Blastronaut are a brand new heavy rock band formed in August 2010 from bands such as The Shadowcops, Archer and Thade.
The ethos – if any – is painfully simple; Blastronaut are a heavy rock band in a long line of heavy rock bands who are desperately in love with monumentally huge riffs combined with visceral choruses and sweet, sweet melodies.
Influences include most blues music, specifically artists such as Leadbelly. Other major influences are The Melvins, Fu Manchu, Clutch and Orange Goblin.
Below is the new demo available for free download on Bandcamp. It was recorded live in the practice room by Ant Booth (http://www.antbooth.co.uk/), with vocals added afterwards.
Lead by the bravado vocals of Cal Armstrong, these blokes from Manchester, Uk blaze their way through four harmonious slabs of guitar-driven heavy rock. Press play and crank it up!Web|Facebook|ReverbNation|Blog
