Astrosaur – Visual Transmissions: Necronauts (Exclusive Official Video Premiere)

Astrosaur – Visual Transmissions: Necronauts (Exclusive Official Video Premiere)

Norwegian trio Astrosaur is currently releasing a three-part video series called “Visual Transmissions“, filmed at the Old Theater in Kristiansand, Norway. The first part was a cover of Radiohead‘s stunning “Pyramid Song” and premiered over at Norwegian site Evig Lyttar in October (Watch the video here).

Now the band is releasing the second video of the series exclusively here at The Progspace. “Necronauts” from the album “Fade In // Space Out” has been the band’s opener for a while. Our very own Dario wrote in his review back in October last year: “The ten minute opener ‘Necronauts’ puts everything Astrosaur is all about on display right away: a heavy, slow and sludgy opening riff, a soft and quiet middle part to build it up again for a finale between black metal and post rock. And coming full circle to the opening riff after nine minutes.

And certainly so, after having seen them live several times in the past opening for Leprous, Agent Fresco and Alithia in 2017, this video really captures everything the band has put out there in their music. In the band’s own words: “With this video series we really wanted to show what it feels like to experience Astrosaur in a live setting. In addition to conjuring images of astronauts losing their tethers to a spaceship, doomed to float through space and time forever, “Necronauts” also works as an introduction to what Astrosaur is about. It has been the opening number on pretty much all the shows we’ve done and includes a few of the different styles and moods we like to incorporate into our sound”

Astrosaur has just finished a successful EU tour with Ihsahn and Ne Obliviscaris and they’re right now working on their next album to be released on 2019.

So here it is, exclusive for all of our readers: “Visual Transmissions: Necronauts
