Third full-length and first since 2010 from the Swedish heavy psych rockers Asteroid. For the past ten years, Asteroid has been one of the trend setting bands in the independent psychedelic heavy rock community. With their origin in hard hitting stoner rock, they've constantly been adding more musical layers to evolve their own unique brand of rock. With inspiration taken from American and British Blues and Swedish folk music, the three piece always bring something new and fresh to the table.
Before taking a break in 2013, Asteroid released a split record in 2006, two full length albums in 2007 and 2009 and a 7" in 2012, all very highly regarded within the psychedelic rock scene. The band has been touring frequently since forming in 2004 and have played a couple of hundred shows all over Europe, which has led to a huge following and an ever growing fan base. After all these years together and all these concerts Asteroid is a very impressive act to watch live, where their genuine love for the music really shines through in every song. The trio is well known for making use of the entire musical spectrum with a rich and powerful musical energy that never leaves any stone unturned.
Made up of guitarist Robin Hirse, bass player Johannes Nilsson and recent addition Jimmi Kohlscheen on drums, Asteroid trade harmonious vibes and melodious riffs with all who listen. Treading the same murky waters found in some of the more menacing moments of Led Zeppelin's back catalogue, combined with their love for the tripped-out prog of Pink Floyd and raw energy of Howlin' Wolf, Asteroid is the real deal and their better than ever here!
