Astronoid is a metal quintet from Boston, MA that defy simple definition. Combining elements of black metal, shoegaze, punk, and dream pop, the band’s cross-blended medley draws comparisons ranging from Devin Townsend and Mew to Alcest, M83 and Deftones. Their first full-length album, Air, was released by Blood Music in 2016 as part of an evolving experience that complements their two acclaimed EPs from 2012-13, Stargazer and November. The driving rhythms, subtle time signatures and soaring vocal harmonies combine to from the perfect marriage of weird idea and wonderful execution. There’s always something new to discover hidden within the dense layers of thrashy guitar riffs and euphoric vocals.
