ASTROSAUR – song premiere
Eternal Terror Live presents the premiere of the second single from the upcoming album "Obscuroscope" by the Norwegian Post-Metal/Prog/Jazz act ASTROSAUR
The band declares the following about this new single "There’s so many great players and playthrough’s out there, so we wanted to try doing something different. The song is inspired by a famous occultist’s part in an expedition to one of the highest mountains in the world, so the video and the visuals in it have taken inspiration from this story, too.
The guitar I’m using is a Gibson Les Paul Standard from around 2005, I think. Bought it used as my first, proper instrument when I was starting out, and have been using it ever since. It came with these Seymour Duncan’s that I don’t think was in there originally. They are pretty hot in terms of output. Strings are 10 to 52’s, tuned to D standard."
ASTROSAUR’s virtuous necro-nautic universe consists of equal parts instrumental rock and post-metal, studded with lavish prog-, jazzmathrock– and black metal ornaments.
„The general public perceives academia and heavy metal as rivals, but ASTROSAUR, whose members studied at the Conservatory of Music in Kristiansand, lean toward the intellectual without sacrificing any authenticity“, Invisible Oranges said about the Oslo 3-piece. Virtuous guitarist and main song writer Eirik Kråkenes has filled in as a session musician for Norwegian acts Leprous and Ihsahn, among many others… he is one of those people you meet at literally every European metal festival, but always with a different band.
