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. 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 2019 self-titled debut album.
