I first stumbled upon Astronoid about a year ago before the release of Air thanks to Bandcamp. I was drawn to their sound immediately but I was unable to form a conclusion as to what I thought of the band as a whole. After a few more listens to the EP The Stargazer I knew that this band possessed something unique and different that I have never heard before in the metal realm. They describe their sound as “Dream Thrash” so that gives you a little hint. The Boston quintet names Alcest, Devin Townsend, Mew, Windir, and Cynic as some of their influences and yet their music stands out all on its own.
