Joining the ranks at Sliptrick Records:
Astral Sleep (FI) Doom Metal
Astral Sleep hails from Tellus, Finland. The group has wreaked havoc on the metal genre since 2005. Astral Sleep is thus currently one of the oldest doom metal bands from Finland that is still active. Their mission is finding eternal bliss in the world on its inevitable trajectory towards ‘doom’.
Astral Sleep’s music fuses various styles into an unique entity dubbed ‘Astral Doom Musick’. The boundaries of different sub-genres of doom are ripped apart, mingled with pieces of metal, jazz, rock, and noise and sown back together into the monstrosities that they are. The lyrical themes span the realms of dreams and astral planes, but entail also philosophical takes on life and death, the end of the world and the very essence of existence and soul.
The bands 4th album, We Are Already Living In The End of Times, is set for release via Sliptrick Records later in the year.
