Sydney sludge and stoner punk metallers ASTRODEATH share the fun and #NSFW video for "Ceremonial Blood", the first single taken from their sophomore album "VOL.2" to be issued on May 12th through Heavy Psych Sounds!

ASTRODEATH's debut albulm “VOL.2" is looming and will be available through Tuff Cuff Records in Australia and Heavy Psych Sounds Records in Europe. Astrodeath will tour nationally in support of the release, leaving no stone unturned on their quest to bring sonic mayhem to audiences all over Australia.

About the video: “Ceremonial blood is a sacrificial offering of RIFF to our reptilian overlords, Cut from our sophomore LP Vol.2 and released worldwide through Heavy Psych Sounds and Tuff Cuff records in Australia. It is potentially our heaviest slab, Written as a soundtrack to our second Comic book (Illustrated by Glenno Smith), Ceremonial Blood will flow deep for fans of Sci-fi, Horror and Head banging. In the accompanying music video (Produced by John Flaws) I butcher my neighbour with a samurai sword in Yoshi’s bathtub and eat his leg….you’ll just have to watch it.. We are both HEAVILY PSYCHED to be sending Ceremonial Blood out worldwide! Horns Up!”

Watch the new video for Ceremonial Blood

VOL. 2" continues a mountainous sound borne of madness and revelation, ASTRODEATH report back from the precipice, bringing us haunting visions of a blind and indifferent universe and the hideous, mindless creations that lie in wait, insatiable in their desire to dominate and devour. Hailing from Cadigal Land in the Eora Nation (otherwise known as Sydney), singer/guitarist Tim Lancken and drummer Yoshi Hausler weave an otherworldly musical alchemy that belies their earthly origins and underpins the ritualistic hypnosis of Astrodeath's furious and intimidating sound, a titanic reverberation that far exceeds the sum of its twin parts.

Debut album "Astrodeath"

Out May 12th on Heavy Psych Sounds - PREORDER

Since 2018, Astrodeath have brought this musical mesmerism to audiences all across Australia, showing an uncanny ability to fit alongside bands from the stoner/doom, punk, hard rock and extreme metal scenes, effortlessly floating between genres. Their formidable work ethic has seen them sharing the stage with such luminaries as 1000 Mods, Nick Oliveri (QOTSA), Svetlanas, Beastwars, King Parrot, Revocation, Neptune Power Federation, Lo!, and Black Rheno. In 2022, Astrodeath headlined Thrashville Festival and delivered a legendary performance at Blacken Open Air in Alice Springs, culminating in dozens of rabid fans joining the band onstage. Astrodeath's sophomore album builds on the mythic lore and hypnotising sonic spells infamously cast on their debut self-titled album.
