ASTRAYA is a Post-Alternative Rock Band from Stuttgart, Germany. Their unique sound hails directly out of a parallel universe. Spherical post-rock meets metal meets great emotion. All of this paired with a certain amount of world weariness and the longing to be somewhere far away. They mourn about the coarsening of society and deal with questions about our existence. Their goal is to conquer the stages of our world and enchant us with their music. Epic vocals, exceptional guitar riffs and a dark melancholic spirit are the ingredients.
“The music picks up the atmosphere of the dutch pioneers The Gathering. The songs are built on heavyness and elegy.”
– Legacy Magazine
“Delivering a very well-done mix of Progressive Rock and Postrock, with beautiful melodies and a great vocal, in addition to a good weight, when the music calls for it.”
– Roadie Metal
“Epic vocals surrounded by hypnotive instrumental interludes, compactly interpreted.”
– Distrito Uve
“You people, aspire to my attitude. You people, always think I’m on your side.
But after all, noone of you, noone of you, could ever do me justice.
I’m ascending up into the sky, there far away, I’ll sit and watch, while the earth gets darker.
I’m the last one, you expelled me. Every fabulous being gone. Scared off, by vanity and pride.
Shame and awe remains, dying humans, gloomy wailing and no help to be seen.”
