Demo Cover Art

The members are

Blastronaut play some damn superb straight up Sludge/Stoner Metal to great effect. This is Stoner/Sludge Metal that is straight to the point. Loud, Heavy and superb riffs on show from start to finish.

Their S/T demo is 4 tracks and 15 mins in length. The 4 tracks here show this band can play a might fine Sludge/Stoner Metal riffs with great vocals to match.

OK it’s on the short side but there is much to admire here. The guys do have a talent for writing superb lyrics to match their great musicianship on show.

If you’re a fan of any of the modern Sludge/Stoner Metal bands then you will find much to enjoy here. It’s just a great EP that gets straight into the riffs. There is no waiting about for a loud heavy riff as Blastronaut are all about the loud Sludge/Stoner Metal riff.

The 4 songs are superbly produced and played by all involved. The songs have a great flow to them that lead on perfectly to the next song. It’s like one extended song broken up into 4 separate songs.

All in all this is a great EP to check out which you can download for free from their BandCamp Page or their Soundcloud Page.

The guys even include some 80s style old-school thrash metal riff on superb song “Piggy” but adding modern Sludge/Stoner Metal riffs to great effect.

All in all a great EP for everyone to check out. Highly Recommended.
