brutal carnage at the same time, a true sum of the parts of each individual member working in unison for a common goal.

What a shit of a week it’s been.
I have lost count of the amount of shows that have been postponed or cancelled, but what I do know is I should be getting ready to party at Blacken Open Air this time next week, but instead I still don’t know if I will be allowed out my front door… It’s the word we currently live in, but that doesn’t mean we have to like it!
